I have wanting to try this place for quite awhile now, so tonight was the night. The rice & beans were yummy. I placed my order of a super tostada without lettuce and the waitress is bilingual so I know she understood, but when my food came it had tons of lettuce. I was just going to accept it and... More

Looks like a to go type place from the outside so we went in for some tacos. Menu is priced like a restaurant, though and the tiny little place has a few tables inside and out. Food was fresh and delicious. I ordered three crispy shredded beef tacos thinking street taco size and at 2.75 each they were enormous. I... More

I love the menu at La Adelitas. Not the typical tacos and burritos. I love going there for breakfast. They have really great chillliquitas but what is great is they offer them witht either red or green chili. I always order the green. But if we go in for lunch or dinner I like their spinach and cheese enchilads. Tiny... More

It was getting a bit late for us for dinner and we stopped in because we had our hearts set on Mexican food. I had a carne asada tostada and my friend had chicken enchiladas. Neither dish was more than average. Everything was a bit on the bland side. I am sure there must be better Mexican restaurants in the... More

OK, the staff is great, but the food doesn't stand out. Don't get me wrong, it is tasty - just not unique. I think they could spice up the salsa, as well as cheese on the entrees and kick the flavor up a notch. I think then the food would stand out.

I'd say it is really more of a 3.5, with the food being a little less than 3.5, but still good, and the staff being a 5+. Food is fine, but does not stand out in LA for Mexican. They don't make their own tortillas and their salsas don't have much kick, but they taste pretty well. The staff is... More
