El pastor tacos were great but shrimp enchilada was amazing, plus they serve breakfast all day which accommodated the 12 year olds request. Only reason I did not give full stars is the flies are a little out of control, a little gross!

There is usually a line for this place with good reason. The carnitas and the home made salsa are the best in town and we also love the huevos rancheros. It's a noisy family, local hangout for sure.

As far as I am concerned, La Siesta has the best Mexican food in San Clemente (and I live here). The ambiance is kinda old school, but they have cool surf videos on the flat-panel, great wait-staff and a comfortable atmosphere. If you like spicy, be sure to ask for the salsa picante they keep in the back, as it is some of the best you'll ever have. The normal "table salsa" is excellent, but Angus needs a little kick in his...

We always enjoy going here and are taking friends there tonight. They are visiting from out of town and this is our "go to" Mexican restaurant (skip Nick's South, it's overpriced and not as good).
