This place is a bit off the beaten path for tourists, up in the Wrigley Heights area of long Beach. But it's a short drive up the 710 freeway or a just a couple stations north on the Metro Blue Line from downtown. Though it's just in a nondescript strip mall on a busy intersection, the food is great home-style Mexican and the staff are friendly and helpful. I recommend the carnitas or the chile verde, though everything looked pretty good. I also like the fact that they warned me when my large group arrived that it might take a while to cook up enough sauces for us. It was nice that they were honest, even at the risk of losing business (which they didn't).
