When we moved from this area this was the place we missed the most. Great Mexican food at great prices from a very small store front.

I've liked this place for years because of the good, basic stuff available to take home--burritos, tacos, enchiladas, guac and chips, etc. Has an assortment of Mexican soft drinks and beer. There are plenty of other Mexican food emporiums in the area, but Las Golondrinas is a habit that is hard to shake, once you find the place in its... More

Unless you are from the area, Las Golondrinas is super hard to find; tucked away in a business park, that looks like multiple apartment buildings. Certainly not even close to great Mexican food. Not the worst either. Biggest complaint is the prices do not match the quality of the food. I'm not a fan of finely chopped steak or carne... More

Steak taco was great! Love fresh salas and guacamole they make. But Taqitos was worst than bad. Greasy and oil tasted old. Outside sitting is filthy. Highly recommend take out only.

Glad there's one within a couple of miles of my house because there are times that I absolutely crave Las Golondrinas. Having gone to college in Santa Barbara, I have to say Freebirds makes burritos better than LG (for me, it's the sauce), but LG makes good ones, too. I also love the chicken or beef quesadillas. Messy, and your... More

Fresh, tasty, cheap, friendly! Take-out food California style. Try the Super Veggie burrito (it's enormous), the chicken taquitos (with guacamole of course). A South Orange County staple for decades.

We've been going to Las Golondrinas for years. This is a local place for us. We usually get our food to go, as there is no place to sit inside. There are however, a few small tables and chairs outside in front if you want to eat there. The food is real traditional Mexican food. We love the pork carnitas,... More

When traveling from our home in New Jersey to California, we always plan our meals (and often what we'll order) in advance. And, Las Golondrinas is always on our list. Having traveled to Mexico many times, we know what good Mexican food is supposed to taste like, and Las Golondrinas is the real stuff, prepared by Mexicans who know what... More

You can tell the place is popular with the locals based upon the line out the door at lunch and after work. All of their food is great! It's authentic, Mexican food at it's freshest and finest! I love the carnitas and often buy it by the pound, Their tortillas are made fresh daily as are the chips. Their guacamole... More
