We stopped by for drinks and stayed awhile, due to great drinks and friendly service! I had a virgin frozen margarita- huge and tasty. My husband had his margarita on the rocks and it was equally good. Staff was friendly and knowledgable about La Paz

I was in the mood for some arrachera before returning to San Diego. We first went to Rancho Cocina, but after a five minute wait for anybody to bring us a menu or something we got up and left. We have always good luck at Catrina's. Chips and a spicy bean dip were brought out immediately. My wife had the... More

We were looking for a local place with a lot of caracter and had a great bohemian night. We are vegetarian and found enough options to eat and loved the bohemian ambiance, location and service. La única cosa que debo decir es que la facturación no es rápida todavía no la he recibido.

We intended to eat at El Tupe but found it closed for reservations. So we were hungry when we stumbled upon Catrina's. Food was really nice with generous portions. Great fresh salsa and the guacamole is worth waiting for. Everything we had was fresh and well prepared, and the staff was really friendly (especially Diego). Colourful local patrons if you... More
