    Every sandwich we tried here has been great. Personal favorite: Salmon + Cream Cheese with capers. Yum! The Carne Asada is also very popular. Make sure you get the Red Fries as your side too!

    The address says Montebello, but it's in Monterey Park. Get the frescas (mint watermelon!) and the yummy sandwiches (I had La Diabla - Jalapeno AND Habanero!)

    If you can take the heat then order the Ahogada. If you can't, then get my 2nd favorite torta here, the Mojito.

    It's not your typical torta place. They have various specialty/trendy tortas to choose from. My favorite is El Ranchito- slightly spicy with nopales! Read more

    Milanesa is one of the best, hands down. Crispy breaded meat and the soft bread go together sooo well.

    Good bread is absolutely essential to a good sandwich and this bread is GREAT!!! Sourdough rolls, perfectly suited for absorbing all of the juices from these sandwiches.

    The Carne Asada was dry and scarce: my sandwich was mostly lettuce! They must have forgotten the pico de gallo. Try the Mojito (a bit on the sweet side) or Ahogada (spicy!) instead.
