Best Mexican food ever

I know its saying a lot, but this was the best Mexican food ever. My customer took me there, he said it was great, he said the food was great, he said save room for the flan. The food was incredible. I didn't save room for the flan, but I ordered the flan anyway. I'm not saying I'm a big... read more

I think we misunderstood - I think she was trying to say "I don't miss it a bit." A major disappointment. This restaurant is in an industrial commercial district which is fine. It's quite large and the interior other than being very loud is clean and attractive. So if all you want is clean stay. But if your mouth is... More

Salsa and beer is one of the best places to eat in the San Fernando Valley, the staff is very friendly, prices are very reasonable, their margaritas are the best, a bit of a wait normally between half an hour or 45 minutes, but worth the wait, parking on the back you also have to wait but they have attendants...

Great authentic Mexican food, the best I've ever had! The food is delicious and fresh! If your are hungry, this is the place to go. They give large size portions of delectable Mexican cuisine. The service is friendly and very caring. Can't wait to eat there again!

Get on a bus, the train, a car or whatever and, if you like great Mexican food, that is prepared on the spot, great prices and excellent margaritas, GO HERE. This is about the best Mexican food I've ever eaten, and I've eaten lots. To start with, the bean dip that goes with the chips at the bar is amazing.... More

I love this place! There's almost always a little wait but well worth it. My wife and I usually sit at the bar where we don't have to wait. They have the best tortillas that are hand made. A great salsa bar too. My favorite dish is the Carnitas Fajitas... I can never even finish them. Great drink prices too.

Solid 3 stars. Yes, the parking sucks but at least they now have a system in place with guys in the parking lot directing you to the next open spot. We dropped someone off yo put our name in (45 min wait at 8pm on a Thursday) then waited in line for a parking spot. So by the time we... More
