Barney's Beanery in Redondo Beach is the sixth (and most recently opened) outpost of the famed chili and Mexican eatery that opened in 1920. Nine decades later the West Hollywood original on Santa Monica Boulevard is going strong; this beachfront version has the added attraction of a great ocean view (be sure to look for the sea lions, they are one of Redondo's most popular residents). The menus at all Barney's are similar, ranging from chilaquiles and huevos rancheros for breakfast to massive plates of nachos and taquitos during Happy Hour to a wide range of Mexican classics (tacos, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, tostadas and chimichangas) and that renowned chili served at any time you're in the mood. There's plenty of other more American fare on their vast menu and beer lovers will rejoice over all the different possibilities on offer. Take a craft-beer sampler flight or just order one of their massive 25-ounce steins; either way, it's a beer drinker's paradise here.
- Mexican: "Hit Barney's on Taco Tuesdays and pay only $1 for a beef or chicken taco. There are specials every other night, too."
- Best for Mexican Because: An L.A. institution, Barney's Beanery makes certain no one ever leaves the table hungry, serving up big portions of classic Mexican food.
