Not wanting to pay for room service for the Westin hotel I walked 2 blocks to find this cool little taco shop. Only sad thing is it's cash only with an atm inside which I hate. I got a breakfast burrito & a carne asada...More

Surpassed my expectations! It's this perfect little momma poppa restaurant with great prices and even better portions. They only accept cash but have an ATM inside. I HIGHLY recommend the carne asada burrito combination, perfection!

I was looking for a real taco at a small restaurant and saw this place on trip advisor. Apparently, this was it! Delicious and very cheap food!

Tons of food for a great price. Went with friends and we got tacos, enchiladas, quesadilla and tostadas. Food was super good. Highly recommended.

Great, authentic Mexican food for a very good price. The street tacos were fantastic, the tamales very good, and the grilled chicken tacos were also very good.

Had lunch here and it was by far the best we'd had in San Diego! Highly recommend grabbing a meal here!
