We loved Don Carlos Taco Shop! They have excellent prices for huge servings. He even has a secret menu you can ask for. We had their nachos, which was mixed with french fries-amazing! Ryan, the owner, was so friendly. We were impressed by how delicious the food was and even more so by the low prices! This is a great spot to eat lunch before heading to La Jolla Cove!

I am normally a burrito or taco guy, but this place has the most amazing tamales. Don't get me wrong, the tacos and burritos are great, so are the nachos, but you have to try the tamales.

My husband and I love this place. We are "locals" so we go all the time and it's always good. It's authentic and the burritos are two meals (at least) for me and even my husband thinks they are huge. He's a fan of the carnitas and I love the veggie burrito. Fish tacos/burritos are also wonderful and they are known for their tamales. Go back often... The owner, Ryan, is so friendly and so supportive of the local schools and sports teams.

Ridiculously cheap Cali-Mex food. It's not gourmet but it's delicious!
