Mexican standards, giant margaritas & tableside mariachis in a kitschy, folk art-adorned space.- Google
"Not the most authentic Mexican food, but still pretty good."

Yum! I've been here three times and their food is amazing. I wouldn't say the best, but they are one of the best! Service is nice

I will revise my review when I get to eat an actual meal there. I met friends for Happy Hour, my drink was great! Pina Colada. YUM! The Happy Hour snack buffet was meh. Not good. They had two trays of something that looked like enchiladas. Yuck. They were full of a bean like substance. The cheese was good :) The ambiance was nice, good for hanging out with friends, the bartender Juan Carlos was really nice, and the drinks we good... I will definitely try again

My absolutely most favorite Mexican restaurant on the planet. Unfortunately, I live in Tucson, but I make a point of timing my trips to California so I can be at Casa de Pico for either lunch or dinner. I've never found a Mexican restaurant with better food or better service. Hope they're around for a very long time.

BEST mexican food and margaritas in La Mesa. I've lived near here for as long as I can remember and have eaten here quite a few times. I'm unfortunately a creature of habit and have been stuck on their Cheese Crisp dish forever because well... it's delicious. I've ventured out a few times and tried their healthy options which were all also super good but the cheese crisp has me stuck. I get a mixture of both the beef and chicken. So good! The Padre Pride margarita is heavenly as well. Love coming here for some comfort food and a drink. The band playing throughout the restaurant is also a nice touch but they honestly get annoying after about 10 minutes. It's typically super loud in there and hard to hear whoever your eating dinner with, so I usually volunteer to sit outside or on the patio so escape that.

WORLD-CLASS MEXICAN FOOD AWAY FROM THE CROWDS If you want some of San Diego's finest Mexican cuisine without fighting the tourist crowds in Old Town, Casa de Pico in Grossmont Center is the place. Formerly located in Old Town, Casa de Pico set up shop in Grossmont when the Bazaar Del Mundo lost a bidding war for that location. San Diego locals still seek out the old Bazaar del Mundo restaurants, following the food no matter where it is served. Margaritas the size of bird baths, mariachis and fountains enhance the festive atmosphere while you enjoy your favorites from an extensive menu. The enchiladas suizas are to die for.

Not the most authentic Mexican food, but still pretty good. Casa de Pico has a nice big outdoor patio so it's a good place to sit around and enjoy a couple of margaritas and tacos. Whenever I do go here, I always make it a point to go early in the day before their busy time. Once this place starts to get packed, their service seems to suffer a little bit.

I really like this place alot. The food is always good and they do have great margaritas. Sometimes the wait is a little long, but when you time it right you can walk in, get seated and in 5 minutes you will have fresh chips, salsa and a drink. What more can you ask for.
