Tonny's in Pasadena, so what to get?

You guys keep mentioning so might finally give it a try, but what to get? Is it a sit-down restaurant or a Mexican fast food stand (and is it regional Mex or what?0 thanks.

    A def. must get is the Chile Verde... I haven't had better in Los Angeles ANYWHERE. Also the juice drinks pack a punch... get a small though, they are really hearty. :

        Hubbie loved the birria (I didn't because I have low tolerance for sour food).

        Chili Rellenos are quite good there. Son liked the carnitas burrito there too.

      2. birria sounds awesome, and is chile verde just the chile or is it with meat, thanks.

          Chile Verde is made with Green Chiles and Pork... Excellent.. :)


        2. I took my Mexican friend and she said that the Chile Verde is some of the best she has ever had. I love their posole, so that is what I get. I would stay away from their al pastor and carne asada - not so good (there are other places in the area that do them much, much better). I got their taquitos one time and was definitely not impressed. Fruit drinks. Their tortillas are really good, too.

          1. any non-pork dishes that are good there? or not except for the juices.
