The food is very good (I cleaned my plate of chilaquiles in salsa verde), the coffee (cafe de olla) is excellent and not-too-sweet but you can taste (and smell) the cinnamon in it, and the service is excellent... read more

We heard good reviews from TV and some on Yelp and decided we would drive the 2 hours to eat here for their Chilaquiles. We were told that this dish was great. We ordered Chilaquiles with Verde Sauce and had Punos, had the Cofe de Olla. The food was only so so, the chilaquiles was just ok. The Potatoes were... More

Service by the owners makes you feel like you're eating at their house. Food is good, I tried every item on the menu, my favorite is the "Punos" and "Steak Picado". Mexican coffee is the best in San Diego. Very clean restaurant, problably the cleanest meaxican restaurant in all of San Diego/Chula Vista. Try their pinapple chessecake, cheesecake factory has...

Went there for the first time. We are familiar with the other restaurants in the chain. The food was great. In time for the lemon festival in Chula Vista. Had great view of the performers. We'll be back.

There could be better chilaquiles in the S.D. area, but we have not found it. Chilaquiles sound like a simple thing to produce, but the real thing with great salsa and eggs is rare. This is the place! They cookup plenty of good looking food, but that is for others. We go here for our first breakfast on out trips... More
