Happy Hour

We went here for Cinco De Mayo. The happy hour prices were good but I was less impressed by the food and service.

Classic flavors, generously served, priced well. Perfect evening meal, though they serve Breakfast and Lunch as well. Never had a chance to get back there for them.

Live within a few blocks and have eaten there many times. Over the years, there has been a steady decline. Good for late nite meals on weekends but the service is terrible! Quality of the food has been a steady decline.

I like Ordonez because it offers that small Mexican cafe feel and the food is decent. They have some nice menu selections that are reasonably priced and the service is usually very good. It is conveniently located just south of the 60 freeway about 8 miles from downtown LA. I like to dine at Ordonez after I play golf at... More

What a place ! ! you come to enjoy a nice meal and the food is nothing to "write home about". The proprietor invites herself to our table and dares to order the most expensive drink to be charged to our bill. Certainlly not what I was expecting. Never Again ! !.

Received so much hype from friends... but now I know why. they're drunk when eating at this restaurant & because it's open 24 hours. I decided to go for lunch... the place needs a major clean up, it felt I was in my early 80's. We ordered Queso Fundido con Chorizo (it was super GREASY) and our meals were very... More

It's within walking distance of the hotel where I was staying for work. The margaritas are very good but not very strong. They serve draft beer in huge goblets. There are a lot of food choices and even though it's pretty standard Mexican fare, the food is satisfying.
