The only "Bad" thing that I can say is that the parking at times can be shall we say "Challenging". Otherwise this is one of the best Mexican Food Joints in the Greater Los Angeles Area. Sorry Manuels of East LA! My Sainted Wife and I go VERY regularly to break bread there. I can also say that there is... More

This is the very small off-shoot of the Mijares in Pasadena. Ok food and little ambiance. Only beer and wine so no "George's Special" margarita's - too bad!

Mijares is one of those "go-to" places for consistently good Mexican food. The place is always clean and the staff is friendly. The lunch specials are always a bargain.

This is a small place up on Washington St. I have had several things here and liked them all. One mile north of the 210 on Allen. Not a tourist stop, but a very nice place to eat.

This is the eastern annex to the original Mijares in Pasadena that has been a fixture in the community for generations. It has excellent Mexican food with all the classics and a few specials. This annex does not have the ambiance of the original but the food is the same and it does a lot of take out business.

The restaurant is OK. Typical Mexican cuisine, nothing extraordinarily special or bad. Parking is a nightmare and its biggest drawback.

I don't get it! There is another Mijares location in town that serves really splendid food, and has been doing so forever. What happened here????

I love tacos; I order them every chance I get. This place has the best chicken tacos. I am sure I have ordered other things, but I always go back to ordering hard shell chicken tacos. The soft tacos are good too. I once took them to work for co workers and they were crazy for them. It is a... More

We were advised to try this place. Later, we understand they have two restaurants in town. This one was very small with no atmosphere at all. The salsa was too hot to be enjoyed, so I didn't eat any. The food was to be authentic Mexican, and if that is the case then Mexican food is not all that good.... More
