Food and service great. Salsa bar excellent; green salsa wonderful. Chips are a little heavy, not my favorite. I always go to el indio when I'm in san diego. The machaca plate is my favorite for breakfast. Always go before 11:30 am or it's packed.
On a brief visit to San Diego stopped here for lunch. I ate here often when I lived here 40 years ago. Some changes but food remains excellent. I ha an enchilada verde with cheese--moderately spicy, and a vegetarian tamale. Very economical too.
Cool little place for “fast food” style Mexican food. My husband and I split the San Diego burrito (our fave), carne asada quesadilla and a toastada. We would recommend and would come back again if in the area.
We are new in the area and saw this place listed with some great reviews. However we were really looking for a dine in restaurant and this is more of a take out. You order at the counter then seat yourself inside or outside. A...More
And the best chips! Hearty chips made right there in the store. Also torillo making you can see.
Parking can we tight, they have a shared private lot NW of the store front. Easy on/off access from the I-5. Convenient to downtown.
The food here is inexpensive and delicious! It is a small counter service restaurant that's been around for decades. Everyone in my group loved the food they ordered. It is an excellent stop if your looking for less expensive but great Mexican food!
