This one has been here apparently since the 50's, run by a family originally from the Michoacán area of Mexico. My steak fajitas were very good, with well-seasoned meat. The vegetables could have had a bit more variety (onion, tomato, green pepper); my wife's veggie fajitas suffered the same fate. The fajita plates here do not come on a sizzling... More

It's the place to go when you are craving good Mexican food. The homemade guacamole is awesome, and the food is incredibly fresh. The dessert selection is also great, and the service is impeccable.

Was visiting LBC and needed something to grab. Decided to try them out based on being rated well. Wasn't disappointed. We all enjoyed our food. The chips and salsa are unique and awesome. I'd deff go back.

I've loved Super Mex for four decades. The food is traditional and wonderfully tasty, the margaritas are effective and delicious, service is great and friendly. A neighborhood hangout that's great for tourists too, Super Mex downtown is the original and still the best!

If you are around Long Beach area, this is a MUST diner restaurant that should not be missed out. You will sing "I'm in heaven" while dining there. Absolutely one of the best food we've ever had with reasonable prices and ever smiling staff.

Sometimes you just want a good Mexican meal in a friendly place for a decent price. This was it for me. Cheap, cheerful, decent salsa, fun mural, great location with easy parking. And the food was great. Just what I wanted.

I grew up in Texas and So Cal so I love good Mexican food. Unfortunately there's not much of it in Tallahassee. So it's a treat to try places out when traveling. Went within two friends and it was worth the walk. The cheese and onion enchiladas was prepared well and very tasty. The chile relleno was outstanding! And the... More

Now serving margaritas! Yay! The front patio remodel will soon be completed that will give it an open-air dining area. Food is good, kitchen is fast. It's a local favorite!

Had dinner here last month with 3 friends and had a nice evening of friendly service and satisfying food...I notice the cops eating there so it must be ok....We had a variety of things and it was all hot and tasty. The waiter even remembered my friends from living across from the restaurant 14 years ago...good value for your dollar!!
