Guacamole, Salsa & Chips

I live in the South Bay, travel just about anywhere to find this favorite combo. Chunky guacamole, thick crunchy chips, and fresh tasty salsa. Any favorites or suggestions?

  1. Try LOS GUEROS in Monrovia. They make their own guacamole tableside (link to free coupon below).

    1. Taleo in Irvine has GREAT guac & salsa! They also have a great Queso Fundido! The chips are, I would say, of medium thickness.

        Haven't had their guac, but I don't remember being too "wowed" by their salsa. The queso fundido is pretty darn good though. Maybe I need to go back and try their salsa since I really only remember enjoying the queso.

      2. Due to Chowhounders just tried Enrique's on PCH in LBC. Wasn't too impressed EXCEPT for the hot chips, spicy salsa, and a guac that managed to be creamy and chunky at the same time. If you are in South Bay this is a must. Just down the road from Marina Pacifica in a strip mall.

        1. I like the frsh guacamole made in front of you at La Parilla. The chips and salsa are good too.

          1. I can't think of a better place on the Westside than The Talpa. Fresh & warm, thick crunchy chips, unadulterated guac, and spicy fire roasted salsa. The chips and salsa usually need a few dashes of salt, but other than that, you're good to go.
