We were staying in Del Mar for a weekend getaway from Colorado and the snow (where there are amazing Mexican food options, from dive to high-end). One us also lived in San Diego for 8 years, thus being familar with the area and many of the region's restaurants.
First, the atmosphere was terrible. We understand that this is a beach restaurant, but it felt like we were sitting in an airplane hanger with a jumbo jet testing its engines. It was so loud that the two of us had to shout across the table to each other.
Second, the food was awful. By awful meaning tasteles and bland -- truly NO flavor at all. When is the last time anyone needed to put salt and pepper on a burritio??? The chicken in the burritos was absolutely flavor-less, the rice and beans tasted like cardboard, and even the burrito toppings could not be differentiated from each other. Next time I'll go through a Taco Bell drive through rather than eat here.
