Hipster Mexican, done Cali style. Food is nicely done and decor is interesting and hip. Some great spicy drinks and a pretty elaborate margarita menu make this a good spot to check out in Gas Lamp.

Go early and go during happy hour! Great food and drinks for a reasonable price! Everything we tried was great. I don’t think you could go wrong with anything on the menu.

Steps from my hotel-excellent Mexican food! I had the chicken mole enchiladas and they were so good. The mole was deep and rich and actually had a little bite to go with the hint of sweet. Had a nice local beer with such-a few options...More

In San Diego for business and took my wife to dinner here. Incredible street tacos and fantastic mango margaritas. The restaurant was busy and we had to wait a bit, but well worth the wait. A hip, happening place with great service and reasonable prices.

They can go for breakfast or lunch. I don't remember the cut off time, but after a certain time anyone under 21 is not allowed. I think it is 6pm.
