Something good for a group of 15 near South El Monte thats not Chinese
My softball team is celebrating the end of the season with a lunch near Whittier Narrows Recreation Center. Most unforutunatly wont touch dim sum Any recomendatiopn for a decent casual place. Maybe a large Mexican place rather than a taco stand or something along those lines. Any suggestions?
Not sure if its still around, but for such events I like ajos y cebellos (1648 Tyler Ave Ste D, El Monte). It's a family run mexican place that is on Santa Anita and Tyler. It's got a nice vibe and pretty good food. Lots of cheese!
El Tepayac on Rush is not bad but not superb and would fit your group.
The place off of the 60 FWY across from Fry's would be another option. It's a Mexican place that is also okay, but it's a nice restaurant.
There's really not much to eat in the immediate vicinity.
There is a Marie Callendar's at the Montebello mall with a decent Sunday brunch.
There's an Applebee by the Costco.
How about BJ's Pizza and Brewhouse @ Montebello Town center, Petrillo's 833 E. Valley Blvd. San Garbiel (Valley Blvd.and Del Mar), The Pizza Company across from the San Garbiel Mission, Marquez on Potreo Grande in Monterey Park across from the Cementary, Steve's Steakhouse 5 freeway @ Eastern Avenue. Too bad no Chinese resturant...very good and inexpense lunch specials...for real Chinese, A1 resturant (was a "Sam Woo") next to The Montebello Ford. No fuss, no muss...Hometown buffet in Montebello!
