The food that we tried was flavorless and dry. while the service was friendly, I wouldn't say efficient. The atmosphere is very loud, and the bar service is especially slow and unfriendly. The only thing I could see people wanting to come here for is for the outdoor patio for margaritas.

I like the Carlsbad Barrio because it's in walking distance of the beach but feels like Cabo San Lucas or a cleaner Puerto Vallarta... Try Lola's Market for a chille relleno, scrambled egg, cheese and salsa Fresca breakfast burrito cooked kitchen-style right before your eyes. Or maybe try El Puerto for the fish burrito and quesadilla... be sure to get... More
