“A gem!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Great food! We tried several different items and enjoyed them all. The food was very fresh and so flavorful. The service was fast, efficient and friendly. Talk about value for your money too - we couldn't believe how reasonable the prices were! A definite must go again place!

“Good inexpensive Mexican food”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

The food is really good so La Playa. Unfortunately we waited nearly an hour to eat (including waiting in line to order), which took away from the experience. Seating and parking are very limited. Go if it's not crowded. Not worth the wait if crowded.

“Real Mexican on Mission Bay”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This place is one of our favorite finds on our vacation in Mission Bay. This small place serves the real deal! Authentic Mexican made by the friendliest people we met. Try their California Burrito...they are amazing! We love this little place....so affordable and good we're going back for our third time tomorrow. Only a few steps away from Catarmaran Resort. Only one block from the ocean! We had our food in less than 10 minutes and they had a constant stream of satisfied customers.

“Pretty good tacos. ”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

The place is small, but good to take away and eat on the beach. The fish tacos are very good. Best of several Mexican restaurants that were tested in San Diego.

“Authentic Mexican at it's best”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Staying at the Best Western or Catamaran on Mission? This is your place, right around the corner. The pork is the best meat, tacos are soft and fresh, chips made on the premises, salsa thick with tomatoes, onions and cilantro. This little hole in the wall rivals the best Mexican restaurants in S CA for food quality, price and convenience. It's worth getting here wherever you're coming from. We will be back when we visit the area again.
