We went for a drive today and started craving Mexican food. We found Mexicocina on Poway Road. What a great find! Reasonable prices, LARGE portions, terrific service, and a pet-friendly outdoor patio! I spotted outdoor heaters in the patio. Excellent parking available, which was nice....More

Mexicocina (at 12213 Poway Rd) is a place to avoid!!! We went there November 29, 2017, and wound up having to inform the waitress that the steak fajitas and the carnitas were both made with meat that had spoiled. Our teenager and I ended up...More

I used to come here often for the great Mexican food. I stopped in last April and the service was fine but the food was not up the quality that I used to enjoy. I will not be back.

A small restaurant in the back of a shopping center that is a favorite of locals. The salsa is pretty good and the margaritas are strong. Sometimes, that's all you need. I usually get chicken fajitas, so that would be my pick as a recommendation.
