Puesto has all many of tacos at a good price, plus many other Mexican dishes. It is possible to find dishes without being too spicy. Servers are helpful. They have vegetarian offerings, too. It's popular, so there may be a short wait.

We were looking forward to some good Mexican food on arrival in SanDiego and this place didn't disappoint. Busy spot. Food came out quickly. Fish tacos really good. Only gripe was they seemed in a hurry to get us through.
