Enjoy Mexican Cuisine at Sausal El Segundo

One of the Best El Segundo Restaurants

What’s in a name?

SAUSAL (saw-oo-SAL) = Willow (in Old Spanish vernacular)


SAUSAL is named after Rancho Sausal Redondo [Round Willow Ranch], the vast farmstead that once encompassed El Segundo and most of L.A.’s  South Bay.


The name SAUSAL honors the deep multi-cultural palate of Southern California. Our menu borrows inspiration from the foundational elements of Rancho cooking: Wood Fire, Smoke, and Slow-Roasting. It celebrates the bold flavors of Mexican cuisine, and just as importantly, it revels in our contemporary farmers’ market bounty – where fresh vegetables and produce are given a more prominent place at the table.
