Met friends for lunch here today in this very good gringo Mexican restaurant. The ambiance is great, the chips and salsa are plentiful, crispy and warm. The portions are massive, the food delivered quickly and steaming hot!

I hadn't been to Casa de Pico since they moved from Old Town to the Grossmont Shopping Center (which I understand was 10 years ago now). It was really great to have Mexican food there again. The restaurant is much bigger than the old venue...More
