I have lived in Pasadena for 16 years and this was my first visit. We decided to dine here as part of our support to local businesses. They were only open for carry out but we didn’t mind. We were greeted by the owner and...had friendly conversation while our food was prepared. I got black bean soup and Kathy’s salad. My husband got the cowboy burrito. Everything was delicious and portions were a good size. We were given complementary chips and salsa. Will definitely be back!More

Have often driven by but never explored. Really happy we did. The shrimp appetizer was fantastic. I went with the special of the day. A steak dish. FANTASTIC. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. The other option we chose was a burrito. Very well done. Nice flavor...and presentation. Dessert was fried ice cream! The staff was well informed and helpful. The actual seating could use an update. The food is well worth the visitMore

I’m a local, and I have driven past Lista’s many times, but never stopped. Today I was with my husband and other assorted family members, fishing. After fishing we decided to try Lista’s. There were 6 adults a 4 year old, and a 2 week...old. We were seated quickly, and everyone was friendly, and efficient. All of our orders were correct, and we never had to ask twice for anything. The food was delicious. It has a lot of TexMex inspired dishes on the menu. I have to say, the burrito I had for dinner tasted better than all the TexMex and Mexican restaurants in the area. Now that I know how good they are, I will definitely add them to my list of good eats. My only regret is that I didn’t try Lista’s years ago.More

The food is always fresh and made to order. We had a large group and it was no problem. We were handled with care. The hosts could not be more welcoming.
