My husband and I spent a couple of hours touring the nearby Mission San Gabriel Arcangel one afternoon in late August. Filled with history, we were in the mood for some good Mexican food and a couple of cold cervezas.
Lunas Restaurant didn't disappoint. They say you can tell if the food is going to be good by sampling the Salsa. This has turned out to be true. Chips came with two choices, mild or hot. Go for the hot salsa and a cold Corona (or two). The salsa was chunky, fresh and flavorful. That meant the food would be the same.
We both ordered the fish tacos. Nice pieces of grilled fish, shredded cabbage and soft corn tortillas, served with rice and black beans with melted cheese. Plates were hot. We also ordered the Avocado Enchiladas, which were excellent.
This is a family-owned, casual place in a perfect location. Within a block of the Mission and nearby San Gabriel Mission playhouse. Across from the restaurant is a quaint park with a huge and ancient grapevine, still bearing fruit. Our only complaint was that it was HOT. Late August. Ceiling fans and an upgrade to the air-conditioning would be welcome.
