We're staying about 15 minutes from Luibuenos and this is our second dinner here, last night we had the americano tacos(one with chicken and one with beef brisket) and they were delicious! We also split a quesadilla and it was huge, we're talking an inch thick of cheese and chicken and fillings, amazing. Our server Jeremy was attentive and nice.... More

We had lunch there yesterday. It's family friendly with tall tables in the bar area and regular tables elsewhere. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. We needed to push 2 tables together - no problem. There is a kids menu and the littles get crayons to color it. We ordered a variety of things from the menu. Everything was... More

What a great find! We were looking for a decent Mexican place and came upon Luibueno's! Our server, Samantha, was super nice and real knowledgeable about all menu items and marguerites! We started with drinks since it was close to 4:00 and figured we'd order off the happy hour menu. Ordered the Caesar salad which was large enough to share.... More

despite being full we immediately got a high table near the bar and decided to stay for atmosphere and comfort. what followed was an array of incredibly tasty delicious dishes, sweet ahi, nachos, fishtacos, etc. no space for dessert though

I lived in San Diego for several years, and was fortunate to have lots of great Mexican restaurants to choose from - Luibueno's could rival any of them, and the variety on their drink menu makes it really hard to choose!

My family of 6 + toddler had a wonderful dinner. Not a lot of seating for big parties, but we arrived at a great time and were seated immediately with a high chair. The staff was super friendly and attentive; the chips and salsa was the BEST I have ever had. Great entrees, margaritas and definitely worth a visit.

We were so busy we never got in to town to visit the shrimp trucks or couldn't find parking. Although it isn't very Hawaiian, we decided to try Mexican food and Luibueno's came through. Really great drink choices, yummy salsa and fresh, plentiful entrees. I only gave 4 stars because we thought the prices were rather high, not the best... More

We wanted Mexican food after the beach and on our way back home, we saw this place. It looked good and very busy. Huband loved the different kind of drinks they had, and the food was amazing!

Traveled from the Westside to eat lunch here. Not worth the ride. But if you are on that side of the island, the drinks are OK. The restaurant isn't large so you may have to wait.
