You’ll know where Cielito Lindo is by the constant line out front. Excellent food, very reasonably priced and served very fast! We shared a spinach tamale and a chile relleno. Both were very good, not greasy and full of flavor. No beer is served here....I’ll be back for their world famous LA taquitos!More
We ordered delicious fare and drinks and took our seats to await the goodies. They arrived without delay and we enjoyed the flavoursome offerings.
It’s a charming little outlet, hugely popular with takeaways and eating in-house.
I've been eating here since my first visit to Olvera Street as a little kid. And I still stop by whenever I'm downtown. The sauce...ahh...I could drink it by the gallon!
Tony B loved this place, too. I remember him every time I visit now.
We were in the area for a function and when it was done strolled over to Olvera Street with the goal of trying Cielito Lindo’s famous taquitos with avocado sauce. Though a Sunday with Day of the Dead celebrations going on, the long line moved...fast and we scored two seats in the tiny dining area. Many others were spread out on Olvera Street eating their taquitos while standing. Seating is an issue. The taquitos were perfectly done — not too soft and not too hard. The avocado sauce was on the thin side, almost like a green tomatillo sauce, but tasty. Tasty enough that I tipped up my paper tray to drink what was left. The sauce had a little bit of a spiciness to it.More
I dragged my partner here after reading reviews and the high recommendation on the suggested self walking tour of the area around Union Station. Wow. What an absolute disappointment. Despite the self congratulatory World Famous on the menu board I wasn’t prepared for the tasteless,...stodgy, hard taquitos and the watery avocado sauce. Although everyone around us seemed to enjoy the food I felt it was a case of the emperors new clothes and the tradition outweighed the product. I am so surprised by the other comments here suggesting it’s great. I found it anything but.More
This is a must stop site at Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles. It’s just a little hole in the wall that sits on the corner entrance to the oldest street in Los Angeles and offers a very small menu of Mexican food items, but...it is well known in Southern California for its tasty taquitos served in a superb avocado sauce with a side of delicious beans topped with melted cheese. There is seating on both sides of the take-out counter, but since this is a very popular eatery you might have to search for seating elsewhere in the area. There is a pay-to-park lot on the corner too, but this lot can also fill up fast.More
If you are ordering taquitos then you should have no problem. They are made with corn tortillas, shredded meat and a avocado based sauce. This is what they are famous for. Anything else you can ask if there is any flour... More
