Hmm, just got a bad review at for Mambo's Cafe. I wonder if it's just someone steaming or if it's true.

If anyone has been there let me know...

You can't hate on Mambo's. Service gets busy, but **DAMN** the food is TIGHT.

Mambo's was one of my favorite out of the 12 I've been to in the LA basin. I met Raul Jr. and Raul Sr. while I was there--both were as nice as can be. The civeche was awesome. I hate flan but my friend talked my into trying the flan at Mambos--it was awesome. I would go back there in a nanosecond. I'm sorry that someone had a bad experience there, but I REALLY like the place.
