I hate driving to downtown San Diego, but on the way back from a long flight my husband asked if I was hungry and if I wanted to try here. I have always heard about El Indio, but we don't venture downtown too often because...More

The food here was absolutely delicious! You will not go hungry and will not break the bank for a decent meal. My husband had the carnitas tacos and I had the asada tacos, both were beyond expected! The only tough part is finding parking.

I looked this place up and we travelled down to India Street which has a number of good bars and restaurants. This was a feast of tacos, nachos, it had the lot, oh and the frozen margaritas were excellent.

From the fresh flour and corn tortillas to the corn on the cob, this place doesn't disappoint! Excellent chicken and steak fajita burritos. Excellent tacos. Something for everyone and it's all made FRESH!

Food was very good. Large menu with lots to pick from. Not the best at helping tourist figure out what to order. Line can get long but goes quickly. Food can be spicy. The fish tacos were excellent as are the homemade tortillas. Be sure...More

There's no mystery why this unassuming, family run restaurant has been a success for 77 years. It's because they serve generous helpings of scrumptious, authentically Mexican food at reasonable prices, and they make every customer feel at home. In fact, while we were there, the...More
