Don't miss out on the artistic ambience of this restaurant, but more importantly, the incredible street tacos. Especially loved the filet mignon with avocado in blue corn tortillas. YUM!

Went here for the Taco Tuesday special. The wait was 90 minutes at 7 pm when we showed up, but we settled up to the bar for drinks. Great offering of drinks and snacks while we waited for our table. The tacos were delicious and well worth the wait. Some of the best guacamole dip I've had!

San Diego is known for amazing Mexican food and Puesto is a great representation of what we have to offer . They have the greatest tacos . I tried one that had portobello mushrooms and I couldn’t even tell there wasn’t meat inside it was so flavorful and tasty ! I also love the filet m taco ! Super yummy . I also love the guacamole with parmigiano cheese ! To die for street corn too ! Very great meal

I stopped in for their specialty, tacos. I was not wowed by the tacos, for me they were ok. I however love their mango lemon and their chips and salsa.
