So do I really want to tell everyone about this place...hmmmm. If I do it will be swamped and I won't be able to just walk up a grab some of the BEST and most imaginative street tacos this side of the International boarder. If I don't then they won't continue to grow and maybe expand thus giving me more... More

Love the concept of Puesto - fresh hand made tacos wraps and the freshest of ingredients made daily. Love how the veggies are part of the kitchen design. This is a place for everyone - with something for everyone. Great beer on tap and friendly customer centric service. And best of all, you cannot beat the price!

Carne asada all the way!!! They melt cheese on a grill and wrap the meat inside! Yum!!!!! Plenty of seating. The chips and guac basket was out of this world! Very friendly staff also. Wish we had one in seattle!

Nice alternative to the traditional fast food Mexican. I had two tacos, chicken and pork. I liked the freshness of the ingredients and the selection. Great taste too. We aren't lucky enough to have this type of option at home.

I highly recommend eating at Puesto for some delicious clean Mexican food. They use good quality meats and other ingredients. We tried several different tacos (and the 6 different salsas) and loved them all. Excellent wait staff.

We drove to this restaurant after reading the trip adviser reviews--and we were delighted! We based our whole vacation on trip adviser reviews and cannot complain at all! Write reviews and help fellow travellers! This was a great restaurant :)

Hub got 2 tacos: 1 pork carnita, 1 carne asada (beef). He liked both, but really loved the pork carnita. I had 2 tacos: 1 pork carnita & 1 chicken al pastor. excellent... both of them. We also got the chips/salsa/guacamole basket. Very skimpy portion of salsa (don't know if you could have had more - we didn't ask!). LOVED... More

This was probably one of the best meals that I have ever had for under thirty bucks in California!!! I had two tacos and a margarita. My husband had three tacos and beer. The pork taco and the shrimp were my favorite but all were very very good. They will probably eventually need to add more space!! You must go... More

The food at this place was exactly what we were searching for when we went out to look for Mexican food in SD. It was fresh, really tasty and made to order but quick. The soft taco order comes w/ 2 or 3 tacos and my husband and I shared these: one was chicken, one was beef and the other... More

Fresh ingredients and not a tub of lard in sight, this Mexican restaurant serves healthy food at reasonable prices. Located one block off Girard on Wall Street, it's convenient to the heart of La Jolla. I had two salmon tacos. If hungry, I'd recommend getting three. Salsas and condiments are not run of the mill; caveat - they are hot/picante.... More
