My friend and I were trying to find a cheap place to eat in the area and decided on El Abajeño (after seeing its good reviews and convenient location). Admittedly, when we first arrived, we were a little apprehensive; El Abajeño is on the corner...More

I was recommended to come to this place because my friend said that the burritos are "huge". With a bit of doubt but the desire for great food, my son and I drove out here from Perris, CA. OMG! They were so right! This burrito...More

My husband and I took note of the recommendations of other reviewers and got the tostada. I'm glad we did as El Abajeno piles on authentic Mexican goodness with amazing jalapenos all served on fresh tortilla chips. A lot of food for a great price.

A favorite place for locals, this is authentic Mexican food on the cheap. Cafeteria style, usually a line, it's worth the inconvenience. Great Mexican breakfast including Huevos Rancheros and Huevos Machaca. Much better tacos than Tito's for the same price, maybe cheaper.
