Went there on a weekend and was very crowded. Didn't have to wait very long fortunately. Had a couple of tacos and each family member had something different. We all loved the food and it was very tasty. We had a toddler with us who made a mess around him and on the floor. The waitress was very good with... More

Funky taco place with superb margaritas! We shared fish and shrimp tacos and both were superb and very tasty. Reasonable prices and good service, would be hard pushed to find a better taco restaurant in La Jolla

Puesto was disappointing to say the least. The service received only a 10% tip and the food was only ok. We were seated rather quickly and attended to by our server almost immediately. It is a cute, cozy restaurant with open windows. We ordered water which came quickly and then guacamole and our tacos. My sister ordered a salad. The... More

Seriously good tacos, with some unique options (eg nopalitos and zucchini, porky belly). Delicious. Wouldn't recommend necessarily for a business lunch - can be messy and you will smell like tacos all day😊. Nice quiet street side table seating as well as indoor table options

We really enjoyed the evening at "Puesto". Great Food and super service. Taco of the month was a great experience and not to forget about the great beer selection that is offered. Obe should not miss the homemade Guacamole, which is the best we had when visiting the westcoast

Thank Lutz K
