Located at 1st and Alamitos at the edge of downtown Long Beach, it is a great local restaurant. They serve all the standard Mexican dishes, but outstanding is the cocido, a boiled beef vegetable soup. Starting with a glass of red wine, from the popular...More

We were just passing through Long Beach, and stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant while craving Mexican food. It really hit the spot. Food was delicious with generous portions, and reasonably priced too -- it's everything you could want. What stood out most though...More

This place is the go-to for cheap eats after a day at the beach down the street. Most dishes are less than $10, so if you cut back on alcohol consumption it's a real steal. The amount of food is big, so come with an...More

When I lived in LB this was one of my favorite spots. Came for an overnight visit and this was a must! I had a chicken burrito with a whole wheat tortilla and it was super yummy. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service, as...More

Hard to beat the location about a block from home in downtown Long Beach, but it's the good food that makes Super Mex my "go to" for reliably good Mexican food. From the minute they deliver the home made and still warm chips and salsa...More

I love stopping at Super Mex Jr. and grabbing a daily special on my way home when I work late. It's the perfect dinner, so convenient and at a great price. Plus their salsa is my absolute favorite!

This Mexican restaurant was conveniently located within walking distance to our hotel. We were there on a weekend and they were fairly crowded but we got a table within minutes. My husband and I ordered combo plates to get a variety. Everything was good as...More

This one has been here apparently since the 50's, run by a family originally from the Michoacán area of Mexico. My steak fajitas were very good, with well-seasoned meat. The vegetables could have had a bit more variety (onion, tomato, green pepper); my wife's veggie...More
