It is very good authentic mexican food. I love their burritos. The trick is do not order too much as their servings are huge. The fresh guacamole and their chips are easy to fill up on before the food ever comes. I also enjoy the fact they have a lighter side menu as well for those of us trying to watch our weight. It is a mainstay for Mexican food in Long Beach. There is plenty of parking off the back for this location. Be prepared to take a doggy bag home. It is also a nice location to walk off your food down second street.
All the food on the Menu is mouth watering, delicious!!. They have large flat screens throughout the restaurant (just in case your boyfriend or husband doesn't want to miss a sports game) You can sit inside or right next to the Marina.. We had our daughters engagement party there. The mixed drinks are out of this world. When we have visitors from out of Town, Tequila Jacks is where we take them. The Service is Great!!!!!! They have a large menu for everyone in the family to Enjoy!!!!!
I GOT QUITE OFTEN TO BELMONT TO FISH THE PIER AND NEVER EAT ANYWHERE AROUND THERE ASIDE FROM BUOYS OBN THE PIER (WHOS BREAKFAST BURRITOS ROCK)UNTIL THIS PAST SAT. WHEN I TRIED THE AL PASTOR BURRITO FROM CHRONIC TACO AND ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS " GOOD-BYE BUOY'S". THE BURRITO WAS HUGE AND FRESH TASTING IS ALL AROUND DELICIOUS. I TRIED THE CARNE ASADA BURRITO THE NEXT DAY AND IT WAS JUST AS GOOD. TWO THUMBS WAY UP!
Rivera's is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. Their food surpasses all other Mexican restaurants in California. Their family/staff has always been friendly and respectful. Their food is addictive. They use to cater to my school district and they were our primary caterers until they closed their Compton restaurant. Once you taste their food you will not be satisfied going to other restaurants.
The Best Mexican Food in Long Beach! I have lived in Long Beach for a very long time and have grown up eating Mexican food. Its the best! Anyone who says different, is just wrong. Try the cheese.. its great. Ask for the specials and order them. The tacos and burritos are not what you order at this restaurant. My favorite dishes are pork shank, pork tamales, cheese nachos, chicken special, filet mignon.
Had a fabulous time here with my partner. Good drinks (house margaritas are yummy! and I'm not a margarita drinker) and prompt service on a Friday night. Food came fast, drinks came well mixed, everything was perfect on our night. Food was just as ordered and our waiter was great. 4 stars only because well, it's El Torito.
Wow, hard to believe no one has ever reviewed this restaurant before! This funky, local-local spot is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. Excellent, authentic Mexican food! Very friendly service. I typically get the huevos rancheros. Delicious!
If you haven't tried barbacoa de res (beef), go to this place and try it. You will love it!! I recommend the tacos planchados and the dorasos (hard shell tacos) ...and top it off with their different salsas and toppings from the salsa bar. Yummm!!
This El Torito's service is kinda spotty, but the servers are so sweet. They have a great happy hour, & the restaurant is good-sized, so there is usually not a wait. My only complaint? No refried beans, just some wanna-be pintos...
The best shrimp taco on the planet seriously!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have to get it ensenada style and also put extra baja sauce,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,SO FREAKING GOOD I literally die for their chips and salsa!!!!!!!!!
