Once seated, an opportunity for a leisurely meal with friends or family. Good, predictable food and drinks. Not a place to seek a new cuisine or creation. Enjoy your favorites, predictably prepared, deliciously delivered.

The Red Onion is the best Mexican restaurant in the South Bay of Los Angeles. The food is excellent as well as the service. This is a very popular restaurant and parking can sometimes be a challenge.

We used to eat here relatively often when we lived nearby, but this was our first time here since we moved 3+ years ago.
