Over 92 years ago Jesucita Mijares fled the revolution in Mexico searching for a new life for her family. After settling in Pasadena she opened a small tortilla factory. It quickly became known for its tiny restaurant featuring Jesucitas's original recipes, tortillas, tamales, and sauces made with her metate stone grinder carried from Mexico.

This was our first time here. The service was awesome!! They have a great list of Margaritas and their food options were also extensive. We all loved our choices!

Excellent guacamole. But the main dinner (enchilada and tamale) were virtually flavorless. Sad because the service is truly fabulous.

A good place for Mexican Border food, very busy on the weekend with some different special meals worth trying. The adult drinks are a little light on the alcohol, so order a double. The tacos are well filled with the meat and we like the albondaga soup with lots of vegetables.

Mijares is always on my list to visit when I am in town. The food is excellent, prices moderate and the service is always at least very good, even at busy times. My benchmark for Miexican restaurants is the chili relleno and Mijares sits near the top of my list. Menudo is something you don't see everywhere is Mijares medudo is exceptional- wonderful broth.

Good Mexican food but don't bother ordering a mixed drink other than a margurita because they are light on the pour. I have asked our servers several times about the light pour and they agree that many have asked the same question but the bartenders refuse to adjust. So when I dine here I just skip the mixed drink. I suggest you do the same.

We had a terrible experience at this restaurant. We’ve eaten there many times and each time the service gets slower and worse. This last time our food actually never showed up and we got up and left. In 30 years of dining at restaurants all over the world I’ve never gotten up and walked out without paying. We won’t be back.

Food was very good. Service was slow. We were the first people there; it took about 30 minutes after we ordered for the food to arrive. The restaurant was not crowded.
