Where to get good Mexican food in Long Beach? Any suggestions?

Other types of food is an option. Maybe Thai or anything just plain good.

Thanks.

There's a place on Fourth called (I think) Tito's? Just takeout, but them's some good tacos.
Don't know the address, but it's close to Orange.


. . . and your little dog, too!

what are you looking for? familyish? high roller upper end? trucks? slightly more inland i can send you to some crazy good places....but if long beach is the call, skip the mexican food and go to beachwood bbq.

if mexican sea food is calling, playa amor in LB gets rave reviews. i hear lolas is pretty good.

Lolas is good for higher end foodie Mexican food, and I dont mean that in a bad way.

Los Compadres on Anaheim for a more classic sit down place.

Thai I cant think of anything but Ive heard good things about Phnom Penh Noodle Shack on Cherry if you want to try Cambodian food, havent been there myself though.

Green Field for Brazilian bbq on PCH, been a while since Ive been there but it was good last time I went.

Beachwood BBQ is a good call too.

20w-50, what inland places you got? Im moving back down to LB from South Bay next week and cheaper rent means more $$ for food and beer for me.

Enriques- 2 locations high end on PCH, low budget in Northtown on Artesia
My favorite Thai is Coconut Rabbit in Los Alamitos

I'd also say Enrique's in LB as well. Another good one is El Zarape in Cypress. Avilas in Seal and La Capilla in La Palma are also honorable mentions.

As a matter of fact, yes. The last place I ate in California was in Long Beach, cant remember the name but it was next to a tire store, and they had that and more. Not texmex, no globs of velveta cheese on everything.

Sit down Mexican - Rivera's, Los Compadres, Lola's (a little trendy, but good)
Hole in the wall - taqueria la Mexicana (4th just west of redondo), Casa Sanchez (Anaheim
Best fish tacos at Taco Nazo in Bellflower

Phnom Penm is great Cambodian
Hong Phat on Anaheim for the best Pho (nothing better after a cold winter dawn patrol)
Long Beach Thai restaurant (Anaheim street)
Tasty food to go (Laotian)
A few good Filipino places on the west side (Santa Fe st)

As mentioned above The attic and Beachwood (even though I prefer the OG Seal Beach local)
