Amazing Happy Hour Prices!

This place has a ton of specials and a nice long happy hour all weekdays. (I think it's 3-7) Anyways, Monday and Tuesday they have $2 dollar margaritas. How could you go wrong with that?\r \r I also hear their Sunday brunch is really good.

El Fandango - Good Mexican Food!

Went there with some buddies after work and it was really good! We sat at the bar first and had a drink, pretty good margaritas. Chips and salsa was good. We all got different stuff, but I had the crepes on their specialty menu and they were very different but really good. Only semi-downside is the parking situation, but they have that big lot where people go to park to use the trolley. Wasn't a problem for us a... view more

GREAT SPECIAL- $15 TEQUILA TASTING!!!

I don't know what these other reviews are talking about--the service was great, the food was really good (I tend to judge mexican restaurants on their salsa, and it was some of the best I've had in Old Town)- and you can tell the place is very authentic and is one of the historical Old Town establishments. I had a work meeting at El Fandango last week and was very impressed. Our server was very attentive (refil... view more

WORST DINING EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD!

HORRIBLE DO NOT EAT HERE! we waited forevr for our waitress, waited 1 hr to gett our food and the waitress was terrible and rude. we unknowingly got a ""15 %gratuity fee"" added to our bill for sitting out side! ( we were sat there, not by choice) and when we asked about what these extra charges were she rudely exclaimed that we ""didnt have to tip if we didnt want to"" and stormed away. there were two tables next... view more

Romantic fireside dining, crowded on weekends, make reservation

Except delectable Mexican fare and singing mariachis at this romantic eatery, tucked away in San Diego's cute Mexican village. A mellow vibe entices diners to linger long hours and the wide menu tantalizes with traditional dishes and treats. We were not seated promptly but were able to wait at the bar. They claimed to seat us in 15 minutes, however we waited for more than 40 minutes though. The food was a delight! My... view more

NEVER again will I eat here!!!

We were in Old Town for the Cinco De Mayo celebration on Sunday 5-04-08 and decided to eat at El Fandago as the menu as presented outside the entrance looked pretty decent......... WRONG!!!!!!!!!\r The place to be expected was crowded but not packed and we were told that there were NO tables outside to eat at where we requested even tho we could see several empty places.\r We asked the young girl if we could eat o... view more

WORST MEXICAN FOOD & SHADY SERVERS

I'M FROM SAN DIEGO BUT MY PARENTS WERE VISITING FROM JAPAN. EL FANDANGO HAD THE WORST MEXICAN FOOD I'VE EVER HAD. THE SERVICE UP UNTIL THE CHECK WAS DECENT, DEFINITELY AT LEAST 15% TIP WORTHY. WHEN WE GOT OUR BILL WE NOTICED OUR SERVER (RAFAEL) ALREADY INCLUDED THE TIP, FOR A PARTY OF FOUR. I HAD INITIALLY THOUGHT THE TIP WAS OKAY, BUT REALIZED AFTER WE WERE HOME HE TIPPED HIMSELF 20%, DID NOT GIVE US A RECEIPT & GAV... view more

No kidding, 1 of the worst dining expiriences ever. Please read and don't go!

Starting from the beginning. Customer service is slow. You get chips and salsa quickly but they take too long to get your order in. Whenever you get your food, don't expect anything special. Expect the food to be on par with Taco Bell. Tasteless. Bar is small and cramped and there is no air conditioning in restaurant. They even tried to stick us with the bill for an additional dinner. Complained to waitress, manager,... view more
