Foursquare Tips

  • So far the best menudo in San Diego! Perfect if you have a hangover! :)
  • order the carnitas platter. you won't be disappointed.
  • Order the carnitas crispy style. You won't believe how good they are!
  • Great guacamole.
  • Long known for it's vibrant bar scene, the food has slipped markedly over the past ten years. They have 'gringo-ized' the food to appeal to the touristas that come to Old Town State Park.
  • Super breakfast service! And they serve Organic Tequila Cocktails!
  • Don't waste your time coming here. The food is bland and the service sucks.
  • Carnitas - crispy
  • Fresh tortillas are the best.
  • The service and food have slipped in just another crappy mexican food restaurant lacking in flavor. Margaritas are watered down and full of ice. Try somewhere else. :/
  • Carnitas & margaritas! Delicious!
  • Carnitas Platter + fresh tortilla = HEAVEN!!! #TeamMuffinTop
  • Love the home made tortillas, margaritas, mole, and chicken fajitas.
  • They have the best carnitas in San Diego! Their homemade tortillas are bomb and they are big so the wait moves quick! Also have 3$ margs on Taco Tuesday!
  • Been eating here for years. One of our favorite sit down mexican food spots in SD. Great food and very reasonable prices.
  • Chicken plate is great! Juicy not dry. Tortillas are best in town.
  • They have the best corn tortillas and beans. But the service sucks.
  • Good service, but very obviously a tourist hotspot. Anyway...Ceviche good! Fresh, handmade tortillas good! Old Town "special" carnitas- below average.
  • Sit at the bar if you're into good vibrations cuz when the blender starts ~ whoa, baby! Reverberations x10
  • Carnitas with handmade tortillas! Can't go wrong ;)
