“Great Eats”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We stopped in there for a snack. Please ask for Maria when being seated. She was a great waitress. The tostado was the best I had ever tasted!. Maria was vety attentive and kept us stocked up on chips and salsa.

“Mediocre Mexican Fare”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

OK for a Mexican restaurant. If you are from the Midwest, it's probably a novelty If you are from Southern Califonia, it's just another Mexican restaurant. No big deal.

“So So food, great service”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

The service here was fast, efficient & friendly. The food was just your basic Mexican fare, nothing special to write home about. It does have a nice little outside patio, but it is on a side street so nothing much to look at...except people watching!

“Mediocre for Mexican Food”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We have been going to this Avalon Eatery when all else is closed and we have no other options. My husband favors Mexican food to all other burger or pizza options out there. This place serves basic food; one I can make myself--; not being Mexican. There is no flavors that make it authentic. Basically you eat their food because you are hungry and there is nothing else open. They only offer iceberg lettuce on tostadas. Their rice and beans are bland; they do give you generous portions though so you are filled. We are going to try and stay away from this eatery. The guilt of putting the calories in without flavors is too much. The surprise is that they actually have a Trip Advisor sign out front which gives then four circles filled!
