First time here, have heard many good things about this place. Very good breakfast/brunch place. Huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, and other plates ordered all were good. Salsas had good flavor, chips fresh. Margaritas were good. Had a restaurant area, and another side area to accommodate large groups

We were staying nearby in Rosemead, and we asked at the hotel desk for a recommendation for a "family style" Mexican restaurant. The recommendation was for us to drive "7 minutes" to Ordonez, and it was absolutely great. The family style atmosphere was delightful, and the food was delicious. We went on Tuesday and I had the Tuesday Tacos special... More

I was staying in the area and this family Mexican restaurant was highly recommended. I wasn't impressed although it is very popular and the place was full. You check yourself in and get a table. One waiter seems to handle the whole place so although he does a great job, everything is when he is available. Food was nothing special... More

Went to Ordonez for the first time for a graduation celebration. Our group of 10 was seated without any problem and the service was great. I thoroughly enjoyed a Cerviche Tostada and all of the other meals looked equally as delicious as mine was. The wait staff were courteous and efficient and our lunch visit was a great experience. I... More

So it's Montebello, you have East LA next door so the Mexican food game is a tough one to compete in. You have to stand out to be excellent. This place has a HUGE plus side that you can get a sit down meal 24 hours a day. You won't find hot chocolate at this restaurant but I will say... More

I was actually headed out to a different restaurant because earlier when I drove by Ordonez (I'm traveling here in Montebello on business and Ordonez is very close to the hotel) it looked like it was closed. But as I was headed to a more distant place, I saw the neon "Open" sign and stopped. Am I glad I did.... More

The only good thing about Ordonez is they are open 24/7. The food is not very good but it is edible. The service is not very pleasant and the place needs a remodel. Considering how much business they do, they should upgrade all the restaurants they own in town

Classic flavors, generously served, priced well. Perfect evening meal, though they serve Breakfast and Lunch as well. Never had a chance to get back there for them.

We went here for Cinco De Mayo. The happy hour prices were good but I was less impressed by the food and service.

Live within a few blocks and have eaten there many times. Over the years, there has been a steady decline. Good for late nite meals on weekends but the service is terrible! Quality of the food has been a steady decline.
