So I've heard this place was good. OMG, I ordered food outside, I go inside and seat down. It was hot, nasty, flies, dirty, and I wouldn't go back. They brought the food and I could not eat it. It was a lot of food,...More

1.99 tacos. If that's not enough said... let me tell you these are some of the most authentic tacos I have ever had. They give you free beans, chips and salsa! Love it here! They also have seafood and veggie options!

Nothing wrong with this place unfortunately though nothing too right. With such a vast selection of Mexican food in San Diego combined with Tijuana, they're just really isn't much here to crave. I had 4 tacos, shrimp , tongue, birria and carne asada. If you...More

My husband loved, loved, loved the carne asada tacos, grilled outside, with fresh tortillas. I don't eat meat, but loved, the fish plate. Unassuming, inexpensive, and busy with young, hip diners. ,
