Unique and Tasty Mexican Food!

Dinner with friends who took us here on recent trip to the South Bay. We really enjoy Mexican food, this place has a unique menu. Had the blackened chicken enchiladas. Tasty, fresh.

The place is relatively small, and always busy. It has a lot of regulars, and many people eating there know each other and the staff. The food is very good. It has many non-traditional dishes, so be prepared to have some excellent food that you probably have never had before. Highly recommended

This is a great Mexican restaurant in the southbay. Service is always great, super tasty cocktails, and yummy food! I am obsessed with their queso starter. Where I grew up, creamy cheesy queso was standard at all Mexican restaurants, not that weird chorizo stuff that so many SoCal restaurants serve where the cheese is hard after like 1 minute. This...

The decor and wait staff were great. The chips were nice and hot but the salsa is just a thin sauce, but it has a nice flavor. I ordered chili verde in a burrito and it was just okay. The sauce was not authentic and tasted like something I could get in a can at Ralph's. My friend ordered enchiladas,... More

Charming place in south Redondo Beach, which has some typical gourmet Mexican dishes, along with one that is not found in many other places: sweet corn ravioli in an anejo sauce. This is a 'must-try', and I highly recommend it.

This is Mexican food with a real twist. My favorite is the Mexican lasagna. It's lasagna noodles with Mexican flavors. The quesedillas have Brie. Such clever deviations from the traditional. It's hard to choose.

Cozy place with solid food that checks all the right boxes for comfort, casual and cost. No culinary surprises, but who cares. It works. Only consideration is it's not a large place so may want to plan ahead with bigger group. That said, never had a problem getting seated for two on a weekend.

I understand that the happy hour is good but there was no room at the bar to partake. HH is at bar only and its a super small area. Food wasn't bad. Would do Taco Tuesday again but not certain on other dinner items

So this place has some out of this world food, but only, and I repeat ONLY if you order something out of the ordinary. Yes, you can go and order your typical burrito, taco or enchilada and it will be acceptable, but may seem overpriced for what you get. Where this place shines is the unique dishes like the sweet...
