Friendly staff, a great variety of real mexican food, gigantic burrito ! The place is very cool with nice pictures and crosses on wall. A big variety of cocktails and hundreds (!) of tequila types (pretty pricey, some 😨).

We sat at the bar, have some cocktails while watching both college football and the Dodgers. They specialize in foods from Oaxaca. It was some of the best Mexican I have had.

We enjoyed our visit to Ortega 120. The food was great with large portions. We tried a tequila flight - the server helped us select one - and we also enjoyed the margaritas.

Authentic, tasty Mexican food, reasonable prices, friendly service. The place was packed at 6 p.m. on a Saturday night so they are clearly doing something right!

We had high hopes after waiting an hour and a half for a table, however, they serve a nice big basket of chips with a very small dish of salsa. The award winning house margarita was fair at best. The enchiladas had good flavor but the beef was a bit dry. Ortega 120 would be OK for a quick bit... More

We were very happy to find this Mexican Restaurant right within walking distance of our hotel - The Best Western Redondo. There was a bright enclosed patio area in the front but we were unable to be seated there since there was a party scheduled. The inside area was darker but was also very nice as was the bar area...

This was one of those 4:00 p.m. non planned stops on Tuesday. You see, today was one of those days that spontaneous rules! I really do have few of those but they do happen.

You know that it's going to be a great experience when you see someone hand making flour tortillas. I got the tour of tacos and they were wonderful. Each meat on the tacos was tender and flavorful. The margaritas were great. It was decorated with a day of the dead theme.
