“No lie...best corn ever!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

We were in the mood for fish tacos and saw the review raving about the corn on the cob and thought we'd give it a try. The fish tacos were excellent and the lobster bacon torta was amazing but the corn on the cob is what will keep us coming back. Absolutely unbelievably delicious. Great place, great service with a great atmosphere and parking!

Hello docdpd,

So glad you loved the grilled corn on the cobb so much! The cotija and red chili it is dressed in really makes it flavorful and unique! I suggest coming on a Wednesday night for our half-off all appetizer special (4pm - 11pm). More corn (and other delicious apps), for half the price! Thank you for writing.

Best wishes,
Nicole C.

“One of the best during our trip to SanDiego”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

We liked this place so much, we went there a few times during our visit. The food is really great - the steak nachos a 'must have'. The beer selection is pretty decent too. The line was out the door for 'Taco Tuesday'. GREAT PLACE!!!

“I mean, it's just corn.”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

NO IT'S NOT! The corn on the cob they serve here is out of this world incredible! The rest of the meal we had was also great, but please just pass the corn!

“Best meal”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we took his advice. It was the best meal we had in San Diego !! Our waiter went out of his way to please us. The food was spectacular and the serving size was perfect. The seating area was amazing- outside but out of the sun!!! I hope many others will experience this awesome place!!

“AWESOME MEXICAN FOOD”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

The inside is very cozy and comfortable. The service was amazing and the food epic. The Tres Enchiladas were to die for as well as the fresh guacamole. The Enchiladas Rancheras also amazing. Would highly recommend this place for good food with a fun atmosphere.
