Mexican for large take out order in Long beach

salmon Jan 11, 2007 03:49 PM

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!!

    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.

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

        I would second the recommendation of Super Mex.

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

            here is a link to their site:
