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.

Celebrate Mexican Food With Us

 at Sausal el Segundo

At Sausal, we offer a taste-bud tantalizing, doors-thrown-open-to-the-air experience, aaaaaaannnnd we have FUN doing it! 


A wood-burning hearth oven is the centerpiece of our kitchen – providing the signature smoke, char, and caramelized roastiness to our big-flavored dishes. All of our offerings – from the freshly-griddled tortillas to the hearth-roasted meats for our street tacos – from the fruit-saturated sangrias to the unsurpassed scratch margaritas – everything is consciously designed to pack a bold and celebratory punch.


Sausal is South Bay-friendly. We offer genuine hospitality – and a soulful, chef-driven menu. We believe that Mexican-inspired cuisine is THE comfort food of Southern California. Hands down.

Cocktail Excitement

Behind the bar,  it is “game on” with our scratch cocktail program. Bringing a chef’s sensibility to the equation seems to be a natural next step in the evolution of a great mixed spirits program. We emphasize using seasonal farmers’ market fruits, housemade bitters, and infusions to build new and surprising flavor combinations.


Great cocktails require perfect balance. 'Cuz who can say “no” to a not too sweet, not too sour, fresh citrus Margarita?!


We offer Happy Hour every day from 3 PM to 6 PM and special Tequila and Mezcal cocktail and food pairing events. Subscribe to our newsletter for more information!
