Local fresh-Mex chain serves Baja-style food, with vegetarian and low-carb options. – The Scene
White-tiled tables and green plastic chairs fill the covered indoor-outdoor dining room. Half-walls allow in the breeze on sunny days, and plasticine curtains can be drawn to shut out rain. Worker bees and families flock here during the midday lunch rush and for inexpensive dinners. Counter service adds to the relaxed environment.
Priding themselves on the motto "we don't serve fast food, we serve fresh food as fast as we can," this quality taco stand is known for ample portions, freshly made tortillas, and burritos packed so full of prime ingredients there is usually no room for rice-and-bean fillers. The grilled carnitas quesadilla is stuffed with flavorful pork, Jack and cheddar cheese. Tender shrimp, guacamole and cheese fill the San Felipe burrito--topping any burrito with rich red mojado sauce turns it into an oversized enchilada. Meatless nature's grill dishes, like the crispy-shelled tostada, brim with a mix of zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, peppers and onions.
great salsa bar and tortillas – The only porblem with poquito mas, is the inconsistency. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this place. But about half the time i don't know what to expect. Sometimes it's GREAT, sometimes it's not. I always get the steak burritos, which are amazing. go there for steak burritos, carnitas are disappointing.
Good fresh mexican food – I like this place. it's good. the burritos are good. So are the tacos and the salsa. Yum yum, salsa and burritos and tacos. i get beef. it's good. chicken is good, too...not as good as beef, though. the shrimp tacos were expensive and tiny...good, but not a lot of food for the money. overall it's good. The ambiance is typical of an upscale fast food chain, and it is very clean, which is always good. In conclusion, I would have to just sum it up by adding that this place is good.
Best Burrito's -- "Fresh food served fast" – Not a bad thing on the menu and most locations include an array of beers. Can't go wrong here. Always fresh ingrediants and fairly fast service.
great cheap, fresh cali-mex – If you have a craving for fast, cheap, fresh mexican food, this is one of the best places on the westside. Imagine a "baja fresh" but 100X better. I love the Shrimp San felipe Burrito - the shrimp they use are perfectly cooked and very large for a "fast" mexican place. Their salsas are also great...
Great shrimp burritos! – The choices of salsas are great and their burritos are HUGE! The prices are pretty reasonable. The booths are large which is nice.
Try the shrimp burrito – Hard to believe a fast food palce can make something as flavorful and authentic-tasting as this. Nice salsa selection, too.
It's JUST okay – So I've been to this place a few times and I guess it's just okay. There was a long line when I got there and only 1 cashier. HELLO!! You're supposed to be this great place so let's anticipate a crowd during lunch and open up another register okay!?!
Best "fast" Mexican food ever. – Excellent Mexican food made with fresh ingredients and an equally impressive salsa bar.
Fast Fresh Mexican – Poquito Mas puts out quality "California Mex" food with fresh ingredients quickly and efficiently. They have a salsa bar with various types of salsas, again all very fresh, and jalapenos, onions, and radishes as well. The food is not 100% authentic but very tasty. It's also inexpensive. At the location on Westwood you can even sit oustide. I am a fan!
