After many years as super mex and then armandos this restaurant has closed its doors. The husband who owned a few divorced and his wife got the name and there are now super mex's in Orange County. They offer a green Spanish rice.

If you like Mexican food , you need to go. The food tastes like my late husbands and they use the same spices.

Good food. Good staff. Nothing fancy, but we had a good time. Staff helpful, and suggested good items to eat. Owner/manager even brought us out free Tequila shots when we were done. Nice touch.

Was recommended by the hotel across the street. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much since it was out of place in the middle of all the Chinese restaurants but I needed my taco fix. Salsa was incredible - obviously house made. Beers were $2 during happy...More
