Son had a sore throat

Had to go to Lourdes for their fabulous soup. Anytime my two boys get sick all they want is the Lourdes chicken soup. It makes them feel better with every bite. It really is the best soup ever.

Love this place, it is not known for the fancy ambiance, but the food is wonderful. I have never been disappointed. And the chicken soup will "cure" any cold!!

I have had some good meals (their chicken soup) and not so good where they messed up my order, made me wait 30 minutes and then tried to blame me for not getting the order right. Clearly they need better order takers that speak better English (hello! it happens to be the predominant language in America…not Espanol). You might get... More

Finally tried this place after hearing much about their chicken soup. It is as advertised, the best in town! Also tried their rolled beef tacos. Just the basics, guacamole and cheese on top. No unwanted lettuce or tomato. Excellent as well! Don't let the lines scare you, they move you through pretty quickly and any wait is worth it!

I love the chicken soup here!! I ordered mine with no onion and extra avocado and its perfect! For some reason I really like the bean and cheese burrito here which is not something I usually order when I'm out. Its simple but really good but you have to add the salsa that comes with the chips not the one... More

Hole in the wall that has lines all day. The soup is the thing to get here. But for traditional Mexican food, its really good. Arguably, the best in Escondido. The salsa has a taste like tomato soup with more of a jalapeño kick rather than a pepper spice taste. The carne asada plate is good , but my favorite... More

After reading all the reviews about how good the chicken soup was here, we decided to give it a try. It was very good and tasty....hit the spot perfectly. Although, my favorite chicken soup is at a restaurant in the solana beach area......this would be a close second. Very friendly staff and super quick service. Make sure to go early,... More

This is for the Shell Station venue on El Norte Parkway. The place is terrific for what they are known for; the chicken soup. There's probably not much I can add to the numerous reviews of that...so... In a nutshell, the chicken soup is indeed very very good and if one spends enough money on their order, a bag of... More

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.
