Have been going to this restaurant with my family since I was a child. I recently returned after a long time and it was as good as ever! Value is similar to other restaurants in the area and you get a lot of food for your money. My personal favorite is the crab burrito, best burrito I've ever had... read more

Had an excellent dinner here during our stay in Carlsbad. Quick service, despite being very full and the food was great. Very big portions, I'm glad my daughter and I decided to share.

We went there on July 3...granted it was a Friday on a holiday weekend but we had to get there before 6. They do not take reservations. Portions are large. The Fideo is so good I get the large bowl that comes with tortillas. I should have not had the ala carte shredded beef taco...1) too full from fideo 2)... More

We were staying at the Carlsbad Inn and while we waited for our room to be ready we had lunch at Norte. We had the Chicken Salad and it was large and delicious.

Went to the bar before dinner to have a cocktail and was ignored for about 15 minutes. Finally got my margarita which was just ok. They gave others at the bar chips and salsa, but not me. Decided I wouldn't have dinner there ! Won't be back anytime soon.
