My husband and I have gone to Olamendi's for over 20 years. We used to live in Laguna Beach and moved to Costa Rica 18 years ago. However, we come back to California every year to see family and make our annual stop at this restaurant. Funky cool decor. I usually judge a Mexican restaurant initially by the flavor/quality of their salsa. They have the best, mild and hot. Their chips are not too thick and also worth the calories. Our favorite dish is the pork burrito and fajitas!
Their margaritas are good too. The waitresses seem to remember us each year - happy staff is a good sign. This used to be a restaurant President Nixon would frequent. There are photos of him and other interesting folks!
