surprisingly bad – I'm sorry to say that this was, hands down, the worst Mexican dinner I've ever had, and I've eaten Mexican food in Ohio! I recently moved to Oakland from San Francisco and am still having trouble finding a good sit down Mexican resaurant that seves Margaritas and Carne Asada diners. That aside this place was really bad. The "salsa" is just chopped up out of season white tomatos, even the beans were bad. I hesitate to sound too negative, but I've had better Mex. food at the Denver airport! Yuck, I was really hungry so I ate it anyway.
La Estrellita seems to be a favorite among locals, and locals know best. i always get the same thing--chicken mole--because you just can't go wrong. it comes smothered in the sauce.
Excellent! Down Home! – We have been going to this place for at least 14 years!
It has always had GREAT food and friendly service and now
it is remodeled with a sunny room with tables and booths.
The food is like the food I remember from my childhood in
East Los Angeles. Delicious and generous portions.
I love the clientele....lots of people from the neighborhood,
families, business type (during lunch), groups of friends,
sports fans (they have a big screen TV; which fits right into
the friendly feel. People come there to eat GREAT food and
have fun! The waitresses feel like family (Family that you
LIKEand that Like you). They know how to handle restless toddlers, sullen teens, indecisive adults,exhuberent sports fans,everyone! If you're into upscale Mexican food please go elsewhere, you may not like the downhome quality here.
We love it!
MUY BIEN – All I can say is EXCELLENT! The food, service, and ambiance were all EXCEllENT!
