    Thumbs up La Choza - Huntington Beach

    7402 Edinger.

    Corner of Edinger and Gothard, in the space where Super Antojitos was and where Artist Seafood was.

    Seriously, some of the best Chile Rellenos around as well as the Chili Verde. The Chile Verde is not too spicy, but has a lot of flavor.

    The Relleno is perfect, and is NOT smothered in sauce, so the batter is nice and puffy.

    Not only that, there are the homemade tortillas.. enough said, with a little butter and ENJOY!!!!

    Very clean flavors all the way through.

    Been there a few times, and loved it every time (except the barbacoa.)

    The food is WAY BETTER than Mario's.

    Well, as you are probably aware, if it is the old guy that is making the margaritas (or the MARIOITAS!!!), then Mario's Margaritas > La Choza. I was at Mario's once, and the old guy wasn't there. That was the only time i was disappointed in the margaritas at Marios.


    So, in summation..

    if you want to get really trashed on the 'ritas, then Mario's is the place. If you are looking for better food, then La Choza it is.

    As I said before, there is just something cleaner tasting at La Choza. Also (again), the little old ladies making the corn tortillas ROCK!!!!! Thick, warm... ah ****, I may have to go there again this week.

    3 marioita's and I thank the heavens that I live right across the street.

    Items I love at Marios....

    Chips and Salsa-Thin hot tasty chips with the creeping spicyness of the salsa.

    Cheese Enchiladas-Great Sauce. Great Enchiladas.

    Tamales- Dont know what Marios does but their tamales are the best Ive had.

    Cheese Enchiladas-Great Sauce. Great Enchiladas. Haven't had the Enchiladas in a while. I am more of a Relleno person

    Tamales- Dont know what Marios does but their tamales are the best Ive had. Haven't had them there
    Try the Chili Verde or the Chicken in some sort of sauce (I forget.. long weekend!!!) at La Choza..

    That has always been my thought. The food is good, but it's not the best. The Marioitas do make meal, and Ramon (aka the old guy) is the best.

    Maybe we should try this place out friday. At least 1 margie and some nachos or something.

    I'm hungry.

    You guys suck.

    I'll have to try that place the next time I'm over there reminiscing about the good old days at Side-by-side/Skate Zone...
