I come here every time I visit San Diego. The prickly pear margaritas are fantastic. I recommend the ala carte street tacos and you MUST get the street corn. Great music. Awesome location.

Stopped by to grab a drink. I like the set up of the area. Atmosphere is relaxing on a Friday night. They have live music and the band is pretty decent. I don't know how the food is, just stopped by for a drink while I wait for friends.

Had the Ceveche, which was extremely authentic and great. The Maragritas, were good, but very strong. Enjoy

My favorite Mexican place downtown. It's really a high-end taco shop with great service and savory flavors.

Very expensive and mediocre food. My family and I had a mid afternoon meal here. All together the food was subpar. Tacos, steak, etc. Total came to over $100 and we didn't have any alcoholic drinks. The atmosphere was nice, but not worth the extra money. I would recommend finding somewhere else in San Diego to eat. Good luck!

House chips very greasy, fish tacos are OK. Guac especial is kind of odd, sweet potatoes in guac. Tried it, but not great. I don't see why this place is rated so high. Very good service and friendly staff.
