Lots to Like here,. larger menu selection at dinner.

Go To Dishes: Any of their moles, the chicken tortilla soup, and I’m a sucker for a good shrimp cocktail.

So there are some places I like for Mexican food. Not all inclusive and I left out some Americanized places like Haggo’s in Cardiff, Puesto in La Jolla / San Diego and Grubby’s / Los Tacos in Carlsbad and Oceanside that are all great in their own right.
