Okay, I am from the east coast, but sometimes work in San Diego and family in Ventura! I make. Point to go here every time I am within a couple of hours ride. Even the horribly bumpy interstate to LA! The food is that good!...More

Really cool decor and atmosphere. Server wasn't that interested in providing good service. Food was very tasty, portions generous.

Best chicken mole in California. Tender, moist meat, richly complex mole sauce. Even the rice and refried beans are the best anywhere. Service is friendly and efficient, and I love the decor. Can't beat the prices, either. Just go there!

I have been coming here since the mid 1970's. Of the two major restaurants in this area this has always been my favorite.

My family and I have been eating at Tony's for over 30 years. Now run by Tony's children and grandchildren, you can count on the same quality of food and excellent service that are a long tradition. Everything is delicious,!!

We were introduced to Tony's Jacal by friends of ours who live nearby. Since, we have been here a few on our way to/from Del Mar. It's off the beaten path, but way worth the search. The menu is extensive, so I'm sure they have...More
