Yummy, No-frills Mexican Food.

Right across from Seal Beach. This place is great for a good, quick, no-frills meal. Nothing fancy, but we really enjoyed the food. We were in town visiting family and came back a second time the next day to have lunch again. Good view of the beach and pier and a relaxed atmosphere. No dressing up... read more

Well, my wife, a long time customer, walks in to get her traditional soda likes she does every week during the SB concerts. The guys inside let her buy a quick soda while folks are ordering the food. Today, a very unpleasant female employee told her to get at the back of the line and she wasn't very nice about... More

For some reason, I am magically drawn to eat here after surfing. Again and again. Great food and great people!

The food is great and inexpensive but the family who run the restaurant can be positively nasty. I am a local and have come here for years. I love the rice and beans and chicken tacos. I also love the shrimp burritos. The mother who owns the restaurant never hesitates to yell at the guest's children and her daughter had... More

Authentic food...a little pricey...no debit or credit cards accepted. CASH only. There is however an ATM machine on site. BEWARE...there is a disclosed fee which is reasonable of $2.50, HOWEVER when I checked my statement online, I noticed El Burrito Jr. puts themselves down for an additional, undisclosed fee for an additional $2.00.

This place has it all! Great Mexican food with the best of both worlds of take out or sit down. Right on the beach makes it perfect for the swimmer or surfer who wants a quick bite and they have a walk up window if the no shirt no shoes thing applies. Come in and sit down for a great... More

This is not a spot for gourmet dining. The dining room has zero ambience and is noisy with uncomfortable seating. This IS a great place to come when you're feeding a crowd or are in a cost-saving frame of mind. Think of it as simple Mexican comfort food, served in generous portions at low prices. Tasty and filling. We often... More

Always stop by for a bite when visiting Seal Beach. The huge chips are unique, the salsa is good and the food is delicious.

Really good ceviche, surfer special is good too and the chile relleno. Great service and the price is right. Across the street from the Seal Beach Pier.

This is a very favorite neighborhood joint, in all the good senses of the word. While the word is out to the locals, who line up at the take-out window, maybe the less adventurous, who might be put off by the no-frills setting inside, need to know that this is good Mexican food, like someone's grandma would make.
