I work close by, and to use the restrooms you have to ask for a key , and after that they will tell you a long speech to gain accses to the restroom even though is public .
But that does not keep it clean or well stocked with paper is been falling in disrepair they do little or nothing to their infrastructure dont get caught short without toilet paper , c mom el patio owner take note that we get people from around the world , whom nicely visits San Diego and bring revenue to old town and by the way if you dont welcome patrons to your restrooms why your employees are using alternate restrooms in the state park or across the street ?.

Ps the burritos are good

Found this place by mistake. Heard some great music and walked over. One of the young ladies invited us to come and eat. Glad we did, food was excellent. Try the mocajete, ceviche and fajitas. Tortillas were light and great.

A bit off the main drag of Old Town so it was not at all crowded. Very nice setting and atmosphere. We sat inside since it was quite a chilly evening but we could still here the music on the patio. The service was slow and i did not like the guacamole becasue they put way too many onions in it (and large pieces too). The small margeurita on the rocks was very small and mostly ice, but tasty. The food was just OK, but the best part was the tres leche cake for dessert - yummy.

Stopped here after the trolley tour. Good location. The atmosphere was great. Live entertainment by a talented gentleman. Now the bad… the loaded nachos were not loaded except loaded with chips. Waitress was non existent. Took our order waited a LONG time for anything and then disappeared. For Mexican food it was bland. Just not good.
