Holy Guacamole!

Little hole in the wall in a run down strip mall. This is authentic as Mexican food in SoCal will get, homemade Mexican food made in a commercial kitchen! You absolutely have to get guacamole on your food, on the side or just to take home!

Have visited Golondrinas a lot because we live close by, we find the food to be just average, go elsewhere when we want good Mexican food. We don't think the guacamole and chips (always seem overdone and hard) are up to par for this type of restaurant but nevertheless we still go back for the average food, finally don't like... More

My Boyfriend, now Husband has introduced me to this place 15 years ago at their original location in San Juan Capistrano. Over the years, they have expanded their family business locally in Southern Orange County. YES!

I love the carnitas and often buy it by the pound, Their tortillas are made fresh daily as are the chips. Their guacamole is always fresh and full of flavor. Their burritos... More

Nice sized fast food menu. Fresh, tasty and cooked to order. You can never go wrong here. They are the premier chip fryer in this part of the world. take home a large bag of fresh chips. Like I said always good no matter what you order.
