Weird place but delicious burrito. And very clean inside. Only one problem is no place to seat. A parking very close.

The food is average cheap mexi-cali at best. The people who love it must not have access to good mexican food regularly or haven't even had this authentic type before. It is good compared to say what you can get in middle america or the east coast, but for california, and San Diego specifically, the food is just ok. The... More

This Mexican eatery (a dive, but a good dive.) is a block from my condo so when I am desperate for a quick lunch, I walk over (it closed by 4pm) and get my Mexican fix. But, if you have 10-minutes, go to Hillcrest, North Park or Barrio Logan for phenomenal Mexican food, same price point but way-way-way better Mexican... More

Hole in the good places are becoming extinct due to food trucks. Come to the Mexican Fiesta before they go the way of dinosaurs. Great food at great prices, nothing beats it in downtown SD. The tacos were wonderful and nice sized, my associate had a plata which was loaded with great refried beans and rice. Fresh, cooked to order... More

Great food. Good attendance. Great price. The right place to eat if you need to eat good food for a dime.

It's a little shack on the road. Cheap and cheerful food. Very pleased. My boyfriend went there every day we were in San Diego. Recommended!

The pollo asado and carne asada were the best! If you want to add more into the taco or burrito, don't forget to do that. it doesn't have a lot to begin with. don't forget to ask for hot sauce at the end! You can also walk a couple blocks and sit by the park and water to eat the... More

This has been one of my all time favorite Mexican slop shops downtown. Prices are always fair and the food is always very good and large portions. This is a favorite spot for the working people in this area.

This place is pretty popular because its convenient and reasonably cheaper than most other taco shops. The burritos are not as huge as most other places either which explains the cheaper prices. Carne asada is ok but nothing special.

Great flavorful Mexican food the way you want it. Hole-in-the-wall is understating a bit (see pics). Fresh salsa, slow cooked beef (not ground), great chicken enchiladas, perfect tacos...even great tasting fish tacos. We will visit again! With the length of line on sidewalk at 2:45pm, it must be a traffic jam at noon...worth the wait and the prices are ridiculously... More
