We used to go to the La Mesa restaurant when we lived in the area. This was an amazing dinner with great margaritas! I would definitely recommend to anyone in the area.

I have been eating in this restaurant, whenever I visit El Cajon, for a number of years. I have always loved their food (Enchilada Sauce is great) but it had become a bit tired and scruffy looking. They have now remodelled and opened up the restaurant space and put in a bar area. I ate their twice during my last... More

Other ratings of Marieta's motivated us to go out of our way to try them. We made reservations, but it was unnecessary. The restaurant has a lot of booths and tables so there was plenty of room. Surprisingly, most patrons were gone by 8 pm. Service was a bit slow and inattentive. We ordered margaritas, which were average at best.... More

We eat regularly at Marieta's in Santee but occasionally find ourselves in El Cajon. We have stopped to eat this Marieta's and found it just as good as what we consider ours! Great Mexican food, very good menu and always great staff! Prices fair and quality of food way above good!

We have been eating here for year and the good and service couldn't be better. The chips and salsa are amazing and make sure you order a pitcher of margaritas for the table while you're there.

We have been coming here for about 15 years and the food has always been excellent. Prices are very competitive and the service is always top notch. The owner has just re-modeled and opened a "Bar area" that seems to be doing a very well. He recently combined the two dining rooms and made one much larger and open area.... More

I am 21 and I'm pretty sure I've eaten at this restaraunt over 200 times. It is amazing. I always get the same exact thing.... bean and cheese burrito with enchilada sauce on top and sour cream on the side. IT'S AMAZING. The original margaritas are to die for.
