    Used to eat here all the time when I was growing up. Parking can be a pain but it's totally worth it. The food and service are awesome! Can't beat the location either.

    This is a staple for every time I'm in SoCal visiting my grandparents. we always get margarita pitchers and the carnitas taco platter is where it's AT.

    If the food matched the location on the lagoon side of San Elijo Lagoon, this place would be great. But it is a disappointing place.

    This used to be the place to go. Not anymore. Service is terrible, the food is mediocre. Except the last time we ate there. The last time we finally walked out after waiting 45 min. for a taco.
