Mexican
Chef: Walter Manzke

Walter Manzke's Petty Cash is a semi-authentic taqueria with myriad talent drawn from East LA, Baja and beyond. Petty Cash's menu features re-conceptualized street food classics driven by the best local, seasonal ingredients, rooted in multi-generational tradition and technique.

Featuring urban elements such as hand-painted murals by local street artist RETNA and picnic style tables and bench seating which lend to a relaxed and playful communal dining experience. The street art meets street food vibe channels the spirit of Tijuana circa 1986 meets modern day LA. The equally spirited cocktail program features unique craft cocktails on draft and eclectic Mexican spirits.

    The live dj was outstanding, the drinks and chips and guacamole/salsa were great. The food was terrible, my fish taco was inedible. They brought out my husbands food when the rest of us were already done (or in my case, decided not to finish because I was a red the fish would make me sick, given it’s taste). It shouldn’t be hard to make exceptional Mexican food in this city. At the prices they are charging it should be outstanding not inedible.

    The Birria tacos were particularly fantastic, but everything was extremely good! Homemade, hot and fragrant corn tortillas. Go for the Birria and the Al Pastor. I’ll definitely be coming back often!

    I have been going to petty cash since 2016. I always have a great experience. The cauliflower nachos are my favorite that no other place can recreate. This was an amazing birthday experience. The manager happened to have the same birthday and she went above and beyond to ensure my experience was special! I appreciate all the wonderful staff, the amazing food and the drinks that kept flowing which all made my day incredible!

    Always our first and last port of call when we arrive in LA. Great margaritas - the Good Sh*T with a chilli rim for me and Pineapple Habanero for him. Great tacos and lovely service in a fun, down to earth atmosphere. Highly recommend for a casual night out with friends or family.

    Decent trendy spot. Tacos are massively over priced. Food was really good though, especially the pork quesedilla. Service was slow, but they warned us they were short staffed. All the servers that were there were great though. Not sure if I'd go back though because the pricing

    Fabulous food. Amazing staff at every encounter. TOO LOUD for us. We sat outside and enjoyed our food. I wish they played softer, latin music, Rodrigo Amarante, Lila Downs; there are so many that would enable folks to converse without shouting... I'm sure we'll be back, but still sitting outside at the picnic tables. Other restaurants have done a better job creating an atmosphere around their outdoor seating.

    Petty Cash has been a favorite since it opened 12/13 years ago! The music and crowd always makes for a festive evening out with the kiddos who were babies in their little red wagon when we first started coming. Also great for a date night. Only wish there were more vegetables and straight protein options. Can you do lettuce wrap tacos?

    nice vibe and buzzy, quite loud. pretty expensive for what you get. Also, with these prices, no reason to shift the "health and welfare" amount over to the clients. This is the employer's responsibility.

    Petty Cash is one of my go-tos. Great drinks, fabulous nachos, lively vibe. But when did they start playing the music at full volume? Me and my party had to yell at each other all night. Didn't used to be so aggressive.

    DJ spinning club music was too loud, people at tables for to speak loudly because they can’t hear each other. My cocktail was was too sweet so I sent it back and then it came back just as sweet as the first one. The third attempt finally reached me when we were paying our bill. Food is highly overpriced for small portions served.

    We waited 25 mins mins after we were seated before anyone brought us water. We asked for our server twice leading up to that and weren’t given much attention. Based on service alone, or lack of, I wouldn’t recommend this place. Food is ok, but tacos are tiny and not worth the value.

    Well prepared food. Ample portions Cauliflower nachos are great and at least feel like you’re eating something w healthy aspect . Having been charged $1.00 additional for a little extra crema for fish taco was offensive. If enough had been on taco in first place, then wouldn’t have needed more. Select wisely. Really cool tequila shot.

    We had outstanding service. The wait staff is very attentive. The food is always delicious. And we love the cocktails too! We sat outside because we like to bring our dog, but it can be loud near the street. Obviously nothing to be done since it's a busy street so select your location carefully. Can't wait to go back!
