Owner description: Settled in the 1920s by people fleeing the Mexican Revolution, this historical neighborhood holds firmly to its Latino flavor despite the modern development around it, and boasts fine food and interesting shops.

except for Lola's and the El Torito market, this could be mistaken for any other nice quiet neighborhood. wide streets, clean yards, no junk cars in yards or on streets, very little graffiti, Barrio? it redefines the term

I like the Carlsbad Barrio because it's in walking distance of the beach but feels like Cabo San Lucas or a cleaner Puerto Vallarta... Try Lola's Market for a chille relleno, scrambled egg, cheese and salsa Fresca breakfast burrito cooked kitchen-style right before your eyes. Or maybe try El Puerto for the fish burrito and quesadilla... be sure to get their green sauce, it's not to be missed. Out of town visitors always seem to like Pollos Maria, which has a great patio for street-vendor style tacos. Look to their daily specials on the chalkboard they are often the cheapest and best-tasting menu items... only there for a short time.
