Great Mexican food in the Harbor area?

I kinda like Taxco at Western and Capitol in San Pedro, but I can't call it outstanding. There are so many reco's for great potato tacos, sopes, chilaquiles, and other not-so-common items here on Chowhound, but they're all a loooong way from home for me.

There are, of course, many many Mexican restaurants in San Pedro, Wilmington, and Harbor City, but I don't know anything about them. Anybody have favorite items at any of these places?

  1. Las Brisas on Gaffey and Channel. Excellent and cheap breakfast. Gaffey Street Cafe right at the end of the 110 has home made Chorizo. It was featured on the Food Network a few weeks ago. Pena's on 25th & Western and also Pina's on 9th and Meyler.

    There is also a burrito place in Wilmington. I think it is called Issacs (?) all the longshoremen get food there. I've only had "to go" from there and have not physically been.

    I like the beef and potato from Diana's in Carson on sepulveda.
