We love the restaurant on Palmetto, but were on the other side of Pasadena, and thought we'd give this smaller version a try. Service wasn't that prompt or attentive, and we were 1 of only 3 tables. The food was good, not outstanding like the other location. The chips and salsa were delicious. We recommend this place based on the food, not the service, so don't go in and expect great service.

We love the food!!! We love the prices. However, it is quite distracting to have a meal in such tight quarters, try and converse with your table mate(s) and be distracted by ear-piercing whistling from somewhere in the kitchen. It has happened twice in the past year. We will not go back...unless we order takeout.

Pros: Great food, very reasonable pricing, friendly servers

Cons: Whistling from Kitchen, small parking lot

My boyfriend, my son, and I went to Mijares on Sunday for lunch. They loved their entrees (quesadilla & beef burrito), but I was a bit disappointed in the taquitos. The guacamole is EXCELLENT!

Though this location is more of a lunch place than a dinner place (no atmosphere) the food is still the wonderful Mijares food, including the great "garbage burrito". Their lunch specials consistently draw a regular lunch crowd from the area and for good reason--they are affordable and well made. A great place to go for mexican.

I highly recommend Mijares for excellent mexican food. Try their shrimp and lobster enchiladas. The staff is courtesy and accurate with your order. Parking is good for this location.

Better known as "Mijaritos," this is the "other" Mijares. This has a small, sparse, very casual cafe style, with a limited menu (less seafood dishes and wine margaritas only). Everyone their is great, and greets you by name. The dishes are larger and less expensive than the "Original," thats why tons of regulars come in. Get past the ugly mini-mall and find some parking if you can (same problem as the other restaurant!) and you will be rewarded. Ask for Drew if you want great service on Sunday's, I had a wonderful experience. Locals keep quiet about this place because they want it for themselves.

Pros: Quality, Price, Service

Cons: Wine margaritas, Location/Parking, If its really busy

In an ugly strip-mall with very poor parking, but the food and service is quite good! Get past the ugly surroundings and have some good Mexican food.

Been coming here for a few years now. Their chimichangas (fried burritos) and strawberry margarita's always hit the spot. Definitely worth trying

Pros: Margarita's

.

A friend of mine ordered the shrimp fajitas, and they looked really great -- good-sized shrimp, fresh onions, tomatoes and peppers. And I have many coworkers who swear by Mijares' margaritas. Sit on the back patio if you can. Service was friendly, though we did have an order mix-up; it was taken care of very promptly.

This is a good place to meet up after work for some chips and margaritas. The food is pretty good, but I wouldn't go out of my way to come here to eat.

.

The food here is fantastic (arguably the best I've had in LA). The margaritas are good, and the place is big, open and fun (although the bar is really small). We go as a big group pretty much weekly for happy hour, and they have always been great to us. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in LA, without question, and one of my favorite happy hour spots (not so much if you're going by yourself).

I like Mijares just fine, but I've never found the food to be so terrific that it's worth the interminable wait (or the nonexistent parking) on a weekend night. Good place for a group when you're hankering for big sloppy ritas, but there are other better places for a great meal.
