Reviewed 12 January 2012

We visited some friends and they took us to Flamingos. We eat mexican food all the time and we were very impressed with the taste and quality of the food. We also thought the staff was very friendly and the prices were extremely reasonable. A great place for families. Margaritas were good.

My family and I have been eating at Flamigos ever since they opened at this location, years ago. My father, when he visits from Missouri, always asks to eat there as he loves their Enciladas (sp) and Frijitas. Their chips and salsa are sooooo good and the sauces on everything are the best. The wait staff is the friendliest I have ever had at any restaurant and they really care about you!
Some day when I move out of Southern California, this is one of the few places I will really miss.

My family and i moved from Redondo Beach and we found Flamingo's it reminded me of my close friends who also owns mexican restraunts in the Beach area. The food,drinks and chips are Awesome but, the Family who owns and worked so hard there everyday is what this place is all about. If you want great food and enjoy a little heart to heart about football,basketball then call up albert and go on down.

We love you Franco Family

We have made it a point to eat at Flamingo's at least once a month for the past several years. Having tried Mexican restaurants throughout Orange County, this place has my vote for the best food and best service at great prices.

This is a family run place and the love of food and people shows in every meal. Flamigos is very busy, but there is seldom a wait. Once seated the house chips and salsa come fast and are refilled often. They are amonst the best I have ever had -- hot, fresh chips and a salsa that starts mild and gets spicier as you go. They have some creative and tasty appetizers, but really the main courses are so big that there is no real reason to load up.

Speaking of the main course, we love the carne asada plate, mostly because it comes with an awesome cheese enchilada, beans, rice and fresh tortillas on the side. The Chile Verde and Chili Colorado are excellent and can also be stuffed inside a burrito or chimichunga. The soups are great too. My one complaint would be that the portions of the seafood dishes are small, but the other dishes are plentiful (and so good!).

In sum, this is one of our favorite places. It is not fancy. It does not try to turn Mexican food into a gourmet dining experience with fruit salsas and multi-colored tortillas. It is a warm, local place serving simple, tasty and authentic food. Hope you agree!
