This is San Diego and you can't swing a golf club with out hitting the ball into a taco shop. So what makes this one special? It's hard to say, but it is at the top of my list for Mexican food. The locals are here once a week if they are shy, two to three if they are hungry (in any of the 24 hours of the day,) and more often if they appreciate an excellent, inexpensive, and filling meal. The ratings here might not be good, but that is only because of the fast food tables and styrofoam plates. Since you don't eat those, this place is almost 5 stars. And do not be put off by the bars around the open kitchen-counter they are a quaint tribute to the past when this neighborhood was strictly gang turf. Those days are gone and the neighbor hood and this place are family friendly. It is open 24 hours and is good before or after a Padre game, or if you partied too hard at the Turf Club for drinks and not steaks. A good Carne Asada burrito will soak up all that gin and juice and mitigate your hangover. The Carne Asada Fries are a must have.

From Business: Established in 2016. This location was already operating when our Family acquired it. We gave it a 360 twist by adding our own recipes and our own kind of custome…
I eat here three times a week! The service is friendly and my Vegetarian burrito is perfect, I never have to ask them to add or take anything off. M…
Came here with some friends after hearing pretty good things about their tacos. Unfortunately I didn't think they were anything to brag about. I ordered one mahi mahi taco and one salmon taco both grilled. I forgot to order them on flour tortillas instead of corn which was my mistake but a total bummer. I wasn't necessarily fond of the marinade they used for the fish and in hind site I should have gotten the beer battered. It was hard to get really excited about these tacos when Oscars is right across the street. On a different note the carne asada fries were very good with a lot of different flavors in there. Some of my friends has burritos which they enjoyed as well.
The place is kind of hidden but worth looking for. Down the old 905 HWY until you hit Sanyo St. turn right, down to Airway Dr then right again and it will be the firts entrance on your left hand side "LA LOTERIA" I work around that area and they are always opening new little places but none good. My co-workers and I thought we'd give this place a shot and we are glad we did. The food has really good flavor and the service is AWESOME!!! Their tortilla soup is to die for but you need to request extra tortillas since you will need them!!! HIGHLY recommend this place!!! 9335 Airway Rd San Diego CA 92154 Phone: (619) 591-9973.
Very good food and people but some time they missed order today I visited 2 time I missed order and second time she missed take order instead of 3 all pastor taco she ordered 1..but that's fine. I called they said rest one will be ready but the cashier 3 who is working at 6.40 very rude and don't know how to talk customers. Other than that every thing is awesome. .that cashier 3 very misbehaving. .
The cashier collected my cash payment, then without washing his hands handled food. He was heating up my tortilla for the Carne Asada burrito I ordered and he flipped it, tapped it and put his dirty hands all over the tortilla as if he didn't care because he saw me looking. Then, they had flies everywhere. Food did not taste fresh either. That was my 1st and last. Disgusting place!!!
Don't waster your time or money on this place. They used to be a great local spot in San Diego. I don't know if they changed ownership or what but the service is terrible. I had a bartender be downright rude to me. Their are way too many places in San Diego for good Mexican food. You don't have to put up with crappy service and overpriced drinks.
They are the very good at customer service and the food is just like what we grew up with, excellent!!!! Although they are in San Diego, we make the trip, from Menifee CA, when we need their food, or want to celebrate for any silly reason. The atmosphere is cool too! Love the wait staff and the positive attitudes we always encounter there.
We had a delicious brunch at Miguel's. The serving of coconut French toast was very generous and delicious. Even though we all ordered breakfast/brunch items, we were still served some yummy chips and salsa while we waited for our meals. The server was attentive and kept our beverages re-filled.
Everything from start to finish was great! service, food, drink, location... all perfect. I highly recommend you get the Tequila Lime Shrimp appetizer. Best shrimp I have ever had. chips/salsa were excellent. I had the sante fe fish tacos which were delicious. you won't be disappointed.
Very cozy neighborhood joint. I had the #15 which had refried beams and rice with a fish taco and scallop burrito. Seriously some of the best I've ever had. Great prices and very chill. I'd I lived nearby this would be a regular spot. Unfortunately, I'm just visiting. Check it out!
