To enjoy delicious authentic mexican food with your family or friends, go to Ortega's Place. Be sure to order their table-prepared guacamole. Their fresh cilantro and other herbs mixed with a fresh avocado had so much flavor that our picky eater, who won't normally touch guacamole, couldn't get enough. Enjoy!

There are so many great Mexican restaurants in San Diego that its hard to recommend this one but it is pretty good and very affordable. It's pretty authentic and you wont be disappointed with the food.

This is a great deal - shrimp ceviche home made every morning by the owner. The portion is large and piled generously on top of two corn tostadas with fresh lime and home made salsa. You can't go wrong and it's under $4.00. Two fish tacos are on sale this week for $3.50. They are light, fresh, and full of fish, not just a lot of breading. You can't go wrong here. It's authentic and it feels like you are in Mexico.

This is THE spot for budget, real, delicious Mexican food. They've got a killer carne asada burrito, carne asada fries, or carne asada fries burrito. Very local place, all the high school kids from the school across the street will come and grab a quick dinner here after practice, and lots of local Mexican workers will come and eat lunch here. My personal favorite is to come and order a carne asada burrito to go, then drive down to the Cove and have a Mexican picnic in the park. Plus, you can get a full delicious meal for under $7, a rarity in La jolla.
