Excellent service and food.

Was on a business trip to Long Beach, went to another well reviewed Mexican restaurant, only to find them closed. We sat at a table in the bar, One of the best waitresses I have ever experienced took care of us. The food was the real star. Everything we had was spot on excellent. I could... read more

Came here for dinner after seeing this place on yelp. I order the carne asada taco plate (w/beans and rice), and 1 hard shell chicken taco. The carne asada tacos were slightly less tasty than I expected, and the meat was a little hard/overcooked. However, the chicken taco was beyond amazing! It was delicious. I'll definitely be back for the... More

I visited one of the two locations on a recommendation from a friend that lives nearby. This place just sets off the vibe of authentic Mexican. Large wall paintings captures the attention of the eyes. Staff all greet you and prompt to seat you. Menus and beverage order taken. Fresh chips and salsa along with water are delivered. Staff was...

I went here because of all the wonderful reviews. What I had was not bad, but not good either, so not worth another visit. I had chiliquiles with scrambled eggs. This is one of my favorite dishes. The tortilla chips in the chiliquiles were too crisp for my liking. However, the sour cream was an excellent touch. The horchata was... More

OK Wait, Chicken Suiza!! No where is this dish made better than Los Compadres in Long Beach. You can go to either place. The one on 10th & Pine or the one on Anaheim. Plus there's one in Norwalk. Start with one of the best Margaritas around. Tasty, ice cold and STRONG Yeah. Then try the Queso Fundido con Chorizo.... More

Thats a big responsibility! Best Mexican Food in Southern California? YOU GOT IT! Oh my aching gut! Seriously, I flock to this place each time I am in Southern California. The prices are inexpensive, the quality is great, and the staff is awesome. Definitely authentic! The Chili Verde is my favorite dish; either in a Happy Hour Burrito or the... More

It is to bad, the place has good food at a reasonable price. Service is also good. But I really think the management should do something about the fly's by the window facing Anaheim St. Long Beach, CA. I have mentioned it to the staff but it seams they must need professional assistance from a exterminator. If you're seating in... More
