I discovered this place when we were looking for a new place for brunch. I was amazed at the quality of food - delicious!! the service is top notch and the Mango Margaritas( yes, you can get them by the pitcher) were the best. Sunday Brunch is amazing and the brussell sprouts are the best I've ever tasted. Well Done!!!

Friendly staff, a great variety of real mexican food, gigantic burrito ! The place is very cool with nice pictures and crosses on wall. A big variety of cocktails and hundreds (!) of tequila types (pretty pricey, some 😨).

We sat at the bar, have some cocktails while watching both college football and the Dodgers. They specialize in foods from Oaxaca. It was some of the best Mexican I have had.

We enjoyed our visit to Ortega 120. The food was great with large portions. We tried a tequila flight - the server helped us select one - and we also enjoyed the margaritas.

Authentic, tasty Mexican food, reasonable prices, friendly service. The place was packed at 6 p.m. on a Saturday night so they are clearly doing something right!

We had high hopes after waiting an hour and a half for a table, however, they serve a nice big basket of chips with a very small dish of salsa. The award winning house margarita was fair at best. The enchiladas had good flavor but the beef was a bit dry. Ortega 120 would be OK for a quick bit... More

We were very happy to find this Mexican Restaurant right within walking distance of our hotel - The Best Western Redondo. There was a bright enclosed patio area in the front but we were unable to be seated there since there was a party scheduled. The inside area was darker but was also very nice as was the bar area...
