As you power down toward the Santa Monica Freeway from Hollywood, the Mexican-American drive-thru institution Lucy's is a logical place to go; carnitas tacos, wet chile verde burritos, enchilada platters and really crisp French fries that have picked up a toasty sweetness from being fried in the same oil as the tortilla chips. Lucy's may not have the best Mexican food in Los Angeles, but it may be as well as you can do without actually getting out of the car.
