Pros: food, portions, salsa

Cons: parking

Great mexican food -- the beef is tender and tasty. I had the 2 beef tostados meal, and it was excellent. The place is sort of "hole-in-the-wallish," but those places usually have the best food. Their burritos supposedly won an award -- one of those "best of pasadena" type things, but of course, I didn't see the certificate on the wall until after my meal.

Quick 'n dirty, like a jungle mudslide. Probably as dangerous as well.

I used to go here regularly - the food is very cheap for a sit-down place and it tastes pretty good.

Nicknamed the local "hole in the wall" - but not for good reasons. The meat is definitely straight out of a can, and food preparation is sketchy. Avoid!

Now this is Mexican food! The place is a dive, but the food is to die for. It is the best and most authentic Mexican food I have ever had outside of my mom's kitchen. The hearty, delicious portions make this affordable restaurant the best

Tucked in on Fair Oaks so that you'd practically miss it, El Toreo's front door sits right at the bus stop. Appropriate, because you can imagine a Sam Shepard character chowing down on huevos here before boarding the Greyhound to Rancho
