La Cabanita

Restaurant:  La Cabanita
Location:  3445 N Verdugo Rd, Glendale, CA 91208
Like/Don't Like:  How do you say "I loved it so much I wanted to marry it" in Spanish?

Quick, everyone, get in my car!  I'm going to take you to La Cabanita and then you'll throw a parade in my honor.  You can walk down any street in town and find good Mexican food.  This was GREAT Mexican food.

Bronwyn was in town (yay!) and she requested Mexican for lunch so I got on Yelp and was directed here.  Thanks Yelp!

The chips and salsa were fresh and really, really delicious.  Particularly the brown salsa.  It was very peppery - which is just how I like it.

We told the server it was our first time and asked for recommendations and ended up with the pork chops, which were fall-off-the-bone tender, enchiladas with mole (amazing) and rancheras (equally amazing), and a taco norteno (I could have had ten).  Everything tasted so fresh and their sauces were killer.  If I didn't already have plans I would have stayed for dinner and then camped out for breakfast.

It's out of the way for most of you who read this but if you're in the area you're going to want to stop in.

I really like this post, I wish I could visit the place you're talking about.

Ahh. My mouth is watering. Or would be if I hadn't had three cupcakes, four sugar cookies, two handfuls of M&Ms, and 32+ oz. of diet coke today. I tried to even it out with a piece of buttered toast for dinner. Feelin' kinda sick Valentine's Day.
