    This place is nice and cosy! Especially the outside part. The ceviche is excellent, the fish is fresh and the preparation tasty and spicy! The potato taco was a bit too sweet for me but still tasty!

    A must stop in La Jolla. Outstanding street tacos- filet mingon, mahi mahi, carnitas, al pastor, shrimp- grilled cheese in the homemade tortillas & the mole is so savory. pair with a street fruit cup.

    ONE of the best taco places I've ever been to. The selection of tacos are plenty. You would think that one plate of 3 tacos might not be enough, but they sure are filling tacos. GET FROZEN HORCHATA.

    Fantastic fresh street style tacos. Lovely little restaurant, great vibe and decor. Helpful staff. Highly recommend. Taco sliders are a great way to explore different combos

    They just started their full service restaurant and it's the best! I love their tacos and sangria. Get a bottle and share with a good friend! Definitely coming back!

    So freaking good! Up there with Warhol's! The Pollo Al Pastor bowl and Soyrizo Potato Tacos are amazing! Great Indie music playing adds to the hip look and feel of Puesto.

    The most amazing tacos I have ever had. So many choices, and amazingly fresh ingredients. And that soda fountain! I am seriously heartbroken this is so far from where I live.

    Fantastic, fresh tacos to make your body happy. Of the ones I've had, filet mignon is #1 and worth the upcharge, but chicken verde is right behind and regular priced.

    Great Mexican street taco place with lots of Vegetarian choices for non-meat eaters like potatoes and chilies, potatoes and soy chorizo, corn truffle, and zucchini flower.

    You can mix and match different kinds of tacos. I got one carne asada and one carnitas - so good!
  • Justin S.
    Taco Tuesday is awesome. $2.50 + the up charge on specials (filet, lamb, crab, etc). You'll be surprised at how good the zucchini cactus is.

    Even though every meat taco I got tasted like pork they were still good. It had great beers on tap and excellent service. 7 out of 10. It was also kind of pricey.

    Margaritas are fresh squeezed and perfect. A pitcher of those with a bowl of IG-worthy guacamole makes for a great date.

    Make sure to get a side of guisados and ask them to cook it on the plancha! Then top it off w/some fresh veggies and salsa!!

    Awesome veggie options. Fantastic place all around with good ambiance, fresh/simple food, and thoughtful design throughout.

    Quiet bar with good margaritas and tacos. Some bartender staff can be slow, so grab a table and be waited on if you have trouble.

    Chicken tacos are awesome! Don't forget to get a frozen horchata too!
  • Lord funkomatic A.
    Authetic street tacos down to the handmade tortillas, with la Jolla prices. Worth every penny.... Can't put a price on freshness! Oh yeah....PS Dave Matthews band still sucks.

    It sort of feels like a graphic designer cranked this chain out and doesn't quite belong... The micheladas and vegetarian tacos are where it's at.

    Brilliant but hard to describe. Comparable to Chipotle but... Better? And they've got an awesome drink menu for a taco shop.

    Tacos were very good. I had the fish, al pastor, and carnitas taco. Pretty pricey for three tacos. 12.96

    Get the filet minon tacos! The tuna ones need some seasoning... But really good overall.

    The tacos were good not great...but 30 bucks for 3 tacos and a beer with tip feels un-american.

    They call it street food, but it's like a high end taco chain meets chipotle and subway, with a resulting bastard child.

    Although food is tasty, we had to wait to be served for more than a 30min. Ordered 3x3 tacos. They could have done a better job

    Pretty much everything is good here. It's chipotle-style choose your own but with better branding and better selections.

    It's now a sit-down restaurant with table service instead of fast-food style! Which means tacos are 3 for $13 instead of 3 for $8.95 :(
