Late night dining

The only good thing about Ordonez is they are open 24/7. The food is not very good but it is edible. The service is not very pleasant and the place needs a remodel. Considering how much business they do, they should upgrade all the restaurants they own in town

I was actually headed out to a different restaurant because earlier when I drove by Ordonez (I'm traveling here in Montebello on business and Ordonez is very close to the hotel) it looked like it was closed. But as I was headed to a more distant place, I saw the neon "Open" sign and stopped. Am I glad I did.... More

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.

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

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 ! !.

We waited 20mins every time we need service. UNSKILLED AND UNPROFESSIONAL MANAGER (Yvonne), she asked us "is that it?" When we express that service was poor.... More
