My first visit to a Super Mex in 20 years and this chain has turned into the typical imitation Mexican food place..

The food is good but closer to the Americanized taste. We stop by once in a great while because it's close to home,

So the hard shell shredded beef tacos are pretty darned good here. Very much like the ones at the old El Taco Patio in Artesia on Norwalk Blvd. (Our family REALLY misses that place!!) My family also are fans of the chicken enchiladas at Super Mex. Portion sizes I've noticed are inconsistent when dining in. Rice and beans are cheap,... More

Always good food at reasonable prices. Not fancy, likely busy, but you can get in and out fairly quickly. Bean and cheese burrito is cheap, yummy and giant. Salsa is always great, but their chips aren't my favorite. Also, I've done party orders and a good way to feed large groups.

Great for takeout, but call ahead to avoid the wait. Food is more expensive than other restaurants, bit you get what you pay for. The food quality shows. Carnita's, Chile Verde, and Carne Asada are my favorites.

Who says Mexican food has to be greasy, full of carbs and just plain unhealthy? If you want HEALTHY Mexicanfood try the Steak Adobo taco salad at SuperMex! I split it with my husband since there's enough beef steak for both of us on a bed of beans, rice and fresh lettuce. It's topped with your choice of sour cream... More

They don't have the things I enjoy the most in Mexican cuisine. It's okay now and then. But, to me it's just average. But, they are always busy and most folks in town enjoy their food. It's also very crowded and very loud. Note: I live about a mile from this restaurant.

busy, sometimes noisy, but lively and interesting people watching. Dress is very casual and the beers are cold.

We recently have placed pick up orders. Their Carnitas combo and wet burritos are the bomb. Their food and service is always been great. It's our first choice when craving mexican food.
