First visit here. Chicken soup consisted of big pieces of chicken breast with diced white onion, cilantro and Mexican rice in a flavorful broth. Soup would be improved by adding carrots and fresh oregano; nevertheless, I still recommend it. Soup was accompanied by a single, freshly hand made and delicious flour tortilla. The carne asada quesadilla was filled with sour... More

The carne Asada tacos are very flavorful and meat is soft. Lots of food and well priced. Very fresh! The corn tortillas are perfect, hold up for entire meal.

Lourdes is a small Mexican restaurant in Escondido. They have a wonderful chicken soup that has rice and guacamole and they serve it with tortilla. Definitely worth a visit for a nice lunch. They also serve taco etc but I have only had their soup.

Their bowl of soup is the best - chunks of light meat chicken with rice, spices, avocado, onion and broth. Sure helps when we aren't feeling well!

This is a very simple eating place but extremely popular because the food is good. Parking is a nightmare and atmosphere is non existent but I continue to get the chicken soup to go because it is so unique.

Always great to bring home hot chicken soup on a cold and rainy day. Chicken soup is the best, with the flour tortillas. Call ahead with your order and they have it ready for pickup.

Had to go to Lourdes for their fabulous soup. Anytime my two boys get sick all they want is the Lourdes chicken soup. It makes them feel better with every bite. It really is the best soup ever.

Love this place, it is not known for the fancy ambiance, but the food is wonderful. I have never been disappointed. And the chicken soup will "cure" any cold!!

I have had some good meals (their chicken soup) and not so good where they messed up my order, made me wait 30 minutes and then tried to blame me for not getting the order right. Clearly they need better order takers that speak better English (hello! it happens to be the predominant language in America…not Espanol). You might get... More

Finally tried this place after hearing much about their chicken soup. It is as advertised, the best in town! Also tried their rolled beef tacos. Just the basics, guacamole and cheese on top. No unwanted lettuce or tomato. Excellent as well! Don't let the lines scare you, they move you through pretty quickly and any wait is worth it!

Thank Dave D
