Good Veggie Burrito and service

Great salsa and the speed of getting orders ready for take out food is very quick. It is a nice family neighborhood restaurant for a quick meal.. although could use a better decor.

I had an early meal and found that I was there in happy hour, so we thought that we'd stick to happy hour drinks. The draft Modelo was easy - it was draft beer and yummy. I usually get Cadillac margaritas but since their regular margarita was offered at the happy hour price I decided to give it a go,... More

It's not bad but it's not great either....it's close to our house so we go frequently but that's the only reason.

My friend and I went to Flamingo's Mexican Restaurant and Grill to order their chili rellanos combination plates. It had good flavor. I wish they would stuff a bit more cheese on the inside of each chili. Their chips and salsa are always good; tonight it was even better, as it had a little kick.

I tried to eat at flamingos with friends and family for a birthday and we had a large group (14 people). We called ahead and they said no problem, that they would start getting the tables ready, so we got there and they saw that 8 of our 15 people happened to be children, then they changed their story and...

great food! Great service! Great atmosphere! Perfect for families, large groups, or just a couple! The Mexican food here is perfect for everyone. It is not overly spicy. Great menu with plenty of options. Also they have taco Tuesday night!

We like this restaurant a lot! We usually get take out and it is always very good. If you like real Mexican food, they can't be beat. We used to go to another Mexican restaurant in the area but the food is more Southwest Mexican rather than true Mexican food we enjoy! Very nice people run this restaurant and they... More

We stopped in for dinner. It was recommended to us by a local. We heard about the Big Juan and my husband and I decided to share it. I don't know how anyone could possibly eat that by themselves. It was ok, the green chile sauce was good but it just didn't blow us away. Kids meals ran $7 and... More

Reading other reviews of Flamingos makes me feel like I am talking about a different restaurant. I think this is one of the worst Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. My sons and I ate there and ordered taco plates. The tacos were nothing close to authentic and tasted bland. The wait staff was incredibly slow and not very... More

They seem to have a great happy hour menu and the prices are definitely unbeatable in the area. I do think that those who raved about authentic Mexican food are a bit confused as to what authentic Mexican actually is. If your looking for a fun happy hour dinner in LH this is your place.
