We went there because we had seen it on yelp and because on the flight to San Diego a tv show talked about their fried ice cream.

When we arrived there were people on the sidewalk waiting. It reassured as because the other restaurants did not have a line up. We were rapidly seated . The menu choice was excellent and the food was served rapidly . The margaritas were excellent too.

The portions are big enough. In fact we had to go walk and shop and then we picked up some fried ice cream to eat on the way home.

After participating in the Susan G Komen 3 Day walk in San Diego, my team walk from our hotel to Thai restaurant in Old town. Food was so awesome! I had the guacamole enchiladas that were to die for. The beans and rice were authentic. Great atmosphere......just what we needed after 60 miles!

Great location in old town. Went early for lunch no crowds, staff was friendly and attentive. Food was quick and all delicious, worth it, for the dollars spent and portions given. Tortillas cooked fresh out in the patio grill. Warm and tasty.

I suggest buying several tortillas from the cute tortillas ladies and making your own little Mexican feast. Or just stand on the sidewalk while you eat them.
2 hot off the grill tortillas for 1 dollar!
Simply put-it's over rated. Service was slow, food wasn't tasty and over prices for what you're getting.

This is in Old Town San Diego, and appears like a typical touristy place, but the food, service, and ambiance was perfect. We went as a big family gathering, were served quickly, and everyone was impressed with the food, portion size and quality. Would go again if I visit SD again. As for their hot sauce, don't go for the hottest: yes it's quite hot, but not very flavorful.
