Mmmm delish and great drinks.

I loved the ambiance of this place. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and the music was great. The salsa bar was good and the blood orange margaritas were excellent.

Met a group here for a birthday celebration dinner. Started with a nacho bar- chips and all the toppings. How great is that? Cold beer and Nachos. The fried calamari appetizer was super! The blackened fish taco looked good. Friends got the fish and chips. OMG, they looked amazing! I got the ahi poke fish tacos, which were good. And... More

One of the first Mexican you would come across when you walked into Gas Lamp area from San Diego Convention Centre. Luis is the best in here! We had a taste of great Mexican cuisine.

We visited this place thanks to the reviews on tripadvisor. The restaurant has a good atmosphere. We ordered Baja Bucket for two and it was amazing, they are huge portions and you could have as many nachos and dips as you wanted. The fish was all really fresh and tasted great. We couldn't fault it. In the 3 weeks we... More

Been here before, wasn't impressed by food tremendously. However, I will be going to almost all Gulls games! This is the only place to view every San Diego Gulls game on TV (at least, officially that is). In addition, they have a special cocktail the GULLitine which gives 1$ to youth hockey, so come down for some games and drinks,... More

After a disappointing lunch at Barra Barra, we started walking around Old Town and found this enormous gem. With decor that is reminiscence of an old Tiki lounge/Indiana Jones Movie, we went straight to the bar and started with shots of Casa Azul (tequila). The set up inside is between sports bar (tvs everywhere) and small club (nostalgic music videos... More
