Los Gueros Mexican Restaurant in Monrovia STILL Features Really Good Mexican Food at Really Good Prices  by Bill Coburn

I began writing articles spotlighting restaurants on the SanGabrielValleyMenus.com website in November of 2003.  Shortly after that, the column was picked up by San Gabriel Valley Weekly, and a year later, another newspaper began running the column. This week marks the 70th restaurant spotlight I’ve done, so I decided to check back to the first restaurant I spotlighted, and take another look at an old favorite.

 

Los Gueros Restaurant in Monrovia is a small restaurant, with a large patio dining area. All the indoor seating is in booths, but they are not stationary booths, they can be adjusted for larger parties.  The first time I wrote about Los Gueros, we were impressed with the delicious food, the low prices and the attentive, but not hovering, service.  We’ve eaten there several times in between the first spotlight and this one.  Not much has changed in the nearly two years, despite the fact that there has been a restructuring of the ownership, with former co-owner Danny Castrellon now the sole owner.  

 

In the nearly two years since I first wrote about Los Gueros, the prices haven’t changed at all, which is quite unusual.  The most expensive items, Camarones al Mojo de Ajo and Camarones a la Diabla, are just $9.95.  Combination plates (an a la carte item served with rice and beans) range from single item dishes at $4.95, to two item combos at $5.95 and $6.95, and three item combos at $7.95.

 

When we were seated, we were given fresh hot tortilla chips, with two types of salsa, one a pico de gallo type, the other a hot salsa.  By the time I was on my third chip, I knew that the heat I was feeling from the salsa was more impressive than in most salsas, and I ordered one of the Monday night specials to help keep cool.  On Mondays, Los Gueros serves 99 cent Coronas.  While we’re on the subject of the nightly specials, here they are:  Tuesdays, kids eat free, Wednesdays you can get 99 cent (wine) Margaritas, Thursdays feature 99 cent (wine) pina colatas, Friday nights special is a bucket of Coronitas (small bottle of Corona beer), and on Saturday and Sunday, there are handmade tortillas served from 7am to 2pm (they say they go perfectly with menudo).

 

We also ordered some guacamole, which was made tableside, with our choice of fresh ingredients.  The first time there, we had declined the tableside guacamole, but this time we accepted and it was quite good.  Even I had some, in fact, quite a bit, and I’m not much of an avocado fan.  But it went well with the hot sauce, and I enjoyed it.

 

For dinner, Keelan ordered a Quesadilla, Katie had the Tamale and Chile Relleno combination, and I ordered the albondigas soup and the Camarones a la Diabla.  Keelan enjoyed the Quesadilla, noting that it’s kind of like the Mexican grilled cheese.  Katie was very happy with her combination plate, noting that the chile relleno was deep fried, making it lighter than most, and quite enjoyable.  The albondigas was a very good sizes serving, with several large meatballs, vegetables, and a tasty, spicy broth.  My Camarones had seven medium sized shrimp, lots of onions, and a sauce made using the hot salsa they serve as its base.  I don’t think my little bald head has ever sweat so much as it did that night.  Delicious, hot stuff!!

 

We had flan for dessert, and I think their flan is one of the best I’ve had.  We also tried the bunuelos again, fried flour tortilla with cinnamon, sugar, strawberry sauce and whipped cream.  It too, was quite tasty

 

As I said near the beginning of this article, we’ve eaten at Los Gueros several times, and have always enjoyed our meals.  We’ve tried tacos, enchiladas, carnitas, bean and cheese burritos, and the Camarones al Mojo de Ajo.  The food is consistently good.

 

You can view the Los Gueros menu at www.sangabrielvalleymenus.com/losgueros.htm, or go directly to www.losguerosrestaurant.com.  While you’re there, you can print up a coupon good for a free breakfast, lunch or dinner entrée with purchase of an entrée, up to $9.00 off your check, or a free tableside guacamole.
