“Hidden treasure”
Reviewed July 14, 2008

You have to drive down Del Obispo to find it, but no one I've recommended it to has been disappointed. Easy access from town or Doheny St. Pk. Turn in at the light for the Armstrong Nursery and it is in the corner past the little market. The food is terrific. The best taquitos anywhere. Homemade , generous portions of nicely seasoned beef or chicken rolled in tortillas, cooked just right and topped with real guacamole, not the stuff out of a jug. Their marinated carrots are lovely! They are over with the chopped onions, cilantro, pico de gallo and salsas of different heat. Dinner #11, the green chili, is my other favorite. There's a small desert menu, but the food is filling and we never get to it. Good burgers and fries if you want traditional.
The ambiance is fun, too. I love looking at the photos of early Capistrano. I've been coming to the beach here since this was farmland and I enjoy the old farm stuff.

“Authentic style Mexican food - Family owned and operated”
Reviewed February 25, 2008

A nice place for lunch or an early casual dinner. Family owned and operated, with the owner on premise most of the time. Happy hour/s specials, daily. Make your own salsa combinations at the salsa bar.

The authentic style Mexican food is priced very reasonable (especially during Happy Hour) . Great, Baja style fish tacos and the carne asada tacos are a hit, too. Combination plates too. Good selection of beer by the bottle, glass and pitcher. Great, Baja style fish tacos and the carne asada tacos are a hit, too. Combination plates too.

Counter service only. Lots of tables and booths.

I would rate it higher, if they didn’t charge $1.00 extra for Chips and Salsa.

“Good Mexican restaurant near SJCapo and Dana Pt”
Reviewed December 21, 2006

Agustin offers no-frills Mexican food that is tasty and inexpensive. We found this place by accident- it is located in a small shopping area, next to Farm to Market on Del Obispo. They offer basic Mexican items such as tacos, burritos and combo plates but the food is tasty. The prices are inexpensive and your food comes on disposable plastic plates but if you are looking for good food and a clean, family friendly restaurant this is worth checking out. The dining area has large booths and tables and there is a small "bar" area with a large screen television. Only visited for late breakfasts, on several weekends, but the place always seems to fill up with regulars. You place your order at the counter, select salsa (hot to hotter) at the salsa bar, seat yourself and then the food is brought to your table. This would be a great place to take kids- the shopping grounds are decorated with brightly painted tractors and farm tools (no climbing) and Agustin's, although almost entirely painted white, also has farm implements decorating the ceiling beams. Remember, this place is located on the outskirts of SJC area, heading towards Dana.
