“Great Service”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This place was pretty good. We had the flautas & carnitas. The carnitas were awesome but the rice was slightly bland. It was cooked well just needed a bit more flavor. The guac was also bland but I added the salsa to it & all was resolved. Flautas were super yummy with the revised guac! Easy to find location and the service was great! A few friends ordered the burritos and I will say they are huge. They enjoyed what they ordered as well. The Sangria was ok but the guys enjoyed the beer. The beer mug are large as well! Fun little place to have a quick bite at a reasonable price & I will return.

“Needs to be spruced up...”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

The food is fair, the workers are very friendly & greet you well. I think they really need to do a

better job in cleaning the place.

“So glad we stopped!”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

Was walking around Old Pasadena and wanted really good Mexican food. Googled and Chiquita Bonita had great reviews. Drove the 4 miles and found the little hole in wall. No idea how people found this place, but glad they did. Had a pork burrito that was fantastic! The refried beans and homemade salsa and guac were great too. The place is rundown, but the food was excellent. If I lived here I'd eat here regularly.
