We were out with friends and they suggested Ranas for dinner. It was a first time for all of us. When we arrived we saw a crowded casual dining room. We were seated and our server was excellent. In fact, the entire staff was very funny and warm. I tried the Mole Rojo and my wife had the Carne Asada... More

This was my first time here, and I will be back. The food was excellent. I got the Shrimp a Diabala. Entrees come with soup, and the soup yesterday was excellent. Also comes with rice and beans or you can get just rice or just beans. My friends loved their food as well. Service was great.

As the name implies, it's a different kind of Mexican. I know nothing about regional differences in Mexican food, however you will sense that what's prepared here is of a different nature than what is served at most other Mexican restaurants. Most importantly, however, is that the quality is very good. The service has been good when we've been there,... More

Casa de Oro's best kept secret! The food and service here is great. I really like the spice and selection. This really needs to be on your list to try.

Most Mexican in San Diego is pretty distinctively San Diego... however this little gem specialises in food in the style of Mexico City, including one of my favourites, the huarache! (means sandal in Spanish, basically it's a sope as big as a sandal!) The chilaquiles are great as well!
