We were there on Christmas day. It was one of the few places around where we were staying. The food was delicious. Both our kids loved their fries.

A terrific offering of Mexican and plentiful Seafood. We had the Salmon, Shrimp and Lobster Tacos entree and we all found our dishes to be very fresh, perfectly prepared and tasteful. They do it well here. Ambiance is casual, but the food is not, foodies can enjoy. We don't like to go back to the same places, but this would be an exception if we go back to San Diego.

I had the fish tacos plate, with rice and beans...all were excellent. The wine was a good value, service (in the bar) excellent!

Stopped in for dinner. Great atmosphere and service. I decided on the Baja Lobster and it was well worth the price.
