Great Food and the Price was Decent Too!

Went here for restaurant week and ordered their original bucket (included shrimp, carne asada, chicken, and lobster and tortillas ). Also came with grilled corn and unlimited rice and beans. The price was only $30 for restaurant week and it also included their tequila lime shrimp as an appetizer... read more

This place never disappoints. We love the atmosphere here. The beers are always cold, the free salsa bar is awesome. And the food is great. We love sitting in the bar area watching sports on TV and listening to the music they have playing. We always feel more relaxed when here. Every time we come to SD, this is one... More

Not far from Bahia Resort so make it a point to visit. Even the beans and rice served with the food was amazing! Plus amazing outdoor seating area!

Food was o.k., relatively cheap. But there's nothing like having someone pester you during a quiet lunch offering to take a picture for "free." Yeah, there's a catch. Said photog will reappear later to show you several different pictures/postcards you can purchase (of course). Thanks, Rockin' Baja! If you are into be hustled during lunch, THIS is your place.

We waited til the last night of our trip to eat here. Wish we would have tried it sooner, would have eaten here more than once! Atmosphere is super fun and they had live music. Loved the salsa bar with 8 different kinds of salsa to pick from. All entrees were great!

Well, ended up here for lunch today and the beer was cold and fresh! Stopped here to talk over some business and grab a bite. The fish tacos were good and the rice & beans were edible. I have to say, if you want better Mexican, there are other places in Old Town. This place is more of a party... More

We had lunch at this place in between a conference at the convention center a couple of blocks down. I had the tacos. I don't remember what the wife ordered. The food was too much tex-mex than mexican. i enjoyed the salsa bar which we wouldn't had known about until we saw several patrons take a beeline to the bar.... More
