When my friend and I came into this restaurant, there were two larger parties of about eight. I expected our service would be a little slower because of this but what I didn't expect was to have to beg for service. It took literally ten minutes just to get the server to take our order - a tostada and a... More

Their cheese enchiladas are a favorite as well as the El Mojo. They will make you a veggie taco if you request it. I get that often. The service... More

On Colorado Blvd in Pasadena near movie theaters and book store lies a great Mexican restaurant that is reasonably priced. The tortilla chips and salsa are a great start to the meal. All the items are freshly prepared. The service is also quite good though it can get busy during "happy hour".

Food, service and quality are outstanding. This place is a favorite local restaurant and always seems to be busy. The food is authentic and the staff are always nice, sincere and go out of their way to please their guests.

I just had this for lunch on Sunday, with a restaurant.com voucher, so we didn't have to pay so much. This was my first time to this location, having gone to LFG in South Pas a few more times since it is close to home. Anyway, I had the mole, and it was all right, but I don't think I... More

Chicken enchilada (one or two) with rich, dark mole for super affordable. Good horchata (free refills???) and great for families. Second visit; still remember it from over 5 years ago, that's how good it is.
