El Amigo #3


Great spot for takeout Mexican food on the line between Torrance and Redondo Beach*. They opened during the Covid-19 lockdown and they’re still here, four years later. And these days there are always people dining in when I go to pick up food. There’s a main room and an enclosed patio. I like their chile relleno, but their enchiladas and tacos are really good too. And their chile verde. And their salsa.

As you might imagine from the name, there are two other locations, El Amigo in Lawndale and El Otro Amigo in Torrance.

Parking is limited: There are maybe 5 spaces in the back, and it’s very tight. Otherwise you have to park on the street. (Don’t park at the dialysis clinic lot next door. There are warning signs all over it.)
