Eating outdoors, Mexican, along the 57 (Claremont to Fullerton)?

Hey all,
Looking for an outdoor patio setting for some good Mexican eats, along the drive or in Claremont-Fullerton. Any suggestions? All my research has come up with zilch, so many taquerias in strip malls with no outdoor seating.

I want some tacos in the sun!

    I haven't eaten there, so I don't know about the food, but there's Casa Moreno in the Claremont Village West. Nice outdoor patio. But again, I don't know about the quality of the food.

      That place is nearly universally panned on Yelp, so I was omitting it from my options. Sad because it's in a nice spot.

        No outdoor seating, but for the food and based on your route I'd eat at http://www.elfarolitomex.com/ if I was making the same trip and wanted good Mexican food.

      What about Moreno's Restaurant in Orange? I think it's on Chapman.
