Great spot for a group. Delicious Guac and chips for a starter. The 3 tacos for $16 was more food than most of us could eat for a luncheon and the margaritas were great. Nice outdoor seating area with heaters, service was excellent. We enjoyed lunch but can imagine that it's a great spot for dinner and drinks too!

I have been to Puesto many times. I know, another taco place. NO! It is an experience . It is hip, it is open, it is flowing. The tacos are a must. You will remotely recognize them as a genre of the Mexican staple, but just wait. The beef tacos are filet mignon, with a piece of fried oaxacan cheese, guacamole, pure heaven. Great collection of Mexican beers AND a bit of a selection of Mexican wines. Try Emeve, a good red blend. ENJOY!

The 3 tacos for $16 were delicious I must say. I came down to San Diego from LA to visit my cousin where in LA you can get authentic Mexican tacos for $1.50 from a taco truck. I was skeptical in buying 3 tacos for $16 (very pricey), BUT it was really delicious. If you don't mind paying the price, it is definitely worth it.

We are there twice in our recent trip. The best tacos especially the first mignon taco, Blue corn tortillas made on site and great margaritas. Service was great, gets crowded so get there early.

Went for their individual tacos and was not let down. We had a great waiter who recommended some great Mexican IPAs. I had the Astillero. Spicy Margs were good. We had tuna guac which was a little salty but still liked it. The Goberbnador shrimp taco was spicy but good. They have lobster and filet mignon tacos in one taco that was interesting 4 people bill came to $137.04 so not too high but food was good..
