Just the best Carne asada, hand made tortillas and beans. The very basic Mexican food cooked at it's best. Back to basics, just add fresh salsa and you are ready !

I like the pretty entrance patio and the view of the golf course. When I entered, I was greeted by a multitude of waiters, yet once seated, the service was only average. The menu consists of dull cuts of beef flung onto the plate without ceremony or sauce, and tiny the wine list has few choices. Maybe I will return... More

I haven't been there in a while but they have excellent food and the best grilled steaks and chops anywhere! I started going there about 20 or so years ago when the Los Angeles Times did a story about "La Lena" and how they grilled steaks right over mesquite wood. After my first visit, I made it a point to... More
