melo mexican food, good grub, annoying wait, pretty lively environment, very friendly service, good drinks, delicious fajitas
We just moved to Long Beach, and this was the first place we ate. We weren't disappointed! My boyfriend ordered the Alamo Burrito, which was absolutely massive. He couldn't finish it -- and we can both scarf down Chipotle burritos, no problem, so this is really saying something. If you can't resist ordering it, see about splitting your order. I had the fajitas, which were delicious, too. The guac was good, the service was very friendly, we didn't have to wait at dinner.
My only complaint is about the margaritas. While they're very tasty and definitely not weak, the first half of the cup is froth! By the time you get to the drink, I'd be surprised if there was more than a 1/2 cup of margarita. If they improve that, I'd easily give it a five star rating.
Overall, it was a nice evening out and we plan to be back...we'll just hold off on the margaritas.
One of my favorites. This place serves up huge plates of yummy Mexican food in a pretty lively environment. There's a sweet view and lots of buzz in and around the whole place. Sometimes the wait can be annoying, but with patience comes enough food for leftovers and a good time. Great for casual lunches with old friends.
Great Burritos - Low Prices. When you're in the mood for good Mexican food and you have a hearty appetite, you can satisfy your craving here without spending much. The burritoes are enormous, big enough to share and the taquito appetizer makes a great lunch. The only negative is that the place is very popular and there's usually a wait to be seated at lunchtime. Relax and enjoy the view...it's worth the wait!
