Mexican in Southbay?

Nicole May 30, 2007 05:41 PM

What are your favorite Mexican restaurants in Southbay? I've been to El Gringo in Hermosa Beach, and find the food pretty good but not great...and for some reason the meat is way too salty. I like Pancho's in Manhattan Beach, but this is kind of like the disney version of Mexican...looking for someplace smaller and less expensive. Where do you go for Mexican in Southbay?

    Does El Segundo count as South Bay? If so, it's gotta be La Paz for me. Mariposa & Center Street. I love the Super Deluxe Burrito and their chips and salsa. Super cheap too.

      If Torrance isn't too far south then give Lucio's a try. Terrific little place with excellent food at reasonable prices and great salsas as an added benefit.
