Came in thinking okay it's just another mexician restaurant but was very surprised. Had shrimp a large Veracruz. Dish had several large fresh shrimp with a fabulous sauce. Can be made extra spicy too. Second dish was carnitas with killer refried beans and other fixings. Chips and salsa served as you sit down were excellent. Margaritas are just plain good.

A trip to South Pasadena on a Sunday Afternoon lead me to the newest Mexican restaurant. The space was much brighter then the old one on Colorado. and the family diners seemed please to have a restaurant open on a Sunday on their main street.

This restaurant is currently closed. There is a sister restaurant in SOuth Pas, and while the food is the same, the margaritas are not, the ones from Colorado were much better. What we especially like are the marinated meats in the fajitas and fajita tostada.

This excellent, relaxed Mexican restaurant is one of my favorites. It has a relaxed atmosphere and reasonable prices. I particularly like their burritos. Although located on Colorado Blvd. in downtown Pasadena, the parking is usually pretty easy because there is a parking lot at the back.

The staff is very friendly which makes the service great. This is a place the locals go and get real mexican food. The food is good and you get your food fast.

Old school restaurant since 1974. The last day of business will be 30DEC2015 when this restaurant will close forever, the SoPas location will still be in operation. We ordered the 3 item combo which came with rice and beans, we shared this plate since we were not starving. The food was very good and flavorful but it needed more hot... More

I highly recommend this restaurant. We have gone here for more than 20 years and it is still one of our favorite restaurants. You can get a $25 certificate for this restaurant on Reataurant.com. You won't be disappointed!

Right on Colorado Blvd in downtown Pasadena. The margaritas are tasty, the guacamole made fresh. Try the Mole, it's great!

We went here for dinner before attending a performance at the Pasadena Playhouse. (It's right around the corner!) I was a bit concerned about the service because it was mentioned in other reviews but our server took good care of us. The food was good but nothing outstanding.

Thank Sid k
