Ever since I was a young girl, my family has been coming to this restaurant for their menudo and other excellent dishes. I remember having to wait for a table when they were in a little "hole in the wall" on Beverly Blvd because it was such a popular place. Then they expanded, and have since moved to a much... More

First time here, have heard many good things about this place. Very good breakfast/brunch place. Huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, and other plates ordered all were good. Salsas had good flavor, chips fresh. Margaritas were good. Had a restaurant area, and another side area to accommodate large groups

We were staying nearby in Rosemead, and we asked at the hotel desk for a recommendation for a "family style" Mexican restaurant. The recommendation was for us to drive "7 minutes" to Ordonez, and it was absolutely great. The family style atmosphere was delightful, and the food was delicious. We went on Tuesday and I had the Tuesday Tacos special... More

I was staying in the area and this family Mexican restaurant was highly recommended. I wasn't impressed although it is very popular and the place was full. You check yourself in and get a table. One waiter seems to handle the whole place so although he does a great job, everything is when he is available. Food was nothing special... More

Went to Ordonez for the first time for a graduation celebration. Our group of 10 was seated without any problem and the service was great. I thoroughly enjoyed a Cerviche Tostada and all of the other meals looked equally as delicious as mine was. The wait staff were courteous and efficient and our lunch visit was a great experience. I... More

So it's Montebello, you have East LA next door so the Mexican food game is a tough one to compete in. You have to stand out to be excellent. This place has a HUGE plus side that you can get a sit down meal 24 hours a day. You won't find hot chocolate at this restaurant but I will say... More

I was actually headed out to a different restaurant because earlier when I drove by Ordonez (I'm traveling here in Montebello on business and Ordonez is very close to the hotel) it looked like it was closed. But as I was headed to a more distant place, I saw the neon "Open" sign and stopped. Am I glad I did.... More
