California has it all figured out when it comes to Mexican food. But with this many restaurants to choose from, you definitely need a cheat sheet to help you see what’s what. We’ve got you covered! For the most authentic Mexican food in San Diego, check out these establishments:
Las Cuatro Milpas
1857 Logan Ave, San Diego, CA 92113
Las Cuatro Milpas is as authentic as it gets. The menu at this little shop is simple, which you’ll find is one of the telltale markers of the most authentic Mexican food experiences. The prices are cheap, and the food is hearty. Our favorite is the chorizo con huevos, and the tacos are to die for. Go on a Saturday if you want to enjoy the menudo, because they only make it once a week!
The Blind Burro
639 J St, San Diego, CA 92101
Whereas Las Cuatro is small and humble, The Blind Burro is a little more extravagant. You can enjoy a much wider Mexican menu here if you’d like to expand your horizons. Try the Poblano & Corn Flautas (roasted poblano chiles, grilled corn, queso oaxaca, crispy flour tortilla, shredded lettuce, cotija, and roasted tomatillo-habanero salsa) if you want something a little spicy to start the meal off with. Enjoy your West Coast seafood the Mexican way with the Cilantro-Lime Grilled Shrimp (avocado corn relish, chipotle aioli, crispy jalapeño, bacon crumble, and queso fresco). But don’t just take our word for it! Pay them a visit and take your pick from this delectable menu.
560 Fourth Ave, San Diego, CA 92101
You’ll love the cozy warm atmosphere you find in La Puerta. This place is the perfect cross between a comfortable Mexican ranch aesthetic and that of a modern Mexican bar. Try the Torta La Puerta (achiote pork, arrachera steak, turkey, ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and jalapeños), one of their signature dishes, and when you’re looking for something to wash it down with, try one of the 100+ tequilas in La Puerta’s collection! You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu here. (Especially the grilled tacos!)
