Only about 5 minutes from Noble Park, you need to search this out if you're hungry for good San Diego Mexican food. Not a lot of seating maybe 20 people however nobody hangs out here like Starbucks they usually eat and leave. More choices than you can imagine. I thought that I wanted a fish burrito, however I chose a salmon burrito the salmon was outstanding tasted like salmon look like salmon and it wasn't heavily breaded or fried

This restaurant is a classic hole in the wall joint. If you base your dining decision on the cleanliness of the bathroom, don't even try it. If you are looking for a big menu of reasonably priced Mexican food, it might be worth a shot. Be aware, the burritos can be a little rough on the stomach.

The food was absolutely delicious. I highly highly recommend having the Molé (sorry if its spelled incorrectly). Our server Federico was awesome, superb customer service and spot on recommendations. It was comforting seeing the owner of the restaurant busting his butt in the kitchen, his hard work shows as the food was delicious. I highly recommend eating here when in San Diego.

Love this place. It's around the corner from my moms house and have been going here for years. The food is consistently good. The portion sizes have shrunk a little since I first starting coming here in 2005... Fish tacos are delicious. Although my favorite has to be the Aloha Burrito! Sweet and savory oh it's the best.
