I heard about this place and finally drove 30 minutes to try the tortas. La Diabla torta with grilled chicken, jalapenos, chile de arbol, habanero guacamole, grilled cheese, black beans was sooo spicy you cannot taste anything. BBQ pulled pork torta was good, but had too much bbq sauce. The potato salad had too much mustard, but the macaroni salad... More

Visited today at 11AM just before the lunch crowd. Ordered #10 Ahogado, #26 California and #666 LaDiabla. Ahogado is spicy slow cooked pull pork, really good; LaDiabla is super spicy with habanero paste, California is pretty good, non spicy. Overall, i rate it a 4 star. There is no traditional mexican food here, this is a sandwich place with some... More

Very small place and lunch is always super busy as the tortas are great! Whatever your persuasion might be, you will find a torta to fill your taste buds. The bread is freshly baked, light with a perfect amount of crunch. They also always have two delicious agua frescas to choose from to refreshen your palate. If you dont eat... More

Well my BF and I went here and I ordered the "Bombero" with a side of arroz con Leche and he got the Ranchero with a side of Macaroni Salad. When our food arrived they weren't labeled who's was who and the sides were mixed up. We were enjoying our meal and the mango juice. When we finish our meal... More

Stopped here for late Saturday lunch, still very busy and now I know why. Freshly baked bread with generous fillings. Lots of variety, a few salads, but how could you resist the bread? Only a few tables inside, a few outside, but no shade. It was noisy when we were there, but the service was quick and the employees helpful.... More

Had the lengue sandwich (beef tongue) which is an unusual menu item, but it was excellent. the meat was tender and the bread and vegetables on it were excelllent. Really enjoyed the tabbouleh side - obviously good ingredients. Topped it off with the Strawberry Agua Fresca which was perfect. I go every time I get to Monterey Park

I found this place while driving through Monterey Park. It is not a large place. Dining area maybe seats 20 people. The menu is kind of an eclectic blend of different foods with a Mexican twist. the owners do a decent job of maintaining the quality of the food. They bake their bread fresh each day. The service is awesome... More

The Tortas and the agua frescas are delicious. They aren't the typical Mexican Tortas or aguas frescas but their version on these two items are impressive. I've the asada and chorizo torta (#50... I think?) and it was delicious. It's definitely shareable too I've also had the BBQ chicken salad. Huge portion and flavorful too. The aguas frescas are all... More
