Enjoyed some absolutely fabulous Mexican food at Panama Joes in Long Beach.  This is one of the best bars and restaurants on 2nd Street and should be on every ones list when visiting Belmont Shores. The Mexican food here is off the charts good and the place throws a big party for NFL Football games with the waiters and waitresses wearing jerseys from their favorite teams.  As we walked into the dining area,  I saw a tower of beer with its own tap on a table and thought it was cool.  Had to order one of those first.  The Football Pabst Blue Ribbon Tower was $20.  Cold beer and Mexican food.  I was in heaven.  I enjoyed a Shredded Beef Taco and Chicken Enchilada with Beans and Rice ($9.50).  This was one of the best plates of Mexican food I have ever eaten.  A plate like this in Hawaii would be $20 and tasteless.  I savored every single bite and even finished off the rice and beans which were delicious.  As I moaned with happiness, two other people enjoying the Chili Relleno, Taco and Enchilada Combination ($13) were both saying this is the best Mexican food they have ever eaten.  I was blown away by the price of their triple combination plate at $13.  What a bargain.  The table shared Chips and Salsa and Ceviche De Pescado ($13).  The Ceviche was fresh and was filled with flavor.  I ordered some Taquitos for the table ($6).  The Taquitos were awesome.  Three corn tortillas filled with seasoned chicken.  I say seasoned because when you buy Taquitos in Hawaii the chicken is usually bland and tasteless.  These Taquitos were stuffed with a good amount of chicken and covered in Guacamole and Sour Creme.  The Taqueria Carnitas ($6) were another hit.  Three Carnitas Tacos that were putting a big smile on one of the diners face.  The Chicken Tinga Burrito ($7.50) looked a little plain when presented but again was packed with flavor.  Several diners shared the Caesar Salad ($8.50) and the kitchen was happy to split the salad onto several plates.  The Tacos Pescado ($11.50) received another accolade as "best Mexican food ever".  The food and prices here are amazing.  You cannot go wrong at Panama Joes and you wont find a better deal on price from San Diego to San Francisco when dining out.
