This is the very small off-shoot of the Mijares in Pasadena. Ok food and little ambiance. Only beer and wine so no "George's Special" margarita's - too bad!

Mijares is one of those "go-to" places for consistently good Mexican food. The place is always clean and the staff is friendly. The lunch specials are always a bargain.

This is a small place up on Washington St. I have had several things here and liked them all. One mile north of the 210 on Allen. Not a tourist stop, but a very nice place to eat.
