Very good meal and you feel like family

This is a very worthwhile stop on a busy section of Huntington Blvd (the old Route 66) in Monrovia, just west of Pasadena and Arcadia. If you come when it's not too busy you will definitely be treated like family. This area is filled with "big box" restaurants and it's nice to have an authentic... read more

We've enjoyed Los Gueros since we discovered it years ago. It's a small hole in the wall place with some outside seating, great food, hot, generous portions and guacamole to die for! They have wonderful chips and salsa too! I recommend the Chiles Rellenos, the shredded beef chimichanga and the chilaquiles! The service is great but the door is always... More

Had the Huevos Rancheros served with homemade tortillas.., authentic and fresh. My wife had the breakfast burrito (eggs, potato, bacon, rice and beans. Way too big for one person, but delicious. I will return!!!

Loved the service, the food, and the prices. Tableside guacamole is to die for. Huge drinks and huge portions make this restaurant a local favorite. Dine outdoors if you can. Just lovely!

I was the only patron at the restaurant, which could have been a bad sign, but I got good service, what tasted like freshly made salsa and food, and a decent bottle of beer. I can't say it was particularly memorable, but it was convenient to my location at the time of my visit.

Tableside Guacamole is fantastic. The owner Danny seems to have left the country but the new owner/manager is such a sweet person. The food here is so good, it is very small and the restrooms show the age of the place sadly, but maybe only for me it is a challenge as there are some steps up to it and... More

A small, traditional Mexican eatery with outstanding food. I grew up in LA, so Mexican food is a staple of my diet. Los Gueros is authentic, flavorful, well prepared fare. They prepare guacamole table side and their tortillas are hand made. Cilantro and garlic flavor their home made salsa. Hubby had chicken fajitas and I had taquitos. Amazing! If you... More

Great guacamole is prepared as you like it right in from of you. The atmosphere is very relaxed and causal. Home-made tortillas are served on the weekends. The enchilada verde is rich and flavorful. If you like Mexican food, this will soon become one of your favorites.
