We walked to Colima's from our hotel and found it packed at 8:30 p.m. on a Monday night. There were many menu choices but the service was quick and the price was very reasonable. I had fish tacos, my teenage son had a California burrito (could only finish half because it was so big) and his friend had a burrito... More

Colima's is one of those places that every Marine who has been stationed aboard Camp Pendleton will tell you about. The food is good(there are better) and it is in a great location. The restaurant is never empty and the service is quick and friendly. The selection is abundant and can be confusing at times. If you find yourself staring... More

For take out Mexican the food is average. We are used to a similar restaurant that cooks with a little heathier ingredients and we could taste the difference. But the location is really convenient to our condo and we will be back. The people are exceptionally nice and we like the condiments bar because the hot sauce is ready to... More

Sit down Taco shop, famous with locals for big burritos. My favorite is the Carne Asada or the shrimp burrito. They do have a lot of choices, Not the finest cuisine but good and very good value with very fast service. Gets busy.

If you've been looking for a good California Burrito or a Carne asada burrito, Colimas is the place to go get it.

Please. This is the best Mexican restaurant in Oceanside? Is everyone sure they are talking about the same place? I went to the rundown restaurant and three people were in the restaurant. I ordered the chicken tacos. They came quickly. The hard tacos were greasy but fresh and had a crisp, fresh taste, in spite of the grease. The refried... More

Good food near the Surf Museum and coffee and dessert at PierView Coffee a half block away. Nothing fancy, just a good place to stop for lunch.
