I found this place wonderfully unique compared to so many others. The decor was very much central Mexico with Mexican painters and skeleton paintings everywhere. And the wall of crucifixes to was a nice touch. The food was simple yet well done with the elotes well prepared and the carnitas tender and tasty. The star of the night are the... More

The menu has some interesting items. I wasn't in the mood for mole, but they did have it. I ended up with a house burrito because it allows me to compare to other Mexican places more easily.

This was the best drink I ever had - the "Paloma" - tequila with grapefruit juice and squirt soda. My husband had a strawberry margarita which he really liked.

Great looking restaurant and fantastic food. Tasty spicy salsa, soild guacamole and bold complex chicken mole enchiladas. Did I mention the poke taco appetizer? Normally I shy away from anything that is not authentic, but this variation on the taco was phenomenal.

I discovered this place when we were looking for a new place for brunch. I was amazed at the quality of food - delicious!! the service is top notch and the Mango Margaritas( yes, you can get them by the pitcher) were the best. Sunday Brunch is amazing and the brussell sprouts are the best I've ever tasted. Well Done!!!

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.
