I've been coming here for 15 years now. Everytime I'm in Orange County I have to come to Flamingos. The food is always consistantly great - at least the way I like my Mexican food. We have one waiter that we like to ask for as he's watched the kids grow up and is so friendly and outgoing. You can... More

We like Flamingos for a good weeknight meal. Taco Tuesdays is very often crowded but good deals on tacos. I've had the burritos and enchiladas as well and they are all very good. You have a choice of sitting in the bar which can get noisy or they also have a quieter seating area. This is our "go-to" Mexican restaurant... More

Had a great Mexican dinner with one margarita. This restaurant is somewhat hidden. Located o MacIntyre St. off La Paz Road. It is up the hill from I-5 a long block and then a left turn going to the end of the shopping center on the left side of the street. Good for and worth trying.

My kids split an order of beef fajitas and it was like digging for gold under the onions and peppers but the beef was great, fresh, and came out sizzling. I asked for 2 orders of rice and 1 whole cut advocado and the waiter did not understand me even after the food came so I just skipped it. I... More

Hidden in a small shopping center, this place serves good Mexican food and generous Margaritas. While it's not exotic or original, it is more than decent and reasonably priced. Among their more interesting appetizers are "crisps". These are crispy flour tortillas with great toppings. They're perfect when you're not starved but want a nice snack with your beer.

It has been two years since my first review for Flamingos. This place is plummeting in service and food quality! I have returned only a handful of times as I live 10 miles away and there are far better Mexican eateries in my area! I usually meet a few friends there as it is "halfway" for us. The last few...

Good, fast service, and great food! Love the salsa!! I could eat the food here every night of the week. Tuesdays get really busy though so I don't advise going on these nights unless you plan to wait. Most other nights of the week have specials too. I really enjoy the chicken enchiladas and steak fajitas.

All the dishes are good. Carnitas I love. Burritos are great. Enchiladas great. It's all good. I was impressed to see the owners there when I visit Flamingos - the wife was in the kitchen supervising staff and enduring the quality was up to her standard - that ensures consistency. I think that anyone would be happy with their food... More
