Weekend in San Diego

My husband and I had breakfast at Aunt Emma's on Saturday. This was my second visit. I had the cheese omelet with hash browns and my husband had the huevos rancheros with beans and tortillas. The food was good..not great. I had breakfast here with a friend last year and it was great. I really... read more

This restaurant disappointed us in three areas. It was so loud that we couldn't visit at all, and it was hard to hear our waitress. The service was slow and indifferent. And the food was mediocre.

The restaurant is old and noisy. Parking is impossible, so prepare to park at a surrounding hotel or plaza. There is usually a 10 to 20 minute wait to be seated. Service is prompt and friendly. The serving portions are large and the food is somewhat average. Pricing is reasonable and there are coupons to utilize from flyers. I will... More

Breakfast is delicious, inexpensive and on time. It's fun to read the whole menu and see all the choices you get for breakfast; from all American to traditional Mexican breakfast; everyone I know raves about it. Good Service too.

Came in today on a Monday for a late breakfast. I little wait for our food to come but everything was ok... the chilaquiles where very spicy, if you like your eggs sunny side up (and runny) let the waitress know. .. we order them sunny side up and came almost fully cooked. The chorizo was very delicious. Always a... More
