This restaurant has been around a while but went there until this week. Easy parking, nice ambience (a little loud) and a great Happy Hour all night in the bar on Mondays! HH food was good a reasonably priced. The margaritas looked tasty. They pour the alcohol in the drink in front of you. I wish I could say perfect... More

We stopped in an hour before they closed and had to track down someone to seat us since no one was either at the door or bar. The food was great when it arrived. The Mole Pollo was perfect. The burrito wss just as good. We sat eating and watching the staff yakking with their friends or regulars. We were... More

We recently tried this hidden gem on the recommendation of a friend. We started with the standard margarita (pitcher) complete with the "shut up" (a carafe of tequila that is added to the mix of orange juice and lime). This was followed by the chips and delicious quest fundido. I had the tour de taco served on homemade corn tortillas... More

This restaurant was very close to our hotel and we initially avoided it as it looked like one of those "themed" chain-style restaurants (visions of the interior being plastered with Frida Kahlo-esque imagery). One night, however, we were feeling lazy and caved. The hostess was rather surly and almost caused us to change our mind, but thankfully everyone else was... More

The guacamole was the best we've every had. I had the short rib enchiladas and Robert had the short ribs. Both awesome. Will come again next time I'm in LA

We went there for lunch and ordered one of there $10 luncheons, which they have several to choose from. I had the tacos which came with three small tacos, chicken, beef and pork along with rice and beans. They have large chips with good salsa dip. One detraction was the loud Mexican music being blared out over the speaker system.... More

We went to Ortega 120 with a party of 10. That put us at a long table with benches. The table was sort of rustic, with cracks that held crumbs from who knows how many other customers. The food was OK. The service was lackluster . . . delivering incorrect dishes and disappearing when needed. I would not say don't... More

We went to Ortega 120 because it was right near our hotel and we had read some good reviews. We were not disappointed. The food (including the delicious, zingy salsa and chips) and the margaritas were great. There was a very talented group of musicians who performed in the restaurant while we were there. Great place.

Had originally planned to go to another mexican restaurant down the street but was told by a local to try Ortega 120 . This place made me think I was really in Mexico by the decor . With 120 different tequilas to choose from the margaritas were superb and the food was incredible. Best homemade chip and salsa to boot... More

I love Ortega 120! I find myself here on a weekly basis! They have all night happy hour on Monday night and excellent margaritas. Another great menu item we have to always get the street corn! They even have 120 excellent tequilas hence the name. My husband and I had our engagement party here 2 years ago so it's good... More
