I was extremely disappointed. Ordered the Surfin' California burrito and a few of the TJ tiny burros. The Surfin' had some GREAT tasting stuffings, but sadly was served luke-warm with the cheese not even being melted. After a 10-minute wait in line, I was expecting a good plate. Now, the salsas and the carrot/jap/onion mix was done correctly. The decor... More

Seeing all the raving reviews and the episode on Man Vs. Food, I decided to give this place a try to see if it really lived up to the all the hype it has been receiving. Walking to the restaurant, you immediately noticed the line that was going out the door. There was a sign in front of us that... More

Wow, this place was so good and fun. The wait wasn't to long and it was tough getting a table inside but after eating the burrito I realized it was all worth it. My only complaint is that I will not be back in San Diego for another year and will dream of this burrito.

Last Friday we reserved the Champs Booth for a full service experience in this wonderful taco joint. The food was wonderful, hot and flavorful. The service was prompt and courteous. We had a lot of fun!

What a kitsch place with delicious food. Options for everyone including vegan and vegetarian, and the salsa bar is incredible. Book the Lucha ring for a special event for added entertainment. They also sponsor local lucha events.

The burritos here are amazing! I came all the way from Wisconsin to try them and I was not disappointed! I had a burrito (I think it was surf and turf or something similar?) It had steak, shrimp, AND FRENCH FRIES inside! It was delicious and their sides are good too! Get the corn! The girl at the register had... More

Went here for dinner and was so impressed. Delicious surf & turf burrito -- big enough for two meals. Excellent value. We arrived on a Wednesday around 6 p.m. -- short wait and there were several tables. (We sat near the gold championship table.) We would've gone back if we could have.

It is worth the wait but way better to call ahead. We made the mistake of waiting over 45 minutes. The california surf burrito and plabano burrito were both yummy. I love the French fries inside. The side sauces add some flavor and kick.

I visited after looking up a good Mexican restaurant. Definitely the reviews were right. We had to wait for about 25 mins, but as soon as we ordered the food came out in less than 10 mins. If you want to eat good and at a good price, you should come to this place.
