Only thing open after 7pm on a Monday

This is a combo restaurant - half Mexican half Pizza. We decided on Mexican. Our tacos were good. It was hot and humid and we ate really fast to get out of the heat.

It was late and I was hungry so I drove down Washington avenue past the police station and then turned into a centre. I walked in and there were five or six bench tables with one family. They have a great range of mexican food and pizzas. I saw a 20 inch pizza come out and it looked great. I... More

Delicious traditional pizzas, large variety of Mexican dishes and one of the best cheeseburgers in town. Lots of value for your money. I especially like the taco salad, the carne asada burrito and the pizza. Family friendly dining room, very nice outside seating, which is also dog friendly. Hard working and pleasant servers.

Honestly we only went here because it was about the only place open on a Tuesday evening in Julian. I had heard it was pretty good, but as we drove up to it and went in, we were having second thoughts. The dining room and atmosphere are compatible with a 'locals' hangout and not geared to tourists. Order your food... More

Not much atmosphere but the food was good. I had chicken nuggets and my husband had chili rellenos. We were both satisfied with the portion and taste.

Enjoyed the soft taco with fish and a Bohemia Beer . The place is just down the road from the Julian Musem by the Sheriff substation. You could do two fish tacos here a la carte and a beer for just over $10...a deal in Julian. The Calzone looked great too!

Can't tell you if the food is any good, I could not get past the awful customer service at the counter. We walked out, will not return.

Being a pet owner, I have to spread the word when I find a restaurant that will allow your pets. This little place in Julian has just a few tables inside but most are outside - and why not? Such a pretty town so everything should be outside (my opinion). Pets can join you at your table & the wait... More
