Large portions of Southern California Mexican food. Nice waitress and good service. You can eat upstairs on a nice day and look out on things. Close to the beach.

The best part of Southern California dining is the food and food places are authentic Mexican diner. So even though El Gringo is a small chain the food is very good. Good for quick meals or just getting tacos or burritos. Good size portions, reasonable...More
