Petty Cash Taqueria & Bar
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.
STAFF WAS GREAT ! A little loud for me, but I'm ancient. I appreciate a lighter more veggie friendly menu.
Very tasty - love it when they open the front windows and it feels like we are eating outside
Margaritas are wildly overpriced considering their tiny size, but they are delicious.
I know it was Cinco de Mayo, but the music was so brutally loud, everyone seemed miserable.
After numerous tables kindly asked forn the music to be turned down they continued not to listen. It was a challenge to have a conversation with people at the same table and didn't feel as though the service care whatsoever
Food & drinks were so good!!! Friendly service! I’m not sure if the decor was for the next day (Cinco de Mayo) but regardless the place was nice. Love the Retna mural!
Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful customer service we received at your establishment on Saturday, May 4th. So as a group we just wanted to thank you and with service like that you will always definitely be a Los Angeles favorite. Thank you
The service was okay. The overpriced menu was limited with regards to food and drinks. Disappointed as we were excited to try the place.
Food was excellent, without Happy Hour pricing you’re paying a hefty amount for everything. The tortillas are particularly good. Room can be a bit loud.
Great place, Very good as always!!!! One thing .... for years the have the chicharones... when are you going to bring them back.... please !!!
Service was excellent and food was amazing! Tacos were all delicious! We had shrimp tacos, octopus tacos (my fave) and the carne asada tacos. The ceviche was just ok in my opinion, however the guacamole is deeelish! I would definitely come back again and I have been there many times in the past! Definitely my go to for tacos!!
Our favorite restaurant in LA! We go there often, as a family, with the kids, with friends and always choose it as a destination restaurant when out of town Freinds are in LA.
We had a great time celebrating my girlfriends birthday!
Food was great, just a little loud.
Delicious ! The seasonal quesadilla is great! They always have some new dishes based on what’s available at the farmers market.
Best tacos. Authentic with a touch of something else.
Very tasty food. Great tacos!
Pork taco was very fatty. Had two 'Good Sh*t ' margaritas that were just average weak. The steak quesadilla was good but I won't be back for it.
Great food but they clean up after you way to fast. You’re still chewing and they whisk away the plates
I've been a few times and I love the food. The problem is that I leave hungry and broke. It is overpriced for what you get.
Always a great experience
Best Mexican in La!! The food is so good and the margaritas 😋😋😋 we wanted to come back for a second time on our trip! Must visit when in LA
Petty Cash is our go-to for Mexican, especially when we are entertaining out of town guests. The food is exceptional: creative, delicious and good value for the money. The guacamole is to die for. Ditto the brisket quesadilla. And the roasted brussels sprouts. All the tacos are great, but I especially like the octopus, carne asada and the pork with pineapple. The flan dessert is really closer to a creme brulée and it is da bomb.
Horrible food. Loud.
Portions could have been larger for ceviche
Really yummy. A bit on the expensive side. Love the kale nachos.
Very cool atmosphere and the Califlower Nachos are amazing!
Great food, drinks & atmosphere. Super lively on a Friday night.
It’s the third time we’ve been there and we can’t wait to go back.
Delicious and healthy! What could be better! Cauliflower nachos—the best!
I requested a specific table earlier in the day . We were on time for the reservation and the table was not available . Our drinks arrived after the food was served . The wait staff was nice and apologetic .
I come here a lot and always enjoy the food and the service.
Out server Lauren was absolutely amazing! She totally rocked a super busy Friday happy hour rush and made us feel completely taken care of. I’d hurt my back and needed to stand and she made sure I had the space and was comfortable. 10 stars for her!
Noise level doesn’t make for very easy conversation...so not ideal for a first date.
The atmosphere at this place is great! I made a reservation through opentable and got seated quickly. Try the margarita and the baja fish taco and al pastor taco. Yum
Very noisy and they didn’t serve our food at the same time. They also forgot about one of our dishes all together until we asked. They were very nice though. And great food
Best food and staff in LA.
Go for happy hour with friends and order off the Munchies menu; it won't be a full meal, if you want that, you'll have to order quesadillas and multiple tacos. Food is average but flavorful. Very cool space though, worth a visit to have a drink and enjoy those delicious corn chips.
Delicious as always, especially the Brussels Sprouts dish!
