Great mexican bowls

We sat outside and ate lunch before going to Coronado Island. It was within walking distance from my hotel. It is a large restaurant that has a chip bar to get for your table with different salsas, unlike other restaurants that give you just the house salsa. They have a selection of margaritas to... read more

I stayed at a hotel near by so I decided to stop by and eat here. I ordered the Three Amigos Tacos; they were to die for! The place was fun and they have chips and salsa that you can serve yourself. The ambiance was great, we all enjoyed it. We ordered a Michelada, which is not on the menu.... More

Food was VERY salty. There were 9 of us and more than half said it was saltier than they've ever had. It has a parking lot with valet parking that's free if you eat there which is a plus. Looked like the big lobster buckets were very popular - we didn't have that but if I go again I would... More

We are from Chicago and recently vacationed here. Obviously San Diego is known for Mexican food so that's pretty much all we ate while there. We tried several restaurants and this place had the best tacos, in my opinion, out of all of them. We actually went twice we liked it so much. The first time I actually got the... More

We got four appetizers, and each was fantastic - the Tequila Lime Shrimp, the Ahi Poke, the Cerviche and the guacamole. You will not be disappointed!

We enjoy the beachy feel. The salsa bar is great. Order one of their signature buckets - we almost always order the Original Baja Bucket...you won't be disappointed. We had the Cabo Wabo Margaritas last visit - glad we had Uber!

I ate there on Sunday evening during Cinco de Mayo and it was really busy, but the service was great. I ordered the Lobster tacos and it was way too much. One order of 3 tacos is enough for 2 people. They are very rich in flavor so one is about all I could do. For someone on a low... More

Free chips and salsa bar, very tasty Margaritas. We ate Mexican food, and it was very good. The order of guac was huge. We saw several people next to us order a seafood bucket that looked amazing...might have to try that if we ever come back. Definitely good food and service. Oh, and valet parking was $5.
