The menu has a great selection of Mexican dishes including appetizers, soups, tacos, salads, fajitas, combo plates of chicken, pork, beef, or seafood, There is also a great choice of margaritas. Only items we did not like where the chile relleno, which was soggy and the tamale, which had too much masa.

We ate here on a Wednesday evening. Expecting a 20 minute wait for a table, we hit the bar which was in the midst of happy hour which included chips and appetizers. Shortly after we got our drinks, the pager went off and we were seated in the outdoor courtyard. Chips and salsa were most tasty and they provided different... More

This restaurant is a great supporter for our Komen 3 Day walkers -- they are right at the bottom of the BIG HILL and they lay out a spread for the walkers hitting the hill. Thank you!!

We had a few hours to kill before our flight so stopped by Old Town and had lunch here. We got there a little after 11 for lunch and wasn't crowded yet. About 30 mins later the patio was packed with what looked like mostly locals. The chips and salsa was excellent. Being from Texas we love our chips and... More

The restaurant invites you upon entering. The building is beautifully maintained both in and out. It offers food choices for all tastes. The offerings are plentiful and arrive at your table like a photo. Margaritas will satisfy your taste. You don't have to cross the border to get authentic Mexican. The chips and salsa excel

I've been here twice, on two subsequent visits to San Diego and both times the food was great! Real Mexican food and beer and homemade tortillas. The staff is very friendly and the place is quite busy.
