“My favorite Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This casual eatery is always on our list when we are entertaining friends from out of town. The margaritas are very good, chips and salsa outstanding, and always a fun, beach vibe. Its always busy which is a good sign....and lots of parking behind the restaurant. Never disappoints!

“Best Cadillac Margaritas in Town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I have to admit that I'm a frequent customer at Los Olas. There are 2 Los Olas restaurants in North San Diego County, with a third restaurant slated to open in Point Loma, near downtown San Diego/airport area. The flame roasted chili rellenos are awesome, coupled with a few cadillac margaritas...... you'd swear you're south of the border under an umbrella on a beach!
