“Great Food and Service!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We eat regularly at Marieta's in Santee but occasionally find ourselves in El Cajon. We have stopped to eat this Marieta's and found it just as good as what we consider ours!
Great Mexican food, very good menu and always great staff!
Prices fair and quality of food way above good!

“Excellent Margaritas!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We have been eating here for year and the good and service couldn't be better. The chips and salsa are amazing and make sure you order a pitcher of margaritas for the table while you're there.

“Excellent Mexican Food in East County”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We have been coming here for about 15 years and the food has always been excellent. Prices are very competitive and the service is always top notch. The owner has just re-modeled and opened a "Bar area" that seems to be doing a very well. He recently combined the two dining rooms and made one much larger and open area. Weekends he has a "soloista" (mariachi) that is one of the best we've heard. No complaints about this restaurant at all!

“By far my favorite restaraunt.”
Reviewed December 1, 2009

I am 21 and I'm pretty sure I've eaten at this restaraunt over 200 times. It is amazing. I always get the same exact thing.... bean and cheese burrito with enchilada sauce on top and sour cream on the side. IT'S AMAZING. The original margaritas are to die for.
