Tasty Mexican food. We ordered the California Burrito (it is enormous - easily 2 meals!) and the Enchiladas Verdes con Pollo Plate (huge plate of food). Good flavor, fresh/authentic ingredients, large menu, good prices, quick service. We had walked past 3 other Mexican restaurants at lunch time (1pm) - the others had maybe 1-2 tables with customers while this place... More

Oscar at the register is awsome! So helpful! The carna asada french fries are to die for. The salsa bar has lots to offer. Go and enjoy!!

Very casual. Excellent selection of Mexican food. Fresh ingredients. Quick service. You may eat in or on picnic tables outside. Great place to stop wheel driving down the coast.

Food was old stale and subpar. at that price point I don't want yesterday's food heated up. The carne asada was bland on a scale of, wait you couldn't rate it it was just meat. Very disappointing. They did have a good selection of salsas.

I love simple taco shops. This one is tasty and the service is good. Burritos are huge. Tacos are tasty. Listen, taco shops like this are polarizing. It is a GREAT taco dive...enjoy it for what it is!

I will qualify this review by saying that I have only eaten the burritos. Because they are huge, and fantastic, and I dont want to try anything else. I generally like to venture out on different types of foods, but not at Colimas. Eat the burrito, and plan for it to be two meals that you will finish in one... More

Oh my God. Hands down, best Mexican food I've ever had! I am from Colorado and I thought we had good Mexican food but Colima's puts every other Mexican eatery I've had to shame! Colima's is a humble, authentic hole-in-the-wall in Oceanside and they have a great menu! Everyone kept recommending the California burrito, but I got the Quesadilla Supreme.... More

A simple place to get your Mexican food quickly. I go simple with things like tacos or burritos. I find the beef lacking flavor so go with the chicken. The portions are huge so don't over order. Grab a couple of taco's and head to the beach and watch sunset!

I used to eat here when i was stationed at Pendleton. 20 some years later i brought my family and shared some memories. Nothing fancy but I Love the food. It's right of the beach. Kinda sketchy at night so don't walk the pier at night. Hope you enjoy.
