Savor modern Mexican food at Playa Amor, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Mexican Restaurants in Los Angeles

Mix-and-match plates with rice and beans can be pure comfort, and people flock to burritos and quesadillas like kids to candy. Still, Mexican food has so much more to offer, with traditions that span 31 states, plus the capital of Mexico City (known as Distrito Federal). Culinary influences even predate Christopher Columbus' “discovery” of the United States. Luckily for Angelenos, the city has absorbed many of these influences, meaning you can find authentic, regional Mexican cuisine across L.A. County, along with some restaurants that deliver uniquely SoCal touches. Learn about 10 of L.A.'s best Mexican restaurants, presented in alphabetical order.
