The carne asada fries are fork-share-able and so flippin good! Also tried a pork adobado burrito, rolled tacos, and the chicken quesadilla is the size of a newborn child so just be prepared! Everything is delicious, huge portions, excellent prices, and fast service!

La Posta 24 Hour Mexican food is good food fast. You can tell how good the food is when most anytime of the day or night you can see customers lined up waiting to order their food. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. It is a no frills type establishment: just good tasting Mexican food served up fresh... More

La posta is a typical San Diego Taco shop with quick service and very good food, what sets them apart is the special quesadia (burrito wrapped in a quesadia), the Machito burrito(half carne,half chili relleno burrito) and that they do single portions of Carne asada fries... they have one of the hottest hot sauces in the city. The food is... More

This place offers the best buy in Mexican food, anywhere. In my experience, the price, quantity and quality of the food is unmatched.. Try the Chili Verde Burrito (They'll ask if you want beans or rice, but I ask for both.) or one of their combination plates. It is all takeout, although you can eat at the tables outside and...

This is a great place to go for Mexican Food. My machaca plate was enough for lunch and dinner. My friend's chicken burrito was large enough that he didn't need dinner.

It's really the best rolled tacos I've had. And the California burrito is out of this world. Opened twenty four seven, i can never get enough!

Delicious old school Mexican joint, the hotsauce is some of the hottest in the city, and the price is right. They have a thing called a special quesadilla witch is a whole burrito wrapped in a quesadilla. Also try the Machito burrito witch is a Carne Asada burrito with a chili releno and rice inside of it...

Nice liquor store near by if you need to pick up something to compliment your food on the way home ;) There are 2 concrete tables if you want to eat there but most do take... More

This place is great for breakfast, a perfect lunch spot, better for dinner, and a late-night staple. It was great for food when I was in my early 20s, and I still have cravings for it 15 years later (at very different times of day, and from much further away). The California burritos are among the best in San Diego... More

First timer here, the gentleman at the front gave me ideas on what to order. I ended up with the chicken burrito which i always get steak burritos. The food was fresh, had lots of flavor and so yummy. It looks like a hole in the wall place and it really is, but dont let that fool you. The food... More
