The best chicken soup I've ever tasted in a restaurant, hands down! Nice atmosphere and friendly people. The quesadillas are great too.

Go for the chicken soup and then enjoy the rest. Everything tastes great. Generous portions. Authentic flavors.

Everything is great here our family favorite for years. We've had them cater lots of fun events , we'd order amount we needed picked up always friendly courteous service. Of course chicken soup is a must...but we love it all. Carnitas, carne Assad, fish burritos all good...go enjoy. The prices have gone up this year I assume to compensate for... More

Lourdes is a "hole in the wall" Mexican restaurant (and I don't mean that in a mean way) that serves some of the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. Especially known for the chicken soup which is better than your mothers!

A hit with the whole family. On a cold rainy evening our family was in the mood for authentic Mexican and Lourdes delivered. We ordered everything from the soup to a burrito, to tacos and enchiladas. All were excellent!

We looked on TripAdvisor for a good place to have Mexican food on New year's Eve. This was a delight. If in the area, make the trip off I 15 and visit Lourdes's.

Unquestionably the best mexican style chicken soup, kettle cooked all day long, home made stock and plenty of chicken and spices (on the side if needed). They serve rice, not noodles, so beware if you are expecting noodle house.

Amazing destination. Off the beaten track, close to Escondido Blvd and 7th Stree Small by restaurant standards but incredibly popular. I've never been there when it was empty, and crowded at mealtime.
