Poquito Mas is the place for fresh Mex in LA. Hands down. No competition. I like the original location on West Cahuenga the best. Been eating there for over thirty years. Quality, taste, service... you know you want some now! Get the Tacos San Felipe for real Baja experience.

This Poquito Mas is located in a small, corner shopping center with not nearly enough parking, depending on what time you go. The food is the standard taco/burrito/tostada with rice & beans fare that you would expect from any Mexican fast-food chain. The prices are quite reasonable, but there are usually not enough seats inside the restaurant to accommodate the... More

The only good thing about this place is the tortillas. Everything else is lacking flavor. Parking is a pain.

Popped in here this week for a late lunch takeaway, with my eldest brother. I ordered the large Shrimp Burrito San Felipe - Broiled shrimp with melted Jack cheese, rice, cilantro, onion, fresh salsa, and fresh guacamole. It was huge, but very tasty, with excellent tasting Shrimps. The only negative is that I think it's priced rather high for what... More

This is one of the better Mexican food chains in the Los Angeles area. It's a bit pricey but the food is delicious and good quality.

This was the best Mexican place around until they changed the menu and the way they do things. Now it s_cks! We gave it two tries after the changes and can't be bothered giving it a shot at a 3rd strike. It's a shame as this was one of our favorite go to's- at least 4 times a month.
