Sat down at 6:30. For the next hour all we got was chips and drinks. There were maybe 10 or 12 people there when we got there including a large group of middle age ding dongs yelling their heads off which drove us outside. My...More

Finally tried Fulano's after many years living in Carlsbad. It was my outstanding that they were a gourmet Mexican restaurant. Well just ain't so. Just average food and average service. Lots of other really good Mexican restaurants in the area. Try one of them. They...More

Overpriced, rarely open, interesting owner-chef. Won't return. Sadly gone downhill from prior years' visits.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in San Diego. The chile rellano is so light and delicate with a delicious sauce. The pork dish with portobello mushroom has one of the most incredible sauces ever and it is served with great cole slaw. I don't...More
