They has me from the start with the giant tortillas and spicy in-house made salsa. Mexican food done well with a pleasant atmosphere and good service.

I've loved Super Mex for four decades. The food is traditional and wonderfully tasty, the margaritas are effective and delicious, service is great and friendly. A neighborhood hangout that's great for tourists too, Super Mex downtown is the original and still the best!

If you are around Long Beach area, this is a MUST diner restaurant that should not be missed out. You will sing "I'm in heaven" while dining there. Absolutely one of the best food we've ever had with reasonable prices and ever smiling staff.

Sometimes you just want a good Mexican meal in a friendly place for a decent price. This was it for me. Cheap, cheerful, decent salsa, fun mural, great location with easy parking. And the food was great. Just what I wanted.

I grew up in Texas and So Cal so I love good Mexican food. Unfortunately there's not much of it in Tallahassee. So it's a treat to try places out when traveling. Went within two friends and it was worth the walk. The cheese and onion enchiladas was prepared well and very tasty. The chile relleno was outstanding! And the... More

Now serving margaritas! Yay! The front patio remodel will soon be completed that will give it an open-air dining area. Food is good, kitchen is fast. It's a local favorite!

Had dinner here last month with 3 friends and had a nice evening of friendly service and satisfying food...I notice the cops eating there so it must be ok....We had a variety of things and it was all hot and tasty. The waiter even remembered my friends from living across from the restaurant 14 years ago...good value for your dollar!!

Every time I am in Long Beach I visit Super Mex. It's delicious! The carnitas or shredded beef tacos are my favorite! Great Salsa and you can even get it to go. I usually visit the Belmont Shores location but they are all good.

We ate in the bar, which has more ambiance than the restaurant section. The menu is extensive with reasonable prices. I opted for a combo plate: Chile Relleno and a beef enchilada with the usual beans and rice. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. I love Chile Rellenos but this one is different. The menu calls it spicy and they... More

Great good for the price. The menu is huge and has a great variety. I eat there a few times a month, always great service and I know what to expect. The super Mex burrito is the bomb!
