I love this restaurant. I have rated it before but now they have taken Nachos off the menu . You can ask for them and get them. How could they take off God's greatest menu item????? The waitress was wonderful. She suggested that I could still order them. They were wonderful. Please put them... read more

We really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant in Old Town, first of all this restaurant had it's own parking lot, and it's free. I enjoyed the blackened fish taco, it was one if the best and my husband really liked the lobster dish, their Cadillac margarita was one of the best we've ever had, order your second before you...

We dined here twice while on vacation. We visited the location in the Gaslamp quarter. That whole neighborhood has a fun festive vibe and Rockin Baja fits right in. We started our dinner with guacamole and chips. Very good. Then we ordered the taco trio; asada, shrimp, and lobster. The asada taco was one of the best I ever had.... More

We had lunch here in a recent trip to San Diego. It is a fun, casual atmosphere, and they have a lot of choices on their menu (particularly if you like seafood, which I do not, but my significant other loves it). The service was really good as was the food - I would definitely come back for more.

I quickly did research on a last minute place for lunch in the Gaslamp area. I wanted fabulous food, great location for people watching, and a good vibe! This place didn't disappoint me at all! With so many choices and so little time, making the right decision was important! The taco trio plate is the way to go. You get... More

Really good Mexican food especially if you like seafood and fresh fish. I ordered the lobster lover combo which came a small bowl of lobster corn chowder (yum), a lobster enchilada filled with lobster, cheese and shrimp and a lobster taco. The lobster meat is served San Felipe style. The dinner came with rice and beans. Needless to say it... More

Parking was hard to find and since the parking here was ample we stopped to eat. (We also left our car here and walked around the town). We were here midweek, in the afternoon so not a busy time at all. We were seated immediately. There were tons of people in the restaurant everyone was in the outdoor seating area.... More
