We all had adobada fries after a drunken evening. Delicious! I don't recommend the large adobada fries, small is a good big portion. Unless you're sharing of course. Good, fast Mexican food. It's a local popular place.

This place was wonderful. Very authentic Mexican "fast food." The carne asada tacos were great! I didn't get very adventurous but I did sample the tongue tacos and was surprised by how good they were too. It got pretty busy around dinner-time, but well-worth the wait! Very affordable too. I'll be interested to try their other locations.

Yes we did have to wait in a long line while it was like 90 in the place but the tacos made up for it. The cooks behind the grills are working their butts off to keep the line moving but this is a hot spot. Don't expect anything fancy.

Food is flavorful greasy tasty greatness, but restaurant is. Way too breezy and cold not to mention uncomfortable. Tip.. The abobada is great, ask for hand made tortillas with tacos

This place was recommended by the hotel staff. The taco shop was very similar to a Tijuana taco place. The tacos were about cheap, and very tasty. The workers were friendly. The atmosphere was friendly. The place was relatively clean. However, for those who never were in Mexico, this place may seem a bit foreign.

I was in Chula Vista for a week for work, I asked the people in the office where the best tacos in town were. They were Mexican, so I figured they would know. They pointed me to this place. I never had a mula or heard of it before. I felt adventurous and ordered one. Well, that turned into 4.... More

Tijuana style tacos in chula vista. The tacos al pastor is probably the most popular but they also have asada, lengua, and more. Unlike in TJ its a bit pricey at 2$ a taco but they are good. It gets packed during the late night drunken munchies hour so you might have to wait in line!

I never knew what authentic mexican food was until I ate here. The tacos are so tasty and the meat is very tender. Definately worth the money.
