When on the way to San Diego, or simply enjoying all the breweries around that area - this is our go to for a lunch or dinner stop. 1 order of carne asada fries is more than enough for two people. So good...now I want some!

Had a good lunch here, not the kind of place you'd drive miles to get to but fairly a fairly standard fast food joint.

I found this place online and they were supposed to be the best carne asada fries in San Diego. I'm not sure I would agree with that. I just though they were average.

I can not say how amazing this place is. I love carne asada fries. I have never had anything like them! It is a full meal with all the works.

I guess I should have looked at the photos better before coming here. I thought it was a mom & pop shop, but rather it was a chain. I got a wet carne asada burrito and it was pretty good, but I was disappointed that they didn't have lengua. I say it's not a proper Mexican joint without lengua on... More

I has the crunchy chicken taco, which was good but the chicken was bland. I would definitely try a different meat next time. The refried beans were really good. The place seems to be non-stop busy. I look forward to trying their carne asada fries which look delicious.

Burritos are really good. And big. The California burrito was very tasty. The Deluxe breakfast burrito was also good but lacked a little in flavor. Fortunately, they have a salsa bar with a variety of flavors. The restaurant is clean and has a pretty side patio with tables and umbrellas. Only thing lacking (for breakfast) is coffee...but a Starbucks is... More

If you're in a hurry there's a Taco Bell nearby. If you don't mind waiting 10 to 15 minutes for your food, this is the place to be. Just a few blocks from my office, this place is difficult to resist. Fortunately, I'm holding myself to a diet right now so the California Burritos will have to wait. Their salsa... More
