We love coming here for the salsa and chips. The food, guacamole and horchata is just ok. Not really a good place to have Mexican food overall. Free parking and you can go to shop at Ross or CVS afterwards if you want to walk it off.

This little hole-In-the-wall Mexican Restaurant is one of our favorite places. We love their Chile Rellenos because they are not battered & deep fried but the chile is filled with cheese, then wrapped in a something like a very thin egg omelet and covered with a wonderful red sauce. As a diabetic, I don't feel as guilty eating this Chile... More

We have gone here everytime we visit our daughter in Redondo Beach. Great atmosphere, inside or out on patio. Attentive wait staff, great food and drink. Chip and sausa to start out and full menue. You will enjoy, the a short distance to the beach to walk it off.

This is a good, old-fashioned, walk-through-the-kitchen-to-get-to-the-bathroom Mexican-American restaurant. I love that! Big plates, all the standard menu items, a little greasy, great service. My favorite Mexican beers. I'm always happy after eating here, but go with people you want to talk to or a book if you're by yourself because there's nothing to look at.

not a fancy place. It has unique character. The food was really good. Very tasty. My wife ordered the Jr Chicken Burrito. This thing was huge. If that was a Jr, I wonder what the regular one would look like. I would go back again if I was in the neighbourhood.

This restaurant has great margaritas and food, but our evening was spoiled by the fact that dogs are allowed to join the outdoor eaters, and people somehow think it is fine to bring their dogs to dinner. If we wanted to eat with dogs, we would take our food to the pet store and eat there. Tip to management: get... More

I violated the rule of "never eat anything bigger than your head" at Mexican Riviera. The special burrito is humungous, but so good that it disappeared from my plate. The other six folks at our table seemed similarly happy with their meals, but we were so busy eating that there wasn't much talking. Every table in the place was filled,... More
