The Latigo Kid – A Pre Canyon Club Tradition

by Brian

We do a lot of Mexican food reviews on this site.  So many that I’m kinda getting tired of Mexican food.  I ate at the Latigo Kid over a week a go, but just didn’t really feel like writing it up, mostly because we’ve had better reviews that needed to be posted.  Still, it’s only fair that I give this place their shot at EatMeCalifornia infamy.  Plus it’s great material for a lazy Sunday evening.

The Latigo Kid – Next to the Canyon Club, Kanan exit off the 101 freeway.

So, I had never been to this place before.  But I had always seen tons of people coming out if it before making their way next door to party at Canyon Club.  For those of you who don’t know, Canyon Club is the best place to catch all of your favorite 80s bands that have no business still touring, yet continue to do so anyway.  They also have a great 80s coverband called the Spazmatics, that performs every Thursday night.  If you go on a Thursday, you’re guaranteed to have a good time.  But this isn’t a review of the Canyon Club, so I’ll leave it at that.

The Latigo Kid is a decent sized place, despite the fact that it looks tiny from the parking lot.  The decor is your standard Mexican restaurant fare, except the fact that they have some cool murals painted on the walls.  The vibe is pretty low-key and not as raucous as Los Toros in Chatsworth.

If you’ve been playing along at home, you already know Mikey’s boy Trent is a soccer star and recently discovered savant.  What you don’t know is that he went and did what every kid always does… he got sick.  That’s how it came to pass that the baton would fall to me to post this fine evening.  Lucky for me I skipped lunch.

Yolanda’s – On Los Angeles Ave. between First and Madera, Simi Valley

I’ve been wanting to go to this place for a long time, but just haven’t had the opportunity.  Well, that all changed tonight.  Since Yolanda’s is right on my way to the skating rink (yeah, i’m a nerd like that) I figured I just couldn’t pass it up.

The first thing I noticed was that this place was huge.  I know it looks tall from the photo I took, but that isn’t the half of it.  They have a decent sized bar, big patio and two huge banquet hall sized dining rooms.  I think the only place that’s bigger is Los Toros, but that’s because they just kept annexing territory in their own attempt at manifest mexican food destiny.
