We went here while on a weekend vacation to San Diego. The food was excellent. The salsa bar also was great. Parking is limited to on the street. We parked in a residential area about a block away. The atmosphere is very casual. You order at the counter and your food comes on Styrofoam plates with plastic utensils. Seating is also limited and was almost all full when we got there, plus a bunch of people coming to get take-out orders. Prices are cheap, portions are plenty (not too big, not too small). Overall, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was fine ? as long as you?re not expecting a nice sit-down restaurant.
