My wife and I have been coming to La Villa for many years and just decided this evening that it's time to write a review. This is a local place on Crenshaw in Gardena. A word of warning: heed the signage regarding parking on Crenshaw before 6PM. There is a small lot behind the restaurant with limited parking. Parking will be the only problem you will encounter at La Villa.
The food and the service are both excellent! Very friendly, professional staff. The value for your dollar is outstanding. For example, this evening the daily special was 1- cheese enchilada, 1- flauta w/cream cheese and guacamole, a very generous portion of rice & beans, plus a choice of soup or salad.... all for $7.99! How can you possible beat that?
Tonight I had the #6 combination dinner (my favorite!)... It came with 1- beef taco, 1- pork tamale, 1- cheese enchilada, and the aforementioned rice & beans. Believe me, this is a FULL plate! Cost: $10.99! Considering they start you off with complimentary chips w/salsa and bean-dip - you will not leave hungry! Everything is flavorful; served hot and delicious! My wife (commendably adhering to her diet following a sojourn to New Orleans - you know what I mean?) limited herself to a dry bean & cheese burrito for just $6.99. She shared my rice & beans which were really more than enough for two people. Without drinks, the total bill was less than $20.00! In my opinion, the best value in the South Bay!
La Villa is a local, casual place - nothing fancy. However, the food, the service, and the value make it an outstanding bargain. They also offer a wide variety of beers and soft drinks. I love this place!
If you are in the mood for some great Mexican food, along with great service and true value, you could do much worse than La Villa.
I highly recommend it!
