What a treat this place was! T he food, the service, the look – this place is totally authentic. Great menu…never had so much difficulty deciding what to order at a down home Mexican food restaurant. Went for the breakfast burrito (available all day) and loved it! We also tried the chicken tortilla soup, a regular burrito and the chips... More

I wanted to bring some family from Australia to experience a fish taco. This is a cool typical surf taco place. Our taco was a little bigger then what you would find in some other places. Seen a lot of huge burritos that could be shared. The prices are set in a way that what you order and then add... More

We had heard people raving about this and as it was not very far from our hotel we decided to check it out. In terms of environment it is like a McDonalds in that the floor is dirty, the noise is incredible and there was a large queue. The tables and chairs are plastic and it was really pretty messy....

SUPER-casual, practically hole-in-the-wall spot--with amazing food, fast service, no frills, but FULL of local color and seriously good mexican. Cheap and straight-forward--don't let a moderate line scare you off; these guys COOK. Do not miss!

I fell in love with this place during my month stay in Pacific Beach. They have a massive collection of surfboards along the ceiling and walls of this establishment. The food is really really good, cheap and extremely satisfying. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. They proudly display all their awards which are definitely deserved. Their tamales, tacos, nachos... More
