Like most everyone who watches, I, too, think Spencer and Heidi from The Hillsare complete douchbags – but I still had to go find the restaurant they seem to visit on every episode – Don Antonio’s. It was easy enough to find with a simple Google search and, with camera in hand, my boyfriend and I ventured out there one Friday night. It is a cute little place, that is usually jam packed with people. I thought at first that the many visitors were all Hillsfans like myself hoping for a Speidi sighting, but now that I have eaten there, I realize that most likely the hordes of people are there for the food and not the celeb sightings. The food at Don Antonio’s is nothing short of INCREDIBLE! The homemade chicken tamales, the special burrito, and the fajitas are my favorites – but no matter what you chose, you cannot go wrong!!! My boyfriend and I now visit Don Antonio’s at least twice a week – alas with no sightings of Spencer and Heidi as of yet. But we did see Anne Ramsay, who played Helen Hunt’s sister on Mad About You, in the bar one night. Upon arriving I always ask if Spencer and Heidi are there eating, but I’ve never had the luck of being there at the same time. According to the ultra-friendly employees, who now know me as “the girl who is always looking for Spencer and Heidi”, they dine at Don Antonio’s at least three times a week, usually around 7PM at night. Hopefully one day I’ll get to see Speidi in the flesh, but until then, I am perfectly happy just enjoying the food at my new favorite restaurant!
Note – And no, according to employees, the “Spencer Steak” on the menu is not named after Spencer from The Hills.
Until next time, Happy Stalking!
Stalk It:Don Antonio’s is located at 11755 W. Pico Blvd. in West Los Angeles, near Overland Ave. There is plenty of street parking most of the time, but on Friday evenings after 7PM, you’ll be lucky to even get a valet spot – and the wait is usually over 45 minutes. Trust me, though – it is well worth it!!! Come for the celeb sightings – stay for the food! The prices are super reasonable, too.
