“Mexican food- great taste with a smile”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Of all the restaurants serving Mexican food in San Diego, this is the one we return to over and over. The wait staff has been there forever, and George, son of the owner, asks if we want the Cadillac Margarita and iced tea (our usual drink order) before we're even seated. All the dishes we have tried have an extra ingredient: love. Their pride in serving excellent food, served quickly, shows in every meal.

“Best mexican food hands down!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Been going here for years and years and its still just as good as it was back then! The food is so good and reasonably priced. The people are always soooo friendly and a mariachi band is always there and plays music and you feel like youre in mexico! The food comes out fast and is great. The parking is the only downfall, its hard to find a spot since there isnt much parking....but go nice and early!

“A Taste of Mexico”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Being serenaded at the table was the best. The food at this establishment was as close to authentic mexican cooking as you're going to get. Prices were great as was the service.Take the time to enjoy the experience .
