Mexican for large take out order in Long beach

hello ...
Can anyone point me in the direction of a really good authentic mexican joint in Long Beach where one could order a bunch or carnitas and carne asada 'to go' for a party (need to feed about 20 people) and then also a large side of tortillas (pref. homemade), salsa and possible rice and beans? I live up in the south bay but am helping plan a party in Long beach so I am unfamiliar with the area ...

On my list so far (from searching CH):
1. Los Compadres (on anaheim but I think there is also one on pine ....?)
2. Enrique's Mexican Restaurant
3. taco loco No. 3 (I think this is just a stand so they may not be able to do it)

Thanks so much!!

  1. I moved from long beach years ago, but I do have fond memories of Super Mex restaurant.

    here is a link to their site:

      1. I would second the recommendation of Super Mex.

        1. Yeah Supermex does a good job with large 'to go' orders. they do mamoth party burritos too...


          1. Another vote for Supermex. There's one on 1st at Alamitos.

            If you eat in, beware the 'Bomba'. I never figured out if it's 72oz or only 64oz.
