Mijares in Pasadena

I just found out I'm going to a holiday lunch at Mijares. What's the scoop on it? Should I be excited or dreading it?

  1. Dreading. I'd rather go to El Torito! If you prefer quantity over quality, though, you probably would be pleased... but I doubt that since you're here on this site!

      1. Is it the one on Washington? The food is nothing special, and its a real mess!

          145 Palmetto Dr, Pasadena, CA 91105

          It was either that or El Cholo in Pasadena...

        2. The place is a lot of fun. The food--nothing to write about. So go and have fun.

          1. I would choose El Cholo over Mijares ... much better margaritas and very good carnitas.
