The best Mexican food in PV. I used to go to the Red Onion in Redondo back in the day! Really fresh chicken tacos and salsa. The margaritas are top notch as well.

Unless you're willing to wait an hour or two for a table, make reservations. The menu is quite varied with some dishes I've not seen in many Mexican restaurants, Chicken Mole being one of those. We had a table for 7 and tried many different...More
