Having a cold is not the only time I find myself here, however when I do have a cold I am almost always here for the Chicken Soup! I don't know that it really possesses all the magical powers of healing which some claim, however I can't say for sure! What I do know is that it is delicious and... More

I'm a gringa and have been getting chicken soup here for more than 10 years. I usually get it to take out, cause it's a bit of a hole in the wall restaurant and usually crowded. I haven't eaten much else here so can't say one way of 'tother about enchiladas etc. They are experts at wrapping everything individually (onions,... More

Had been hearing about this place for a while now. Mostly about their chicken soup. Eventually decided to try it and were not amazed by their soup. Also ordered a couple of tamales and were disappointed at their quality (taste, massive amount of dough versus meat). We likely will not return there just for the chicken soup alone, but maybe...

This little hole in the wall Mexican Restaurant is just the best! If you ever feel a cold coming on, or need some homemade comfort soup - this is your place! They serve the best Homemade Chicken soup - complete with cilantro and Avocado, with a side of tortillas! Their Carne Asada French fries a really tasty too! We eat... More

The reviews on Chicken Soup are dead on! The soup is Excellant! The Carnitas and Fish Tacos were great too. The prices are affordable. We were going to eat here a week ago and ended up eating at a Mexican place down the road. That place cost us $100 for our family of four and we left unsatisfied. Lourdes cost... More

Hector and his wife built a cult. Seriously! I have been following them since 1996. When my son was born 15 years ago, Hector sent my favorite Chicken Soup to the hospital (his wife's recipe!). I now live in Minnesota but stop there every chance I am in San Diego. I dream of the chicken soup and now my son... More

This place is famous for it's chicken soup and I would stick with that. Other items are okay but some other Mexican restaurants do a better job.

Lourdes has good mexican food. If you go there, it is a must to order the Chicken Soup to either have it there or take it home. Our son and his wife got us started in several years ago. It is always something we have before leaving town. Of course there are other things to choose from, but don't forget... More

Stopped in after a business meeting and had the chicken soup and a shredded beef burrito. Both were fantastic! The chicken soup was loaded with white meat. I had a cold and it really hit the spot. The place was packed with locals. I will make sure to eat here again the next time I am in the area.

This is my favorite place to get Mexican. They serve almost everything under the sun, including a chicken soup to die for. All thumbs up.
