Yes the chicken soup is great but that's only the beginning of the excellent eating adventure offered at Lourdes. Hands down one of the best Mexican restaurants in all of Southern California. Really.

Small restaurant in Old Historic Escondido, limited seating. They serve excellent tradtional Mexican Fare, however their homemade bowl of chicken soup is amazing and what most drive miles to eat.

The menu said "the best chicken soup in town" and they nailed it. Great family owned place but you will not be sorry if you get this fantastic soup! I really think I got an entire chicken breast in my bowl alone! Most of the business seems to be phone order & take out but they have a few tables.... More

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...

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
