We took our family there for a get together both the adults and the kids were very happy with the food, the mole sauce in particular was very well done with delicious subtle flavors as promised and they had no problem handling a gluten-free request. They were very understanding of the kids who were able to play a little around our table as we were there early and they had enough space to do this without disturbing other diners. We did notice that there can be a draft from the AC so make sure you do sit directly under a vent if you are sensitive to such things... Overall we would definitely go again.

The atmosphere is casual, service friendly, food very good. They display some of the dishes near the entrance so you can see what the dishes look like. The menu was varied as was the drink menu. They are also flexible in letting you choose your own combinations. I had the crab enchilada and almond chicken which was boneless and fork tender. The salsas were delicious, 2 kinds green and red. I also ordered the coconut flan, LOVED IT! I'll definitely be going back to try their other dishes, especially the mole which is entirely house made (not from a can).

Nice little Mexican restaurant
I hadn't noticed this restaurant at the corner of San Antonio & El Camino Real -- found it via OpenTable. Small but nice. Good service. We went in after the LA Art & Wine Festival. Waiter was attentive, service was quick, food was excellent. We will definitely return here.

Mexican with top-notch flavors
I have been coming to Estrellita's since 1978 and have never been disappointed. Family-owned with inspired flavorful Mexican dishes. If you like mole, you have to try theirs.

Great Mexican Food
If you want the best mole - try here. We had a group of six - and everyone was very pleased with their food. One disappointment was they were out of sopa's - appetizer that we love. Didn't quite understand why since it wasn't very crowded -
Service is pretty slow, and could be better.
