Hollywood caters pretty well to the drunk food crowd, but nothing quite beats the pilgrimage down Vine to Cactus Taqueria #1. What’s essentially a stand in the middle of a strip-mall parking lot, Cactus has solid Mexican standards across the board, but for our money, we’ll never pass up their #5 Burrito. We couldn’t tell you what’s in it, but you’re already halfway done with it anyways. Warning: cash only. But open till 4am on the weekends.
