West LA's best Mexican Food.. Love this place. I had the super burrito. It was the size of my head. I had a dream about it the other night. You also can't beat Dollar Taco Night!!
Overrated. While this place is known for its inexpensive taco night, I was there another night. One of the worst most unimaginative Mexican dinners that I have ever had. Tacky worn out decor. Mediocre service. Best I can say about this place is that I did not get food poisoning.
Mexican Food. I was one of the loyal customers at Don Antonios for years, my wedding rehersal after party was there. I had great memories until few weeks ago when I took my co-workers on a Wednesday night. Yes the day for taco special. Well because of transportation we were split in two cars. When 4 of us got there the host refused to give us a table because we were missing the rest of the group. I'm a latina and I spoke to her in spanish told her what was going on, I also asked if this was a new policy because I never had this problem & I requested to speak to the Manager, she still refused to give a table and refused to let me speak to the Manager instead walked away. Here I was feeling like a fool in front of my co-workers to whom I have pictured "Paradise". The host was rude and basically showed us the door. Our "fun" night turned out to be a nightmare, thanks to an uneducated host. Good bye Don Antonio's you broke my heart that night. My family and friends will never go back there again. Lilly B.
Best Mexican Food ever!!!. I am very satisfied, so delicious and cheap. very great atmosphere!!!
$1 Menu Mexican Style. This is one of my favorite Mexican spots in LA, and considering the competition, that’s saying something. The best time to go is Wednesdays for their $1 Taco nights. Obviously, this is a great deal so the place gets packed, and it’s important to go knowing that you’re going to have to wait a LONG time for a table. Embrace this though- have some chips and a few drinks in the bar area (the tacos taste even better after a few margaritas.) If the bar is too crowded, the little secret is to put your name at Don Antonio’s and then head across the street to Liquid Kitty for a few cheap drinks. If you’re still standing by the time your table is ready, you have to order the potato tacos. WHAT? I know it sounds weird, but they are incredible (and vegetarian). To sum up: Go here for a good time with friends, cheap food and good drinks. Do NOT go here expecting great and quick service.
Decent Mexican food, random service, terrible host.
I've been going to Don Antonio's on and off for about four years now. The food is decent Tex Mex and overpriced compared to many small mom and pop shops that are just as good. I usually go when I'm craving their fajitas which are excellent. Service is a crap shoot and depends on who you get as your waiter. I'm giving the restaurant one star based on my most recent visit.
I went on a Thursday night and was told that I would be seated in 20 minutes by this host with a pony tail....I'm guessing he's the owner. After twenty minutes, I checked in and was told that I would be called next. I was never called over the speaker phone and checked again. The host said that he called my name, but I was literally ten feet away from him and didn't hear a thing. This happens four more times!!! While this is happening, the host is getting hammered on vodka tonics as he's working. I only managed to get seating after literally pulling a group of waiters aside and complaining, while the apparently drunk host was just standing there doing nothing. Other people had this problem as well, but not as bad as my case. Don Antonio's has definitely lost a longtime customer here, along with any one in my network I can share this experience with. Their food isn't that good to be treating their patrons like this.
Delicious Mexican food!. I am a Santa Monica native, so Don Antonio's is not only a good choice because it's semi-close, but it's also reasonably priced and has good food! They used to have cheaper combo plates and dishes, but their prices are still very reasonable and fair for the amount of food they give you! Every time I go, I never need to order more than 2 dishes for my boyfriend and I (and we are not light eaters). The chimichangas are my favorite, and the burrito especial is also good. The nachos are huge! (it is a meal and then some-with either chicken or ground beef, both are good choices). Ordering just the nachos, and the burrito is WAY ENOUGH for 2 people. We took almost half of each dish home last time! Anyways, I have never tried their drinks at the bar or had their tacos, but the ambience is nice (a bit dark) but it's kind of romantic almost. Don Antonio's is definitely my go-to place whenever I am choosing to dine out for Mexican!!
Nice place but not well lit. I have been here for lunch many times and the food is good and they get you in and out quickly. No doubt it is dark and you do have to come in and wait in the service area but for lunch it was no worry. Never had a bad meal or a screwup.
