In a mexican ambience this restaurant is a perfect place to go with friends and have the best tacos out from Mexico( although those with octópous are not so good , as the mixture with potatoes is not the best. Don’t go if you are in a rush, there is always full.

This was a fun place with nice ambiance. We actually ate there at lunch at the bar. We got the filet tacos with crispy cheese. VERY good!

We had this place recommended from a friend in Texas and s waiter at Extraordinary Desserts. We are Texan & picky with our live for Tex Mex. these weren’t tacos we would have picked at home, but they were delicious! My husband is a beef man, but he loved one of the chicken tacos. I loved the mushroom taco. We could have split 1 plate (3 tacos). The guacamole appetizer with Parmesan cheese was not like Texas, but we enjoyed it! The margarita was touted as the best in SD by our waiter & friend and I agree!

Stopped in for lunch and had the mix and match tacos. The monthly special taco was bland and not much flavor. Chicken taco had much more flavor and was loaded. The guac was average, nothing special and chips were never refilled. Service was good.

A group of 6 Flight attendants who dine out all of the time everywhere enjoyed a memorable evening dining and drinking. The drinks were generous,the tacos were great,and the deserts most awesome. Even though they were crazy busy the staff was most attentive especially Sam the manager. She came by several times to check on our group. A definite gem in San Diego.
