My Mom loved tacos and Cessy's is a great place for them. The steak tacos with the crunchy shell is our favorite. We also like the California Burrito. Not a restaurant you to with servers, but the food is wonderful. You should try it.

We went there for dinner. It was the worst burrito I have ever eaten. Very dried out and no flavor. Largest table only seats 4. We were a party of five.

Dropped by - just as a pitstop for a coke. Was tempted for a taco with beef. Only waited for a minut. Served myself some juicy salsa. Sat outside under a parasol and enjoyed the taco and coke.

Every time we are in Carlsbad, we HAVE to get large mixed [chocolate and vanilla] soft serves from Cessy's. That means when we are in Carlsbad for a week, we make a daily stop. I know there are much fancier places to get ice creams...More
