This is not a sit down dinner but a little place with snack trays if you'd like to eat there. Your food is prepared when ordered and my friend from California said it was authentic. The prices are reasonable and I got enough food for two meals. Lots of cheese in the quesaedilla.

This sis mostly a take out restaurant with only a couple of indoor and outdoor tables for sit in. The cook was a kind very pleasant grandpa type man by himself but handled our six dinners very efficiently in less than 10 min for take out. All the dinners were delicious with good size portions. Good price. less than $10... More

Ordered four dinners including burritos and tacos and the food was not good. Definitely not authentic Mexican; salad tasted as though it came from a bag and the rest from cans. Sauce tasted like ketchup. This is the kind of place that survives because it is in a beach town with limited choices during the dinner crunch if you don't... More

La Abuelita serves simple and good food with large portions! You order at the counter and the food in packaged in to-go containers. It is very clear from the moment you enter La Abuelita this is NOT a sit down restaurant. Not sure about the authenticity of the food but I do know the food was good and exactly as... More

I've been coming to OC every summer for 10 years to stay in our condo behind this little shopping strip. In previous years this food was AMAZING and was without a doubt a must have on my vacation (especially for late night food/snacks). However, this year I was surprised at the lack of authentic tasting food. We ordered the nachos... More

Nasty, nasty, nasty. Let me repeat - nasty, nasty, nasty. The food was not authentic. Be aware that this is a take out place and not a sit down restaurant. I was ok with that but the food was so awful. We got the nachos which were edible but not good food. We also got the taquito platter and the... More

We are Tequila Mockingbird regulars, but just could not get it together to go out last night. So, we ordered carry out from here. The food was great. I had the flautas, which were amazingly light for mexican food. Crispy, flavorful chicken, perfectly ripe avocado. My husband had a burrito, which he enjoyed as much as I did my food.... More

Great traditional dishes made to order. Yes, that takes time, so if you want Taco Bell, don't come here. We try to stop by here each visit to OC.
