My favorite place for Mexican fast food. I am often asked to by people on the east coast who have to Adalbertos to ship them some burritos from there, yes it is that good!

A must stop for me every time I travel to San Diego. Not sure how something so simple can be so good but it is quite amazing. The staff at this place is awesome as well. It is always the same guy taking orders and he looks to be so happy that everyone is eating here.

We read an obscure recommendation on the wall of the apartment we are staying in and then randomly spied this spot on the way home from downtown San Diego. Conveniently located right off Rosecrans...the carne asada was so delicious and authentic!!!! We are going back!

This is a no frills restaurant with orders taken from behind the counter & meals served in takeaway containers. You can eat at the restaurant as it is set out like... More

It is great mexican food at a good price. You will pay the same at a chain restaurant why not have something authentic.

We drove past this place several times in our adventures around San Diego. Then one night after we got off the harbor cruise we decided to stop. Oh my were we glad we did.
