Sergio's is a longtime favorite in the Glendora area. They have a small indoor dining room. They expanded their dining space by adding a covered patio that is engulfed in plants. Makes a nice place for big parties and shields some of the noise from the highway. We recently went with a big group for a birthday and so we had the chance to try a lot of their dishes.

Sergio's Sign in Glendora

The menu at Sergio's is extensive and contains some real surprises. There's stuff on the menu I have never seen anywhere else and items you rarely see. One of the rarely seen items is the papas tacos - mashed potato deep fried tacos. Some of the other surprises are one-of-a-kind concoctions that the owners probably invented. We tried a couple of them while we were there. I had the Mexican Shrimp and bacon fajitas. Shrimp, onions, peppers, bacon all grilled up fajitas style. Like most things they serve it with their rice and beans, both of which are above average. I am pretty sure the beans are made with lard cause they taste so good. My meal also came with soup or salad and I opted for a nice fresh and tasty bowl of albondigas soup. You also can see the homemade corn tortillas they serve on the side. Very good!

Another unique item that my brother-in-law ordered was the chicken con queso. It consisted of grilled chicken, onions and bacon all covered in melted cheese. Heart attack on a plate, but what a way to go.


My wife can never pass up a good enchilada. She opted for the enchiladas verde. They make a very good green sauce and she especially enjoyed the beans. They have a number of salsas available. They'll serve you the slightly sweet, spicy and peppery one with fresh chips when you arrive but you can also ask for a much hotter red salsa and a green salsa that is almost entirely ground hot green peppers.


My mother-in-law wanted a small plate and thought the little East L.A. tacos would do the trick. It turned out to be more food then she planned on. They serve two traditional street vendor soft tacos wrapped up in aluminum foil with the usual cilantro and onions. They also have the old fashioned lettuce, tomato and cheese tacos dorado.


My sister-in-law had there carne asada burrito which is a real favorite of many of Sergio's fans. It is plenty of food for around $5. All the prices are very reasonable at Sergio's. The most expensive meals run $12.95 and those include soup or salad along with everything else. They also have a very cheap kids menu. We had a little one with us who got the beef taquito with rice and beans.


They have beer, wine and margaritas available, along with soft drinks and juices. Whether authentic or a new creation, all the food we have had at Sergio's has been excellent. In the past I have enjoyed their well made carnitas and the pork chile verde. All of it is highly recommended.
