North HIlls, CA 91343
I can't believe I haven't already reviewed this place, as it was one of the first places Kelly and I tried when we moved up to North Hills 6 years ago and we loved it! Big Portions, Great Food and Good Prices, with the only complaint being only bear and wine, no margaritas!
The funny part is that when we first came we just got the Tortas. Tortas are delicious Mexican sandwiches, and the Tortas Barbocoa with the amazing beef in a pit barbeque is beyond amazing. Other than that I also had the great burritos and tacos, and they have many delicious meats including a great carne asada. With that we were pretty much happy for years, but we were so very wrong.
This is the carne campestre, which is tender cuts of pork marinated overnight in a tangy red sauce. It is claimed to have been voted by food critics to be among the top ten best dishes in southern california, and honestly after eating it, I believe it. THIS DISH IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! One of the tastiest I have every had! And it come with a couple of tortillas, which you an make little burritos out of, and there is tons of pork for $11.95! This is one of my favorite dishes I have ever had, Absolutely delicious! WOW, WOW, WOW!
And Kelly had Costillitas En Salda De Tomatillo, with is pork short ribs slow roasted in tomatillo and chile sauce. And this was also amazing, maybe not as good as the Carne Campestre, but it is amazing!
This place is an absolute must try!
