  • *****

    When I want a good, delicious, torta ahogada or carne en su jugo, this is my go to place! Love the micheladas, chilaquiles, menudo and tacos de barbacoa. Is not only the food is the good and friendly service I get when I go with my family. See soon!

  • *****

    I love going to this Mexican resraurant. Ive been a customer for a couple of years and I've always left with a smile on my face. They greet you as you walk in.The waiter's are always so attentive and happy. My food arrives nicely arranged and hot. They go every so often to ask if I need anything. I love their tortas ahogadas, their tacos de papa and their micheladas are the best. I would recommend you give this restaurant a try for yourself before making any judgements. Keep up the great work Tortas Pika

    The food here is so scrumptious!! I can never get enough of their tacos de papa or de barbacoa. I love hanging out here with my friends eating a torta ahogada along with a michelada. The service is great and so is the atmosphere. :)

    Best Tortas Ahogadas in SoCal. They taste just like the authentic Guadalajara Tortas and their sauce is Delightful.

  • *****

    Me and my husband love this place. I always love their coctel de camarones. My husband adores their pork pozole. Went on Tuesday going again today that's how much we love the food here and the customer service they are all so attentive and polite and joyful which is key to run a business joyful employees who love what they do and manifest thru their work. Can't wait to go again today.

    Our first time here and the food was amazing!! Can't wait to come back. The staff was super nice and attentive . Thank you !!

    Food is great definitely worth the drive. I will be coming back soon. I like the music in the background is not loud but you can hear it just perfect to enjoy lunch and still be able to talk with your soulmate. Lol

  • *****

    The Tortas ahogadas here are the real deal! This is coming from someone who’s had them in Guadalajara. I’ve tried a few places but these are favorite!

  • *****

    Very welcoming environment. Really good service & great food. Best horchata I've ever had outside of home. Worth the trip.

  • *****

    Its was great the food was good and the place was clean im definitely coming back soon

  • *****

    I think I've found the burrito of my dreams. Wow, and their red hot sauce is so good. I had the asada burrito. I went with my coworkers, but was legit contemplating if I should take the burrito to some dark corner, and eat it like a savage.

  • *****

    Glad I found this place on Yelp. The place was busy, staff friendly, food delicious. I had the carnes en su jugo, and tacos de barbacoa. Delicious! Want to go back very soon, to try their tortas ahogadas and tacos de canasta. I would definitely recommend this place. Reason for 4 stars, service was a bit slow. All else was great.

  • *****

    Tortas and tacos are delicious love this place and come very often.

  • *****

    Best hidden Mexican spot by far!!! Tastes super homemade! U won't be disappointed! I've had the barbacoa plate and asada burrito and both were BOMB! Nothing beats handmade tortillas

  • *****

    Best torta ahogada ever. The salsa is spicy as f*#& but delicious.

  • *****

    Thw very best tortas aogadas

  • *****

    Very clean very gently with the customer's very excellent service every thing u order is good there

  • *****

    Liked , didn't get hot towel or asked if I wanted to see back. Did like the cut.

  • *****

    It was my first time here and it is Ceci approved. The food was DE-Li-CIOUS... The service was just as great. I had the Burrito Ahogado de carnitas and my husband the Super Almuerzo. We both agreed it was very tasty. The horchata was good too. I highly recommend this spot.

  • *****

    by far the most best torta ahogada in la. Make your way and get two, trust.

  • *****

    Food was good. Staff were very nice and our server did an awesome job

  • *****

    Excellent service! Staff is super nice. Usually no waiting time and the food is delicious. They also give you chips and salsa, major bonus by my standards. You will love it

  • *****

    Really good food, amazing service. They always make sure everything your ordered is in the bag when you take out. Happy hour specials are nice. Love it.

  • *****

    Parking is easy and service is fast. I usually take the tortas to go though on my way home.

    Their torta mixta is delicious with all the sauces. Service is always great. The tortas will be messy but if you like meat and PAN and sauces, well, I don't thin you'll regret it. Taking it to go they pack up all the sauces in different little bags so your torta is fresh when you eat it later. Enjoy!

  • *****

    When you can't go to actual Guadalajara to try these savory spicy treats .. you can count on this restaurant to bring you the authentic flavor to you

  • *****

    I had been looking for a place to eat tortas ahogadas in california and this place did not disappoint. We even had tacos de canasta and they were perfect! Definitely go for a mild sauce and ask for a side of the hot if you're not sure you can handle the hot salsa. This place also has happy hour as well.

  • *****

    As a Tapata by heart, tortas ahogadas are some of my favorite foods. This place nailed it! The bread tasted fresh and the meat was delicious. The tomato sauce based wasn't overly salty, it has a good consistency. Their hot sauce was also very spicy but savory. The reason for 4 stars is their delay in service and cleanliness, their food is 5 star worthy. Their Floors are a bit sticky, as well as shared containers of sauce. Their guacamole, salsa and bean dip is average, but worth ordering. I thought their jericaya was fresh made at the restaurant but it isn't. It's still yummy if you've never had it. Also their cantaritos Are you really get your $8 worth.

  • *****

    Best Tortas ahogada off shrimp ever and the best waiter service given by Rudy very friendly and cordiant with us honestly I have never been attending like he attended us thank u??? Rudy

  • *****

    Las tortas ahogadas estn buensimas. There super spicy so ask for medium or mild if you don't like spicy stuff. Must try.

  • *****

    Dinosaur games Multiplayer on dinosaurgame.io kinda hard but kinda fun

  • *****

  • *****

    Delicious torta ahogada de tinga tacos de barbaco and the aguas frescas de jamaica good customer service and really nice decoration as well makes u feel comfortable

  • *****

    We tried this place out during happy hour and I can say that I was not disappointed at all! The food was great! I read plenty of reviews and they all recommended the tacos de barbacoa so I did and I have to agree they are bomb! And the torta ahogada is super spicy but you can ask for the sauce on the side and just add little by little! Drinks were really good too! Definitely will be coming back.

  • *****

    One of the best Mexican food restaurants in Huntington Park!! Also the service is excellent!

  • *****

    Best tortas and tacos dorados I've had in a really long time and the service was excellent as well!!
    Got there like 15 mins before closing and they still let us in and they brought our food out quick!
    Definitely recommend and will be coming back!!

    I've said it before and I will say it again... delish!!!! We had carne en su jugo, tortas augadas and tacos de Barbacoa. The horchata was authentic and the chips tasted fresh. The salsa options were amazing

  • *****

    Great finding, pleasant surprise, very good authentic and original Mexican Food, the dishes I tried are simply delicious.

    Best "Carne en su Jugo" in town and perfect "Torta Ahogada"

  • *****

    I was to quick to judge on my first visit, my order was in correct. But my sister in law also ordered the catered beef ? and Elpastore it was delicious. Sorry for the one star I give a 4 star and I will be back.

  • *****

    MÉXICO ??
    Eat the World LA review:
    Having recently returned from Jalisco during this day in Huntington Park, there was not much more we missed than carne en su jugo, the most Tapatío of Tapatío dishes. Translating loosely as "meat in its own juices," this stew has all of the juices of the beef it is made with along with those of the added bacon, beans, tomatillo, and the secret spices of each cook.
    °
    The version here, found at a pitstop for drinks on Santa Fe Avenue, was in a place known more for its tortas ahogadas, another gem of Guadalajara. And that drink we stopped for, the jarrito loco, don't miss the chance to have this citrusy tequila creation either, usually served in a handmade clay jug known as a jarrito.
    °
    Unfortunately this was between two other meals and we did not try more, but I cannot wait to get back as the casual place was full of families and looked to make really good food.

  • *****

    Love this place everything is delicious!! And prices are fair! Tacos de barbacoa are delicious, carne en su jugo , torta ahogada everythinggg is amazing! Oh and the all cantaritos are bomb

  • *****

    I went to this place to have some lunch with my mom. Our waitress was super attentive and very nice. Our glass cokes were very cold and delicious! Mom got barbacoa plate (super well served and amazing flavor) comes with handmade tortillas which is a plus ! I got the burrito ahogado which wasn't as spicy as I would've liked but still great! I will definitely be going back

  • *****

    Loved there burrito ahogado. Veeerrryyy spicy

  • *****

    Their sauce is actually spicy. And delicious.

  • *****

    The restaurant is a bit small, but the food is prepared Guadalajara, Jalisco mostly street vendors style. In other words... The food is delicious! They serve super cold Corona tap beer. But their best drink is the "Cantarito". Don't let the location put you off... There's only a few places that are true to the GDL style. This is one of them... You have to try it! You owe it to yourself.

  • *****

    is this the sameone used to b on at bell gardens eastern and florence? if so... y did u move..?

  • *****

    BEST TORTAS IN LA AND HUNTINGTON PARK

  • *****

    Im not its biggest fan but the staff is really quick and nice. Family loves this place

  • *****

    I have eaten here many times, and have never been disappointed. The food is always tasty, and the servers provide very friendly service! Its a nice, warm family atmosphere. I've had caldo de res, torta ahogada with carnitas, torta ahogada with shrimp, torta en telera with pastor, menudo, tacos de barbacoa, burritos, tacos canasta, soup of the week, and a few other dishes. The food has been great! No complaints what so ever! The price is right too!

    Make sure you try the horchata....its da bomb!

  • *****

    Very good food, awesome service.

  • *****

    Best tortas de carnitas in L.A area

  • *****

    Food was okay. I ordered the torta ahogada which this place says they specialize in. The sauce really wasn't what I expected. I expected more flavor. They also had Tejunio listed as a drink option. I tried ordering it and said it wasnt available ?. The guacamole was good and fresh.

  • *****

    The best! Go with time to spare or call in the order. You need time to enjoy and savor the delicious food and time to wait as it's busy during lunch time. Definitely worth your time and money. Definitely do your self a favor and try this place.

  • *****

    I love this place is delicious, even though there service is a little slow is worth the wait.

  • *****

    Food is really good specially tortas ahogadas, only downside is that they take a little while to get your food but everything else is good, service,parking and prices.

  • *****

    Great food, great service! I like that Happy Hour has great deals the drinks look good they have a cantarito Margarita I will come back to try that and 5 dollar micheladas.

  • *****

    Came here for the first time.. Although there was a misunderstanding in the beginning with the staff between us and other guest there I still think they deserve the 5 stars. They redeemed themselves with the delicious pozole they served me! Remind me of home cooked pozole and not many restaurants have that touch! My wife loved her plate as well. One thing I would suggest is a better selection on the kids menu; my family and I will definitely return here! Try the pozole! (Fridays only)

  • *****

    Very delicious food the tortas and micheladas are the best. I will come back to this place. Taste just like if u we're in Guadalajara jal uahhhhh!!!!

  • *****

    Mi primera vez ahí Rica comida y un excelente servicio de los meseros!!!

  • *****

    Best coffee (homemade). My husband had his famous tortas ahogadas, very tasty & clean. Nice homey restaurant. $$

  • *****

    I've always wanted to try tortas ahogadas and this is the first time here in this restaurant and I have to to say I really appreciate the service the food was amazing no doubt about it the atmosphere was nice I would definitely come back and recommend it to my family and friends

  • *****

    The food is delicious; however, personally, it's a lot of food for me. But, everyone is different! I enjoy their coffee, enchiladas & tortas ahogadas! They just remodeled too, so now you have more privacy on your seating. The service can be quick on weekdays but, on weekends specially on the AM it's packed with customer. However, it's only a 10 to 15 minutes of a wait.

  • *****

    The food is freaking awesome. OMG the coffee is the best.

  • *****

    Buen servicio Lalo y Rudy al 100 muy buena atención al cliente y la comida excelente!!!!

  • *****

    This was a very authentic Mexican plate , I order carne en su jugo very flavorful served with guacamole on the side chips Chile Serrano toreado and hand made tortillas definitely will return for a torta ahogada haven't try them , I got here by accident waiting to an appointment near by and decided to lunch in the mean time average place , clean , friendly

  • *****

    This is one of my favorite places to go and eat and we just recently got it catered for Mother's Day we loved the Barbacoa it was D licious I give it a 10+ plus Thank you so much for the catering and for your fast service loved it

  • *****

    Very accommodating. Loved the atmosphere of the restaraunt very calming and enjoyable. The employees were very helpful and nice. The place is clean and handicapped entrances and parking available.

  • *****

    I have been to TORTAS AHOGADAS GUADALAJARA many times to eat and the food is always delicious, warm and very tasty. Their micheladas are the best. On Sunday we had our Mothers day catered by them and everything was so good. We ordered Barbacoa, rice and beans. It came with chips, cilantro and onions. Meat was very tender and juicy. Everything arrived warm and very nicely packaged. Easy to assemble to be ready to eat. I recommend you use them for your next party so worth it.

  • *****

    We bought our food from T.A.G.I.L.A for our Mothers Day event on Sunday. We had the barbacoa with arroz and frijoles and all the trimmings. My husband went to go pick it up and it was well packaged. Food was nice and hot. The food was a hit! Everyone loved it! The barbacoa meat was so tender and juicy. So good with the chips. So if you don't want to cook and your having a family gathering I recommend this place. The food is delicious!
    Nopales were not included my mother made those. Lol

  • *****

    Excellent Service, food was delicious. The Tortas Ahogadas were good, Tacos de Barbacoa were great.
    Will definately return again.

  • *****

    We went for lunch and we tried the torta ahogada and the torta de camarones. I was definitely impressed by the authentic taste and it definitely brought back some good memories of Guadalajara. Ofcourse is not going to be exactly what Guadalajara makes (after all we are in LA) but it definitely was good ! I will definitely return.

  • *****

    Me gusto mucho la atencion del staff apesar de que se la ise de pedo al Sal porque cobran extra salsa siempre muy cordial y generoso. Gracias .claro que vuelvo

  • *****

    This is the best tortas ahogads i've had in the US. The birote is the closest it can get to guadalajara. There's still something lacking. Unfortunately it's service is not good for my standards hence the 4 stars. Would def grab for take out.

  • *****

    Food is very authentic and delicious. Friendly staff, very cleaned. I'll definitely come back.

  • *****

    Great food and service reasonable price sports on tv

  • *****

    Waitress was very helpful. Adjusted orders to our liking and price was fair for the proportions.

  • *****

    If you"re looking for authentic food Tapatío style, this is the place to go. Have tried most of the things on the menu and the taste is very close to home.

  • *****

    Their food is delicious and authentic!! Their tortas are so good! They need to work on their service, it's kinda slow. The place is a bit small and it seems to always have lots of customers so i hope they plan on expanding soon.

  • *****

    No las mejores tortas
    Pero si de lo mejor de LA.
    El lugar q mas se parecen a las tortas de mi guadalajara querida. Les recomiendo el lugar. Talvez necesiten mejorar el servicio. Pero es aceptable

  • *****

    Best tortas ahogadas must try it

  • *****

    Best place ever the food and drinks are true to Mexican food. You do have to wait some time it is a small space, and like I said the food is awesome so there is a wait to get in.t The waitress is always so welcoming and the owner is so friendly.

  • *****

    Great place to grab a flavorful meal. Highly recommend Chile relleno!

  • *****

    Good food,but its always full.the wait about 25 min.

  • *****

    Carne en su jugo is the bomb.

  • *****

    Muy ricas las tortas lástima que si tardan un poco en el servicio pero vale la pena la salsa en su punto

  • *****

    Good food., great taste and moderate prices

  • *****

    Mixta Torta Ahogada was so good! I'm definitely coming back! It's also very spicy so I had to treat myself to one of their bomb flans to turn down the heat.

  • *****

    This restaurant is an absolute gem. The food is only great but authentic too. I've had the tortas ahogadas and having roots in Guadalajaja, they bring back childhood memories. I've also had the tacos de Barbacoa and they're finger licking good. I've recommended several friends to this restaurant and they say the same too.

  • *****

    The food was really good and the service. It's just really small inside

  • *****

    The food is delicious and the drinks are good too. Service could improve.

  • *****

    Authentic and delicuous Mexican food! A really inviting and comfortable space to eat at. The service wasn't perfect, but it was lunch hour so it's understandable. The employees were all really polite and fun to talk to. 10/10 would eat here again

  • *****

    Nuestro mesero Rudy.. fue muy atento y rapido. Exelente servicio. Les recomiendo las margaritas cantarito.

  • *****

    I really liked my torta ahogada de camaron , we also ordered Carne en su Jugo it was very tasty with hand made tortillas you can't go bad with that.

  • *****

    This place is delicious!! If you want to eat great Mexican food I highly recommend this place! They have great service, Rudy was the one helping us and he had such great customer service and attitude.

  • *****

    De las mejores torras en Los Angeles
    Yo vivo en Utah y cada que viajó a LA nunca dejó de visitarlos

  • *****

    Really good Tortas ahogadas . probably the only place In LA that does them Originally like Mexico .

  • *****

    I've been following them since they had the little hot dog stand on Florence and Avalon. I was about 13 and I had came from a family trip to my parent's home town in Jalisco. I tried the tortas ahogadas over there and fell in love since I've always been a big fan of hot/spicy food. When we came back... my dad made it his mission to find me something similar to what I had tried out there. From asking around and lots of recommendations, we bumped into this little spot. Needless to say, I became a loyal customer since then and have made so many of my family and friend loyal customers too. I followed them EVERYWHERE they went! And this will always be my favorite go-to place when I'm craving my torta ahogada extra hot & order of tacos dorados de papa con carnitas. Even the tacos de barbacoa and carne en su jugo are sooo delicious! You guys will NOT be disappointed!

  • *****

    Hello all I want to say these are the best tortas ahogadas Guadalajara I've ever had!! Just like Guadalajara love them!! My girlfriend brought me today's. I recommend it. Service is great! Enjoy!! Tell a friend

  • *****

    Tortas Ahogadas Guadalajara in L.A. catered my daughter's birthday party this past weekend. I ordered the Tinga con Tostadas and they were a hit! My guests loved them! Thank you T.A.G. in L.A. for your great food and service!

  • *****

    These are the best tortas ahogadas I have ever tasted, apart from homemade ones of course. I haven't tried anything else on the menu. I love the bread, I believe it's sourdough, and the meat is delicious, they give a good hefty portion of it. Beware the the red hot sauce, believe me use it by the teaspoon and sparingly, it is extremely spicy!! Their specialty are the tortas, which to me always means everything else on the menu will be mediocre, just like antithetical specialty restaurant. The reason I gave it 3 stars is because I recently noticed it had a "B", I don't know if it had it all along, but I really don't feel comfortable with that. So I won't be returning until it has an "A", which sucks because their tortas are bomb!

  • *****

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go their all the time las tortas ahogadas are the best!!!!!!!!!!! mixtas (carnitas y buche) or just carnitas i take the mild the supper HOT makes me cry and lose my taste buds but oh they are so good!! They also sell tostadas de Tinga, tortas de jamon, tacos dorados de papa just a GREAT place!!!!!!!!!!

  • *****

    We love the tortas ahogadas here!!! So delicious! However we just came here on Thursday around 11:30am and the service was horrible!! The place is so busy and they seemed completely understaffed. There was a large group of people waiting by the door and waitresses do walk by without acknowledging people. The phone was ringing off the hook and at one point I witnessed one of the cooks come out and ask if she could help out with answering the phones. This is not the first time I've seen the place this way. I had called in a phone order waited 20 mins then went in and I still waited another 30 min for my food. The tortas are delish but lately seems like they've gotten smaller. If I were the owner of this buisness I would seriously consider opening a take out only location. Youre tortas are the best! But please make room for people to wait at youre current location. You shoulda kept the other location you guys had in addition to opening this one!!!!

  • *****

    THIS IS THE PLACE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN AUTHENTIC TORTA AHOGADAS. This the best BEST tortas Ahogadas I have had an not having having to actually be in Guadalajara ........

  • *****

    it the best in town there tacos, tortas ahhhh there posole is finger licking goooood you have to try it.

  • *****

    tortas ahogadas guadalajara is the place to be if you wanna enjoy real mexican food..ive been to many restaurants and really no restaurant has been able to match the great taste of the food..really good service and the"cubetas de chelas estan bien frias"..the only reason this place gets pack is because the tortas are so great....and delicious..nice place to have a good time...and pleasant service...really good music...viva guanatos!

  • *****

    So to be quite honest, I am a very picky eater. Dislike any meat that is not beef, noo raw onions acceptable, fonditas? What are fonnditas?? and had never heard of "tortas Ahogadas" .
    I am in love with tortas Ahogadas Guadalajara!! I started by trying the original torta Ahogada that consists of a toasted bread with yummy refried beans that are spreaded within the buns, carnitas and 2 tomato sauces. One non spicy and the other extremely spicy. Then it's up to you how much you want to drown "ahogar" your sandwich "torta"( oh yeah and red onions for topping)
    Second time around I requested the meat to be "de asada" since I repeat, I am a picky eater and I was in heaven. When I was brought into loving the Tortas I remember the business being in a lunch truck and later moved to this location. The place is horrendous if I must be honest which is why I give them four stars but I heard a rumor of them relocating in the near future. Seriously if near the area, call in to place an order and have it to go and grab a side of tacos dorados de papa!

    FYI cash only! No nearby atms

  • *****

    OMG, this place is for real! If you want authentic Guadalajara food, then this is the place. Ordered the Torta and couldn't put it down. Can't wait to go back to try the rest of the menu. A heads up, when they say spicy, they mean spicy. Stick with the medium.

  • *****

    Came here for lunch today and this place is amazing!! Today I had there carne en su jugo and it was bomb.com I cant wait to come back I would live to bring my dad he is from Guadalajara and I know he will enjoy this.

  • *****

    Great place! you'll feel you are in Guadalajara, Tortas Ahogadas and tostadas de cueritos are delicious!

  • *****

    I was introduced to Tortas ahogadas Guadalajara by my boyfriend he's been coming here for years and is always raving about it. So I finally decided to check it out. Im not much of a carnitas fan so I asked our waitress if they could make me a torta de pollo instead, even though they don't have that on the menu... she looked at me funny at first and said sure we can make it for you. . And let me tell you it was delicious! ! The spiciness and the bread consistency was perfect. . . They should really add that to their menu... I will definitely be coming back here again. . .

  • *****

    Wow the torta ahogada is good and spicy. They give you a good warning prior to ordering. Good amounts for the price :)

  • *****

    I came here today for a weekday lunch. I was a little scared because I didn't see any English on the outside but once inside, there were no language barrier issue at all. I was alone, but the server was super nice and friendly. I tried the Thursday special - castillos (?) - spicy stewed pork in red sauce. OH. EM. GEE. Deeelish!! If I were to ever move away from LA, I would miss great Mexican food like this. It came with albondigas soup which was also the best I've ever had (although admittedly, I haven't had a whole lot of albondigas). Plus, homemade tortillas! Yum! I couldn't finish it, so I took the rest home, but the leftovers were so good regretted not leaving myself a little more for the second round! I'm seriously considering coming here again tomorrow, especially because I think the Friday special was pozole, my favorite Mexican food.

  • *****

    Want authentiv mexican food? THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!! Everytime I go i feel like I'm eating at my grandma's house. Delicious food , friendly staff, and affordable prices!

  • *****

    I've searched for years now to find a place that's makes food like my grandparents did!! The carne en su jugo is my all time favorite plate and I've finally found somewhere that actually nailed it!!! Customer service here is good owners are working the restaurant greeting everyone which to me is always a plus!! The tortas ahogadas are also a must try!! Definitely will be recommending people here fam and friends!!

  • *****

    Food is great! The Chile is really hot so I recommend you add sauce with precaution cause it'll have your lips burning. Haha, other than that the service is great and the food is delicious! Not pricey either

  • *****

    I went ahead and and tried the Torta Ahogada de Carnitas. I saw Carmen G's warning in the tips and broke off the spicy. First off, I applaud the care and concern that the wait staff had for a non-Spanish speaking lighter skinned media-Mex like me. When I ordered the spicy she did the "are you sure, it's really spicy" thing, but I assured her that was fine.

    My training had only scarcely prepared me for what came out of the kitchen. It was a wet torta with filled with carnitas and a refried bean "spread" on the roll. The whole thing was swimming in a deep, rich, red sauce. I took my first bite and immediately felt the heat. The carnitas were tender, but I can't speak to the seasoning as the sauce essentially took the flavor front-and-center. The refried beans (I had a side as well) were tasty and retained some of the whole beans for a nice texture element.

    A second nice waitress asked if I was okay because she saw me sweating with tears rolling down my cheeks. Did I mention that spicy actually means spicy here?

    At the end of the day, my only gripe is that the bread had a little too much crunch to it. Knowing how easy it is to get amazing bolillos in this area, there's really no reason to have crunchy bread.

    Yes, I'm going to get the medium next time. If like to know what their carnitas taste like...

    My sister and I went in this morning and our experience with the food was delicious. I had a Torta Ahogadas with carnitas and it was so good. They have spicy and mild sauce for it. I'm glad the waitress convinced me to get the mild sauce because even the mild sauce had a kick to it. My sister order the breakfast Mexicana ??, it had a carne asada, chorizo, bean, rice, grilled onions and hand made tortillas. Lets not forget the Micheladas those were on point. We were truly satisfied with the overall experience. We will definitely, be going back and making this our spot. Cant wait to take my parents to have the same experience we did. Arriba Guadalajara!!!!

    authentic delicious, one of my favorite spots for lunch time !
    try the sobes ,mmmm not like any other !

  • *****

    The food was delicious, just the wait time too long, 30 mins to be called and than 30 mins waiting for our food, they should improve on that! :)

  • *****

    This place is great for a good original Torta ahogada flavor.

    The only thing they need to improve is SERVICE.

  • *****

    I am going to start with the positive things about this place;
    -Authentic recipes and flavor
    -They are honest about the spicy sauce since the beginning in case you want it on the side
    -the deco is okay not the best in town but the food makes that up
    -descent drinks
    -parking so easy to find
    -tacos have really good portion of meat

    I would have loved giving this place a 5 star review because I love the fact that they had original birote salado which no other place does, but the service killed my vibe.
    -too slow or too busy? Who knows, that is not the customers' issue
    -attentive employees but way too serious almost bored they looked
    -our food took forever but it was worth it

    I will definitely come back simply because my boyfriend and I loved the food but hopefully they will have better service next time and smile a little bit more!

    Ok I have to say that I am loyal to this place! I am addicted to their food. ALL THEIR FOOD. I have not left this place disappointed... EVER!! I see reviews where people are disappointed for the wait time...Yes you have to wait for your food what do you expect this is not a fast food restaurant!!! You will get a quality meal so the wait is worth it! Their service is excellent. The waitresses are so sweet and helpful. What more can you ask a restaurant that makes you feel at home.

    I highly recommend this please... You will not leave disappointed.

    I'm back again. I had Tacos De canasta and
    I also ordered an Torta Ahogada, excellent. The service started out slow, but it got better and the food made up for it. I recommend this place.

  • *****

    Great place to spend good time while having authentic mexican food and listening live music! The trio

  • *****

    First time here, good experience. Had taco de barcacoa and taco de requeson. Red salsa super hot! Will come back for pozole.

  • *****

    One of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten! The hot sauce will blow your head off!!! The pork is delectable. The sourdough roll they use is great and always fresh. I get mine soaked in the tomato sauce with the hot sauce on the side. Once I made the mistake of having the whole thing soaked in hot sauce and my face felt like it melted! The onions are perfect. The fresh homemade guacamole is really good. Hardshell potato tacos are good too. I highly recommend this place.

  • *****

    Totrtas Ahogadas are delicious, I was on a hunt for a good spicy gotta Ahogada for years. Now I found it

  • *****

    I was looking for a place to dine in with a friend for happy hour and I found torts ahogadas on Yelp. This place is great, the service is great and the food is sooooooooo delicious!! I ordered a wet burrito and shared tacos dorados with my friend. The wet burrito was so good! The tacos dorados are worth the trip and are a must try! I had a bite of a torts ahogada de carnitas and it was good. All and all, this place gets 5 stars!

  • *****

    Really good food, tried the tortas ahogadas and the carne en su jugo. Very great taste and great service as well. Will definitely come again:)

  • *****

    I went here with my husband, 3 and 5 year old kids and all loved it. The torta augada was the bomb, authentic down to the special birote, a bit spicy but soooo yummy. My husband had menudo and thought it was real good my kids love the rice and beans. The place itself makes u feel like if ur in Guadalajara because of the beautiful decor. I will definitely come again and recommended to anyone in town.

  • *****

    I really love this place. Ive visit this location several times and i haven't been dissapointed yet. They have always been really friendly and check up on you! I don't expect much for the service i go to enjoy my food not to be treated like royalty. Its worh the 40 minute drive. I recommend the carne en su jugo! Besg place !

  • *****

    Droooool! I love their tortas mixtas with the super spicy sauce. They have different levels of spice so that's great since no one ever has spicy enough for me!

    Their Tuesday night specials are awesome too!

  • *****

    My boss just asked me "What's the best Mexican restaurant around?" I said, "Tortas Ahogadas Guadalajara in LA, of course!" I've often brought friends and family here for lunch and dinner and everyone has always agreed that's it's the best. I LOVE their tacos de barbacoa and of course their Tortas! Also, they have the best chilaquiles!!

    They recently donated some horchata for an event my student group had at USC and everyone raved about it. They said it was the best horchata they've ever had!

    The owners and staff are the sweetest and make you feel like you're familia! I love the drink specials of course. Their prices are affordable, which helps when you want amazing food and are also a starving student.

    Delicious food, best horchata I've ever had, generous and friendly owners and affordable prices. That's why I give this place 5 stars!

  • *****

    There Torta Ahogadas are the bomb just like the ones in Guadalajara. Chips and salsa to begin were great. Paired with a Mexican Coke bottle...it's a freakin meal. Restroom on site and plenty of parking. Waitress service. Don't need to go all the way to Guadalajara for a Torta Ahogadas they brought to you.

  • *****

    I am originally from Guadalajara. And I was craving for some tortas ahogadas . My boyfriend and I did an hour an a half drive from riverside ! It was totally worth the drive . The tortas they make are the closes ones to the ones from Guadalajara . I order a Tejuino to drink and a Jericalla for dessert & they were also very delicious and authentic . They also had great service .
    Will I be coming back again ? Yes!!
    Do I recommend it ? Yes .
    This place exceeded my expectations .

  • *****

    This restaurant is a gem. The food is not only great but authentic too. Ive had the Tortas Ahogadas and having roots in Guadalajara, they bring back memories. I've also had the tacos de Barbacoa and they're delicious. Oh and they have great prices too! Must try.

  • *****

    I travel over 30 miles daily to come and eat their specialty, tortas ahogadas. They are original and the salsa is fantastic! I have ordered other good food like the menudo, burritos and tacos. But I always seem to enjoy the tortas more. They do tend to get busy on the weekends so do be patient. I don't blame them for being so busy. Just means they're great!

  • *****

    Very good tortas ahogadas! I love the fact that you get the sauces on the side in case you want to make it more spicy or just more juicy! Their micheladas are also amazing! Love this place.

  • *****

    This is a good place to stop by if you are In the area. I love the tortas ahogadas y shrimp. My kids love the horchata. Sometimes It is extremely packed but it's worth the wait.

  • *****

    First time coming here and very great service, my family enjoyed their dinner and I was very impressed with there torta hogada with 3rd level spice sauce..damn I was feeling it...lol!!!

  • *****

    This place is so great and delicious! They are famous for their tortas and they are amazing but I love the carne en su jugo. Also, the tacos dorados de papa con carne y buche are really good!!! You can literally choose anything on the menu and it has the really authentic Mexican sabor. Watch out for the hot sauce cause that thing is no joke.

    If you go on the weekend there is a little bit more of a wait but it's definitely worth it. If there's a line out the door you know the food is going to be good!

    The prices are pretty good considering all the food you get. They're not stingy with the portions. Come with a big appetite and lots of friends!!!

  • *****

    Decent place if you're around the area, dishes I like are Menudo, Carne en su jugo and tortas ahogadas, taste is good, also the Jericallas are tasty.

    The wife is slowly falling in love with this place...she's totally moved on from me, I'm old news. I've been replaced by a torta.

    Best tortas ahogadas! Great service, the food is very good. If you want authentic Mexican food this is the place to go.

  • *****

    Tortas Ahogadas in LA is the best place to find and enjoy an authentic torta estilo Guadalajara. Trust me when I say this, I visited Guadalajara last year and both tortas taste about the same. I've checked in at this place several times on Facebook while sharing some of the pictures of my food and many friends of mine have gone after that and they all LOVE this restaurant. The prices are very affordable and let's not forget the great service that you'll receive. This place is family owned so they treat every customer as part of the familia. Obviously this place is always packed because they have their faithful customers as well as new ones all the time.

    Also, they have amazing happy hour specials that will beat some of the prices from other nearby restaurants. This place is a must-go if you want to have an authentic Mexican dish, whether if it's a torta ahogada or some tacos de barbacoa or their incredibly delicious chilaquiles, that's why I rate this place the BIG 5 stars!!

  • *****

    The food here is delicious I love it I usually come here before work the only bit of a bad thing is the waiting time I usually eat like two plates of chips with salsa lol for the wait its so tastey!! Feel like taking it home sometimes lol
    Anyways my favorite plate would be the tacos with barbacoa those are to die for !

  • *****

    Delicious food and great service. I've had the tortas ahogadas, tacos de barbacoa, tacos de canasta, carne en su jugo, etc. Any plate I order is always delicious. Their micheladas are the best I've had, which is surprising, as I wasn't even aware they offered them. I will keep coming back for sure. And did you know that they cater? I can't wait to book them for my next party at home.

  • *****

    This place was great!!
    I came with my family & we all tried a lil of something. The carne en us jugo was bomb!
    The tacos de canasta (chicharron) were nice and crispy. My boo tried their famous tortas ahogadas and they are great! Plus their micheladas were not water down they were just right!

  • *****

    I recommend this restaurant to come and eat tortas ahogadas and carne en su jugo its my favorite plate ..

  • *****

    Food was good the tortilla freshly made
    The service was quick and very attentive . Would definitely come again

  • *****

    This restaurant is on point with their authentic Mexican food. Tortas, tacos menudo are Great. The waitress was pretty and very helpful

  • *****

    Best tortas ahogadas ever!! Taste like my moms! Will definitely be coming here every time I'm in Huntington park. Seriously recommend this place to anyone craving a torta ahogada

  • *****

    Solid torta ahogada restaurant, bread is hard & salty the way its supposed to be, filled with good chunks of your choice of meat and topped with lemon pickled onion slices and a tomato base with chile to your liking. I do like that they give you extra warm sauce to pour over your torta ahogada as you like. Also they have a variety of tacos dorados with different fillings such as cheese, potato, beans, they take a bit to come out because they are freshly made also topped with cabbage super delish. Service was friendly, they do accept cc, plenty of seating, we showed up on a saturday around 11am and it wasn't crowded, we got a table right away, they have tons of other menu items

  • *****

    Sooooo good. Everything was so well made and authentic. Chips were crunchy and salted just right. The horchata was creamy, no grainy stuff. And torta was bomb.

  • *****

    I like the food and the service. Tried the tacos de barbacoa they were pretty good. Tortas were good. The sauce was spicy just how i like it. I went there in a Sunday around 11 am. They were out of menudo and posole. But i will sure eatvhere again.
