A saucy guide to all things discount and delicious in L.A.

Three years have passed since we scoured the city for 101 of the most delicious places to chow down—and well—for $15 or less. Since then L.A.’s economical eating terrain has only grown. We’ve built something of a reputation for being the ultimate cheap eats city, for having the most tummy-tempting selection of ethnic dives, gourmet trucks, taco stands, and burger joints in the country. With that in mind, Los Angeles magazine brings you a brand-new guide to 101 more of the most fabulous yet frugal meals our town has to offer. Wet-naps not included.
