  • At the various LA soccer pubs, you're lucky to get scrambled eggs and limp bacon with your Cup match. But Guelaguetza is one of the best Oaxacan restaurants in the country! Try the botana platter!
  • At Guelaguetza, you'll find tlayudas, like bean-smeared Oaxacan pizzas, the size of manhole covers; thick tortillas called memelas; and delicious, mole-drenched tamales.
  • Cant decide among the multitude of moles? Get the sampler.
  • Featured in LA Weekly's 99 Essential Restaurants!
  • order mole negra and a michelada and dance
  • Traditional Oaxacan bites, all reasonably-priced, served in simple Mexican digs. [Eater 38 Member]

  • Excellent Oaxacan food with live music!
  • Must try the Michelasa, Mole Negro & Chapulines!
  • The mole sampler is awesome. Good for 2 people.
  • I don't know if this place is worth the wait. I thought the mole was... just okay; the tamale was the best part of the meal. But I couldn't hear my dining companions over very loud music.
  • The mole here is the big draw, and rightly so. Big portions, fun vibe for a Mexican restaurant in the middle of K town
  • Awesome Mexican mole! Cocktails and drinks are exotic and pleasant. Mole chips and the mole sampler were very satisfying.
  • The micheladas are great!
  • A small selection of Mexican groceries is sold here, including real deal Mexican chocolate tables and some of the best raw quesillo (melting cheese) that we've had.
  • The live music is fun. The tylayudas are unique and the mole sampler is great!
  • Holy mole! This place is good
  • The micheledas always hit the spot and are a must have!!!
  • When they are good. They are very good. Have been there about 4 times. Micheladas, black beans, drinks made with mezcal.
