“Small Place, Outstanding Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

There's this little place in Monterey Park, CA called Mexicatessen which serves, I think, some of the best Mexican fast food I have eaten. I grew up in Monterey Park, but now live in Sacramento, and every time I come to LA (at least three or four times a year), I make it a point to eat at Mexicatessen. What is so good about this place? The beef enchilada (shredded beef with a deeply flavored enchilada sauce) is outstanding. The tostadas are great, and the crispy tacos are something I always look forward to. Try anything on the menu. It will be good. The counter person is always very friendly and greets everyone with a smile. If you are looking for a fancy Mexican restaurant with inside seating and table cloths, this is not for you. If, however, you are interested in outstanding food in a fast food setting, this is the place!
