Jumpin' Place

The food was very good at this lively place. The only knock on this restaurant is that the ambient sound level is rather loud. This makes conversation difficult with anyone who isn't seated adjacent to or across from a diner.

Ortega's is always one of our first thoughts when Mexican food and cold drinks are the day's dining desires. My wife and I often go there on our own or arrange to meet our grown children and grandchildren for a night out. There are spaces for larger parties. The service has always been prompt and friendly. The menu is extensive... More

We were staying in the Best Western which is only 50 yards from the hotel and after a long drive just wanted some where to eat and drink. The place was about 60% full and was the noisy but full of life.... Not the place if you are planning a quite or romantic meal The food arrived promptly and the... More

For years, my mother has insisted that ALL the good restaurants are in my area. While that may be a bit of an exaggeration, last night’s dinner proved that at least one of them is. We were tired, it was nine pm and it seemed like a good night for staying local, so off we went to Ortega 120, a... More

We are regulars at this place! The decor and vibe are awesome, and the 120 actually stands for the 120 different tequilas they offer! Monday night they have all night happy hour, it includes $20 pitchers of margaritas (no sweet n sour, just fresh squeezed juices) and really great food specials. Off the regular menu we love the street corn,... More

First the "day of the dead" decor was just off putting to me. Not a place for a relaxing meal either. Loads of children there the night we went. So good if you are looking for a place to take small children but we were not. The food was good, solid Mexican fare but not great. The service was efficient... More

I had heard many good things about ortega 120 but never had the desire to go because of the location and the parking situation. Well that was a mistake. We were invited by friends that frequent the establishment regularly and swore by the ambience the food and cocktails. They were right. The decor was great our server was friendly and... More

Loved this restaurant! The food was very authentic tasting and delicious. The waiter had a smile on his face the entire time and was very helpful with suggestions and help. If I lived locally, this would be a regular restaurant that I would frequent. If you are a traveller to the area, do yourself a favor and pop in some... More

My husband and I were staying at Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes for vacation. We wanted to try some other restaurants in the area, and after doing a little online searching, stumbled upon this restaurant in the reviews. We decided to give it a shot and drove over to Redondo Beach. We had lunch there - and were happy... More
