Ortega 120, Love at Happy Hour bite~

  • Aug 7, 2009

There are very VERY few places in the South Bay of LA that one can find a good meal- even less so if you want to pay less than 15 bucks! But there is hope and its in Redondo Beach

-- Ortega 120--

Its Mexican food but not like you think- instead of deep frying everything and smothering it with cheddar
cheese, Ortega has a different, more elegant, approach to tacos- actual delicious carne asada, carnitas, chicken, spare ribs, oh I could go on and on!  All in beautiful hand made tortillas with a sprinkling of Cojita cheese and cilantro- heaven.

And to go with their fabulous $2 Happy Hour tacos one needs to try their house marg- no sweet and sour in sight!  Its fruity deliciousness and plenty of tequila to make you smile. And No Patron here, that stuff tastes like burning hell once you've tried a real agave silver tequila, this writer loves Milagro.

In these tough times, you have to try at least Happy Hour here, $2 tacos (i can only eat 2, my boyfriend can eat 5 but he eats a lot)and $5 Margs- its a small investment in a delectable dinner-

                      Tuesday Tequila University nights at Ortega 120 is full of good fun, great friends and of course, delicious food and tasty tequila! Ortega hosts a variety of specialty events, including Tequila University! For just $20 bucks, you're treated out on the beautiful patio to yummy apps (guacamole, taquitas, tacos & more), answers to everything you’ve ever wondered about tequila …
