After a long fight from Boston to San Diego, Las Olas is where we go to eat!!! Every time the guacamole and chips and salsa are a welcomed sight at the table along with cold beer or margaritas while we wait for our entrees. We have been doing this for years when we come out to visit family several times... More

Las Olas is always a favorite place...I love the margaritas and the chips and salsa are the best! The location makes it ideal for dinner after a day at the beach. Make sure to ask about the Margarita of the Month.

Love this place when we travel to San Diego. It is always a "must stop by". The bartenders are the best and so are the margaritas.

3 of us stopped for lunch, the service was good and we enjoyed the atmosphere.......festive but not too overwhelming. Chips and Salsa were fresh, and didn't have to ask for additional. Fish tacos on the lunch menu were pretty good, not the best we've had, but still felt they were worth ordering. My standard question is: Would I go back... More

I've been going to Las Olas for many years. I recommend the chic tostado! Tortilla is crisp and all the fixings are fresh! Goes great with a Cadillac margarita!
