Ask why they don't display their health department score. Being from Tucson and a real fan of Mexican cuisine, I was drawn in. It took forever to get my food and when I did I was not impressed. I will say the salsa was good but avoid the Caren Asada!

My husband and I like to eat and drink our way through San Diego. Taco surf is always a must. We never skip this place when we are in town. The California burrito is to die for. I always enjoy the crispy tacos. The beef is my favorite, but I've also had the potato and chicken which were also amazing.... More

In for my daily dose of Mexican while visiting the beach. On a quiet weekday lunchtime, the line was out the door. We placed our orders for some combo plates, grabbed a table and admired the owner's surfboard collection as we waited for our meals to be called. Locals and visitors alike flock to this casual storefront eatery. Their taco... More

Laid back. Very interesting place. Food was very very good and not expensive at all. Went more than once. Yummy. Even tried to bring some of their spicy salsa home to Canada but it spilled in bag. Too bad because it was so good.

Went there with a crowd of US relations while visiting from UK. We thought it was excellent value, very nice food, nicely presented, vast portions. Nothing not to like, unless you prefer spending loads of money in a gourmet restaurant, which of course it ain't.
