    Taco Tuesday is a great day to visit. Awesome tacos and great service. You have to have a churro after dinner, so yummy.

    The GIANT margarita is worth sharing (or one by yourself if you want a few giggles from the other tables)

    pro-margaritas, outdoor seating, atmosphere, service. Cons-everything else. Food is SOOO bad. Tourist trap, never go. it's Cali how can mex food be THIS bad
  • Tom S.
    Wow.. If this is #2 in town I'd hate to see #10! Salsa was TERRIBLE. My ketchup at home is more salsa-y. Wabo-rita had very little "wabo" and the enchiladas were ordinary at best... Cisco all the way

    This place is always packed but neither the dishes or the cocktails aren't that good, in the other hand the place is cozy and the staff very friendly

    Great breakfast

    San Diego has the best burritos. Cafe Coyotes carne asada was no exception. Order some handmade tortillas for your appetizer.
  • Benson B.
    My enchiladas tasted like Amy's frozen enchiladas

    Ask for the vegetarian menu. Flour tortillas and potatoes have dairy in them and the pinto beans have lard.Meh

    Ordered the Chile Colorado plate. Very tasty, not too filling. Service here is great; waiter was timely with food. Complication with margarita earned us free flan, tasted like cheesecake!

    I enjoy doing here for a night out with friends and family for great, traditional Mexican food. The margaritas are always mixed well with a perfect blend of tequila. A popular tourist so it is crowded

    The tortillas are the best especially due to the fact that it was handmade.

    The chicken flautas are excellent. If you order cafe salad instead of beans and rice, get it with the Mexican dressing.

    Great menu and delicious mexican food. They have a good selection of Margaritas. The prices are moderate and the portions are big.

    The carnitas were amazing! Crispy skin, well seasoned and served with homemade tortillas! The wait can be long so call for reservations Id possible. The wait is worth it though!

    Tacos are oily. It is good...but not the best. I would rather go to other places before this one in old town...such as Fiesta de Reyes

    Like stepping into a giant Mexican stereotype. Fun place, mariachi band, HUGE margaritas. Not the most authentic experience but definitely fun and satisfying.

    ENORMOUS margs, delicious food, and a mariachi band. Does it get any better?
  • Enrique G.
    It's, by far, the best Mexican foreign restaurant I've tried. Still they are missing some things, like using black beans instead of brown ones...

    I had the flauta plate & my husband had variety plate (taco, enchilada, & chili relleno). Both had an AWESOME smokey chili flavor. Atmosphere's great & lots of seating space.

    The tortilla soup leans on the salty side. I didn't finish it.
