Great little mexican place

Just got into town from a long day of traveling and wanted some quick and tasty mexican food. Colima's does that! Lots of options for all and cheap too. We were probably the only english-speakers in the restaurant, and that's a good thing if you want good mexican food!

Great Mexican food with a very fast kitchen. I have never waited more than 5 minutes for anything I have ordered. The wife and I are locals and this is our GO TO place when we want a fast inexpensive meal. It is what it is so if you want a more intimate authentic Mexican dining experience with servers try...

Good local sit down or take out Mexican food. Just a couple blocks from the Oside pier. Tee shirt fancy or just swim suits. Not expensive at all.

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.

This place is YUMMY!! You must order the carne asada burrito, it is huge and so yummy! There are other mexican fast food places around but this place is great for that quick bite. Its not expensive, parking is the only horrible thing here. Parking is where ever you can find it and then walk there. Oh and do not... More
