Get the luminarias chicken

I went here for an office event and my coworker ordered for the group. Out of everything I had, the luminarias chicken was the best surprise. I'm pretty sure it's yummy because I still remember it. If I ever go back here, this is what I'd pick again.

I've been going to Luminarias for brunch with my family since I was a kid. The brunch is alway delicious! The have a wide variety of food and a great dessert selection. The bottomless mimosas are also great. The only drawback is the price, it is pricey for a family of four. Even though it is pricey, we will be... More

I have been going here for years and the food is still good! They have stopped the lunch buffet during the week but it is still offered on Saturdays and Sundays. I ordered the combo of chicken enchilada and chicken taco with rice and beans for $12.95. For lunch at a restaurant, I feel this is a great deal...and the... More

Although this place is a little outdated and in need of a renovation, the food and staff are outstanding! Everything from the sushi to the mashed potatoes to the salad and barbecued carne are delicious and outstanding. The bottomless mimosas were great. Our server, Javier, went above and beyond keeping us satisfied. It was our first time there and Javier... More

Have always love to go for Mexican food at least once when visiting LA where I had lived a whole year more than 30 years ago and got attracted to burritos. My sister in law took me to this place where she had attended a wedding reception and was impressed with their Mexican food. We did not make any reservation... More

We were there today for Father's Day. Arrived at 9:30 with reservations. Sat down within 15 minutes. Our waiter did his customary introduction to different stations for food, and we were off. Soon I noticed food running empty. I observed eggs Benedict, Chile Rellenos, enchiladas, chiliquiles and Guacamole run out quickly and taking considerable time to be brought out again.... More
