Located on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks, Casa Vega is easily one of LA’s most recognizable Mexican restaurants and perhaps your best chance at spotting your landlord and a Kardashian eating one booth apart from one another. This 60-year-old operation is one of those magical LA places where A-list celebrities and regular locals co-mingle without much fanfare. The margaritas are deadly and that lobster quesadilla is a must-order. They don’t take reservations though, so get there early or prepare to wait.
