WHY HERE: Daily weekday happy hour is a major draw at this West Hollywood cantina. From 5 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, wash down five-buck Margaritas and three-buck Tecate beers with price-slashed nachos, quesadillas or ceviche. And for the sweetest deal, get your choice of two tacos (potato, chicken or carnitas) with rice and beans for just $6.

WHY NOW: You deserve to splurge. The food here may be straightforward—tequila shrimp, elote and turkey flautas with mole hit the spot—but the dozen-page tequila list will take some time to get through. For special occasions, pay a little extra for a prix fixe tequila flights like La Jefa ($45): Stallion añejo, Don Fulano reposado, Casa Noble crystal blanco and Del Maguey crema de mezcal.
