I must say that this food is absolutely amazing. My favorites are the combos with rice and beans. The food is of great value. This is what I perceive to be authentic mexican food.

This restaurant and it's other in Santa Fe Springs serve some of the best tasting authentic mexican food in the area. The decor is not the best and at times overdecorated for holidays but the food is excellent and the service is very friendly. The best Arroz con Pollo around!

This is our favorite budget restuarant in Downey. Contrary to the listing, there is NO Chinese food served here. Our favorites include the "Big Burittos" (beef or chicken), the fajitas, and the various combo plates. The fish taco mentioned by another reviewer is not a fish stick but is a breaded filet of cod, a style used by many others.... More

And you call that a fish taco; shame on you. Others in the group like some of the food; son said the chile verde was almost inedible.
