    I've had a lot of Mexican food before, including the purported best of Los Angeles. Chinellos II has quickly found itself to be uncontested by my standards. Chicken Quesadilla: open-faced thick tortilla--lightly grilled, a light base of melted cotija cheese, grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato. Filling, not greasy. Taco Al Pastor: one of the most delicious marinated pork street-style tacos, two regular soft tortillas, thick and generous meat, onions, cilantro. Again, not greasy, which is atypical. Taco Carne Asada: same as the Al Pastor, but less flavor because it is straight la parrilla (grilled), not commonly marinated. A red and green (tomatillo) salsa accompanies the meal. Both are incredibly well-made. Neither are over-spiced or too hot. The red salsa resembles a salsa de chile de arbol, but the flavor is balanced and retains a tomato taste, without the slightly bitter/alkaloid taste of the pepper being prepared quemada. The green salsa is slightly sweet and very tangy, which is on target. The restaurant shares the unit with a small co-owned grocery. The staff is considerate and wouldn't let me pay until I finished my meal. I will be coming back and likely referring interested friends. This restaurant has exceeded my expectations, not like El Aguila, but that's another conversation for another time.

    Loved it.

    I have only ordered twice so far by. The first time I had a chicken quesadillas which was very good and filling. The second (today) I had the chilaquiles with chicken. It was delicious and spicy. Portion was big. Customer service was pleasant both times. I haven't had anything else on the menu, do wish their menu had more selections. ie mole, tamales. I had only delivered. Haven't gone their to dine.
