    Had the seafood mahi mahi taco, that was delicious. We split a surf and turf burrito. The chipotle sauce adds a nice flavor to the shrimp and steak. The place is very small and cramped, be patient.

    I am a huge fan of Mexican food and I adore this place. Surf N Turf or Surfin California burritos with the creamy white/green sauce. Hits the spot every time. Also, their tacos are superb!

    Between my fiancé and I we ordered Surf and Turf Tacos, Undefeated Seafood Tacos with Mahi and the Queso Taco and Champions Fries. A bit too much but everything was great!

    No breakfast burrito like el jefe. Definite way to start your day. May be all you need for an entire day. Also get the chips and try out the salsa bar.

    If you order the pollo asado tacos make sure to ask for some lemon or lime , the pollo was tasty but kinda dry, but still really tasty! Next time im giving the surf n turf burrito a shot!

    Tacos are amazing and they use great quality meat. Small selection of craft beer. Worth a visit to this Mission Hills establishment.

    Surf and turf, mahi mahi burritos are both so good! Try the green cucumber salsa and the the white/green salsa.

    Best three cheese dilla, evar. TJ dog is ok—the bacon is good but the mustard takes over. The creamy garlic salsa stuff is so good it makes me want to bathe in it.

    Try the Surfin' California Burrito -- a steak, shrimp and french-fry-filled concoction that puts the smackdown on standard taqueria fare. As seen on Man v Food.

    THE BEST SURF AND TURF BURRITO YOU'LL EVER HAVE! Salsa bar is great! Get one of the mini burritos if you're not too hungry (still pretty big).

    Prior to voraciously devouring a Surfin' Cali Burrito, induce vomiting, and use/consume every laxative, stool softener, suppository, and enema know to man. Trust me, you'll need the space for this one

    Highlights: the champion nachos and free chips + salsa. The mango salsa and creamy green cilantro one is fab. The tacos weren't amazing but thy are huge.

    The salsa bar is legit. So many tasty options. The brownish red salsa closely resembles this Drunken Salsa made with tequila and dark beer. Learn how to make it at home on kitchenkonfidence.com!

    Try the Surfin California burrito! You can definitely get one to share between two. Also unlimited sauces - the garlic aioli is to die for.

    Surf N Turf or Surfin California burritos with the creamy white/green sauce. Hits the spot every time. Also, their tacos are superb! Flaco Taco is a refreshing vinegary lettuce taco.

    Great choice of burritos, when having a burrito which has meat and shrimp in it the flavour of the shrimp overpowers the meat

    The New Style Veg Out burrito has to be the best vegan burrito I have ever had! The vegetables are marinated in balsamic goodness.

    Breakfast is the bomb and there are no crowds to deal with in the morning. Try the chilaquiles or the triple squealer quesadilla.

    This place is crazy busy. You're not allowed to save seats unless you've got your ticket stub. Bitchy workers & very messy salsa station. Tho the burrito was good & I like that you can buy beer there

    Carne asada fries! The best ones in san diego. Don't try the tj dog. Drive to l.a for the dog in the garment district on maple ave.

    Doesn't matter what you have, because you'll want to come back for something else anyway! If you want to start with a burrito, have the Surfin' California!!

    Best taco shop in San Diego. Their carne asada quesadillas are amazeballs. And you have to have a TJ hotdog shoved in your face hole.
