The child rellano is outstanding I use to live and work in LA in the entertainment industry and Jimenez can hang with any of those LA restaurants...the fried fish diner is awesome huge and great value really good...the service is very friendly...the two poor reviews should stick to peanut butter sandwiches

We decided to stop by for dinner here on 03/19. It was a little crowded, a short wait to be seated, but once we were seated, service was very good, up to the time we were ready to pay. Portions were large and tasted good. Prices were reasonable, for 3 people before tax and tip was $35.85. The only service... More

Great service, friendly staff. The tacos are awesome, not greasy and filled to the top with delish chicken and fixings. Rice was okay, beans were great. Margaritas were perfect! Chili Burrito was excellent. No complaints whatsoever! Best company in town-my brother! Next time I'm in town I will definitely visit.

One of my favorite entrees is the shrimp salad. The shrimp are large and plentiful. Always requires a to go box. The enchiladas and tacos are very good. However, I do not care for their fish tacos. Dry and tasteless in my opinion. Plenty of good chips and salsa.

It had been a while since coming to this restaurant and I am so sorry I went back. If this is Mexican food, it is only because it looks like it is. Hubby had chicken enchiladas, they were so bland that he had two or three bites and pushed it away. I had flautas and the only reason I could... More

We had eaten here years ago, and found it lacking. However, it has changed hands and actually a pretty good place to eat. Their margaritas are good, and the price was very good. Food is good too, I love Mexican food, so am very fussy. The prices are reasonable also. All in all a good experience. We would return.

Arrived 5:30 on a weekday. We were seated immediately but had to ask for someone to take our orders. Although the menu had their many specialty drinks listed with photos, our marguritas were identical although we did not order the drinks. One of the drinks may have been shorted the liquor. The food was OK. Little things were missed... the... More

We ordered fajitas. The beef was tough and stringy. The chicken was also tough. The flour tortillas were stiff & and moist, but not hot. The meal tasted like it was left-overs and reheated.

Excellent (authentic) Mexican food. The workers are very friendly and the service is great. The food is even better! Great prices and family friendly. I especially love their chicken tacos! They also give you free unlimited chips and salsa at your table. I highly recommend!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch - ordered ala carte chili rellano and tacos. My chicken tacos were perfect, but the chili rellano stole the show. We think it is probably THE. VERY. BEST. CHILI. RELLANO. we've EVER had! The chili was THAT good.
