    I am in LA staying near the airport for one night before leaving Friday afternoon. I plan on hitting the In N Out on Sepulveda. Any recommendations on Mexican food close to LAX?

    Lotta strip clubs within 6 blocks of LAX.

    Don't know about Mexican but I'd hit the taco trucks if you find any. You could probably 4square "Mexican restaurants" nearby to get some suggestions.

    Thanks Xan, didn't know if trucks would be close and I am not getting a car.

    Of the 10 on the first page, only No. 7 is actually close to LAX.
    What hotel are you staying at? Tito's Tacos in Culver City is awesome.
    There's also one of the Campos chain on Jefferson and Centinela. Looks like a shithole, but the food is really good.

    At the Radisson on West Century, figure I can walk to In N Out to see what the fuss is about, would love some good Mexican though!

    Crowdsourced a bit on FB for you. One person said this:

    Paco's Tacos - 6212 W Manchester Ave Westchester, CA 90045
    (310) 645-8692 ... Not "Top Shelf" really, but very, very good and full bar

    I walked to the In N Out Burger on Friday night. It was delicious and now I am ready to enter the Five Guys vs In N Out debate :). It was cool to sit outside on the LAX glidepath, watch the planes, and chow down, place was packed, inside and out.

    I got my Mexican fix at a family owned place in Hawthorne, unpretentious and super yummy, will be going back.

    At least you didn't have to deal with that Rotweiler.

    Best advice I'm going to give you, do not run through LAX. Definitely not a good idea. Just ask Joe Morgan.

    Avoid the 405.

    And 605 and 105 and 110 and 91 and pretty much the LA freeway system.
