Pleasant visit

On my way to the airport to get my last Mexican food fix a buddy of mine took me here. I ordered the cheese and beef enchiladas. The food was served promptly and was hot out of the kitchen. The location is in a strip mall area but we were greeted by a smiling and accommodating host. The... read more

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.

One of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Food is always good. Service is always the best. They always greet you with a smile. Quick with the food, quality is good. Over the past 15 years, we have never had a complaint.

A wonderful surprise while traveling through Southern California! We found the Flamingo Mexican Grill on line, were close by and decided to give it a try. I would come back just for the chili rellenos. Wow! Fairly quick seating (15 min.) even on a very crowed Tuesday night. Enjoyed a generously poured margarita while waiting. Great service. We were greeted... More

Don't let the location fool you, Flamingos has great consistent food with quality service. It gets crazy with taco Tuesday. Also, it has a convenient location of the 5fwy, so if you are on the way to LA or San Diego, it would be a great place to stop for a non chain restaurant with excellent service. The decor is...
