“Best 24hr Mexican food in San Diego”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I think it's fair to say that San Diego is a leader in terms of the availability of 24hr Mexican taquerias.

And it's not hard for me to nominate La Posta, on Washington and 3rd St, as overall king of them all.

If you're looking for dining options after 10pm, you're likely going to have to choose a 24hr place. I go to La Posta anytime, actually. it's that's good!

Call an order into La Posta and you won't be sorry. Their Salsa Verde is amazing btw.
The seating is only outdoor seating, so you may to order "to go"?

“Good stuff”
Reviewed January 9, 2011

I vacationed in San Diego 3 times in the past couple years, and a meal (or two) is always happening for me at La Posta. It is good food, reasonably priced, only a couple tables outside to sit at and eat, most people just order and leave with their food, so getting a table usually isn't an issue. There are some homeless people milling around the building, digging in the garbage, so if that bothers you, steer clear. Just a side note, Bronx Pizza is next door and it is my favorite place to eat in San Diego :) La Posta is worth a try, I love it.

As a 30 year native of San Diego, I have to say this is the best Mexican food in the city center. La Posta is open 24 hours, has great prices and boasts a few vegetarian selections not usually found at fast food Mexican joints (potato rolled tacos, black been and cheese burrito). There is bound to be a crowd, even at 2 a.m. because it is THAT good.
