Casita Del Campo a classic Mexican restaurant in Silver Lake that's been a gay nightlife institution since the 1960s. While you don’t need to cross town to eat the food here, when the time comes to soak up those lethal margaritas with some food, you’re not going to be mad at their large menu of enchiladas, burritos, and big plates of meat. The place has two patios that both get rowdy every night, an indoor dining room with a giant rubber tree in the middle, and a theater in the basement with drag shows on the weekend.
