Review №1

A friend of ours who visits Mexico frequently recommended this restaurant to us. The Camarones Costa Azul (large shrimp stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon) was to die for -- Crispy, tasty and the shrimp were not overcooked. The entrees are served with fluffy rice, beans and your choice of flour or corn tortillas. The service was excellent, as well. Also fresh, crispy chips. Lovely place.

Always great service and food!

Review №3

Everything was perfect!! The service was delightful and the meal delicious. My only question is when will I come back for the bottomless sangria!!

Review №4

Went here for Cinco de Mayo. It was okay. Staff arent super personable but were attentive. We got the carne asada tacos. The tacos were good but the rice served was room temperature to cold. Chips tasted like they were fried a couple times over so neither of us were super fond of it. We got the mango margaritas with some kind of tamarind straw and again was just okay. Drinks are made by the servers and are made pretty weak or at least our batch was. My biggest issue was the cleanliness of the place. There was junk like straws, used napkins and other stuff on the floor the entire time we were there. The worst were the bathrooms! They were disgusting. We notified the manager of it and he thanked us and said that no one had told him until now. That kind of tells me they don't regularly check them. Anyway it's possible since it was Cinco de Mayo that we caught them at a bad time so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Don't think we'll be back though

Very good place as always the food is great

Review №6

I knew about this place because they would have a stand at the Oceanside sunset market from time to time. I found myself on their neck of the woods and decided to stop by since I was a fan of what they had to offer at the market.Their full menu offers great items, food is delicious, and the atmosphere is wonderful. I definitely want to come back and try everything!

Review №7

I normally never leave reviews but let me tell you... The food was AMAZING! I ordered the enchiladas and honesty my taste buds fell in love. The Person I was with also agreed the food was delicious

Review №8

I ordered carne asada tacos and they put shredded lettuce on them which I think made the tortilla all wet and soggy and I was not able to eat the tacos because they just fell apart. I have never seen anyone put lettuce and shredded cheese on carne asada tacos. Beans had a weird flavor and the rice didnt have much flavor.

Review №9

Love this place. The food is delicious, authentic and worth every Penny. The service is great whenever you go. I also recommend their buffet on sundays!! I can't wait to go back.

Review №10

The food is very good, will definitely be coming back

Review №11

One of my favorite Mexican Restaurants! Very clean, excellent customer service, food is amazing! I really reccomend this place!

Review №12

The hype from the reviews weren't as I expected. The food was good but wasn't to what I thought it would be, I definitely wouldn't take the drive from escondido again.

Review №13

Muy EXCELLENTE!!! This is DEF our new MEXICAN RISTORANTÉ!!! Service was really good but the food was AWESOME!!!

Review №14

Favorite restaurant. Great costumer service. Made me feel righ at home.

Review №15

We have had nothing but good service and good food.

Review №16

This place is really good.

Review №17

Tucked-away Gem. Salsa bar is one of the better ones I have seen of nearby Mexican food. I walked in and ordered takeaway but this place would be nice to sit down at. Will be coming here again.

Review №18

Really impressed with this small sit down Mexican restaurant. The food is satisfying. The Fundido on the mini tacos add a little amp to the usual. The carnitas on Huaraches full of flavor and had a nice crispiness to the edges. A fan of the rice and beans. Better than average service. Draft beers on tap are a nice accompaniment to the spicy meal. Plenty of parking. Looking forward to the next meal here.

Review №19

Food is alright. Although their Pambazos are a little salty, their Alambres are good!

Review №20

Everything my wife and I have had here has been super delicious. Love this place.

Review №21

Awesome food... Seriously! Priced right as well (or better than right). Great service as well. I LOVE this place! Wish it was closer to me. I would go there a lot more often.

Review №22

It is nice to have a Mexican sit down restaurant that serves good food in a quaint atmosphere and this is it. Straightforward food as So Cal residents would come to expect in a small family style establishment. The queso fundido adds a nice element to just mini tacos. The huaraches large and filling. Great rice and beans. Tap beers available. Excellent service from staff. Plenty of parking.

Review №23

Food was authentic mexican food. Very good food and Carlos was our server.

Review №24

My first pambazos, so delicious. Service was very fast and friendly. This place has a great menu, definitely will be back to try more authentic Mexican dishes.

Review №25

Best Mexican authentic place to eat. Sundays open for brunch at 10 AM delicious meals

Review №26

Great, authentic Mexican food, friendly service, cute decor

Review №27

I like coming here for the delicious Michelada's. However, I was disappointed there wasn't any appetizers on the menu. Hopefully the owner will soon add a variety to choose from.. Other than that the service was excellent the atmosphere is pleasant. I will definitely come back.

Review №28

Food is good, service is quick and friendly, just a little on the pricier side for lunch.

Review №29

Family came here for my sisters' birthday for the first time and we were not disappointed. There was 11 in our party and they accommodated us without fuss. Jose was our waiter and he by far is the best waiter I/we have had in a long time. You can really tell he enjoys his job! The food OMG was so flavorful and Jose helped each of us to figure out what best suited for our taste. Best experience overall that I have had in a restaurant in a very long time. This place is a must!!

Review №30

Food was great - chicken and carne asada was juicy, corn tortillas were home-made and even grilled cactus on the side. Salsas were very good as well. Good place to watch a soccer game also.

Review №31

Love this place. They make you feel at home. The chips are the best. You've got to try the Mexican Alambre. The service is great. They are friendly and quick. Constantly checking on the tables. We go out of our way just to come here because the food and the service is that good. Thank you to the La Casa De Los Alambres staff!

Review №32

I come here once or twice a month, but this morning wasn't a good IDEA. The owners son didn't seem to care about my business and huried my order. And there was one couple in restaurant. I'll keep coming back, but be more consciousness about customers or you won't have any. Tim

Review №33

My parents, husband and I love this place! Food tastes so good. Every employee is super nice and such a pleasure. We come here at least twice a week. When family visits us from out of town, we bring them here and they love it. Keep up the good work guys!

Review №34

Really good service, excellent food and large portions. It's our new regular for Mexican.

Review №35

Authentic cuisine. Genuine hospitality. Very clean, comfortable. A hidden jewel.

Review №36

This place is amazing. Very friendly and helpful. We were visiting San Diego it was my daughters birthday they made our evening. We will most definitely be coming back when we visit. The waiter''s name was Jose and he is awesome!!

Review №37

My girlfriend and I came to this restaurant and the food is so delicious :) I really recommend people to come try it out.

Review №38

Yay for sit down Mexican with draft beer!

Review №39

Disappointing. Tasteless, greasy Al pastor quesadilla. Not a smile anywhere among service staff or customer...

Review №40

This restaurant is amazing!! It was my first time having dinner there and food couldn't have been more delicious and on point! I loved every bite!!!! MUST go restaurant if you are looking for bomb Mexican food ️

Review №41

Excellent service, good food. Well worth it

Review №42

The food is excellent the best thing I will recommend it to all come and visit

Review №43

Food was delicious. Authentic Mexico City cuisine. Service was great. Its a very clean restaurant. Friendly staff. Food is made freshly when ordered. I will be coming back to try the rest of their food dishes.

Review №44

Good, casual. Reasonably priced.

Review №45

Sooo good! Whole family comes for their brunch on Sunday and it never disappoints! Plus the owners are so since!! Not only is the food delicious and authentic but the owners care about their customers. Highly recommend!!

Review №46

Good food n great services

Review №47

Had the Alambres Poblano, it was like god came in my mouth. My fiance' had the bacon wrapped cheese stuffed shrimp, so damned good. Service was on point, even though we rolled in with a group of 11, they took care of us with no problem. Jose was very knowledgeable and pointed us to what we wanted. I'll eat here again anytime I'm close.

Review №48

This is a hidden gem for sure! Honestly one of the best Mexican food restaurants I've eaten at and growing up in San Diego that's saying a lot! The food I believe is more of an Aztec and Central or Southern Mexican recipes. Can't wait to try the whole menu.

Review №49

The carne asada quesadilla was good but I'm not a fan of white cheddar. Just my preference. Hot sauce was good and people there were nice.

Review №50

Love the shrimp alambre plate it's off the hook, and their draft uff 32 Oz muy huge!!!

Review №51

Amazing different than sd usual

Review №52

The alambres were really tasty with a good amount of meat. We had horchata for drinks and it was good as well! I tried the tlacoyo de chicharron and I didn't love the chicharrón. The outside of it was really good with nopales but I couldn't handle the flavor of the chicharron. Its possible that due to the amount of fat. I would definitely be back!

Review №53

First time amazing- greeted with chips and salsa. Intro from owner. Food was excellent. Second visit , barely a hello, alambres meal way over priced. Good. But way over priced . Maybe if given more attention, we wouldn't have noticed but $18 for a bacon wrapped alambre I can't even find on menu... maybe a tough night but clearly a lack of long term loyalty. Has such high hopes.

Review №54

Al pastor is great, salsa bar has everything.

Review №55

The food was good the service was good. Up intil I had a California burrito witch is $7 and I asked for some shrimp, witch I understand comes with extra charge . But I was charged an extra 7.50 for 4 shrimps in my burrito and then the owner tried to tell me it was my fault because I didnt ask. So I got two burritos for 14.50 and paid and extra 15.00 for 8 shrimp. Ridiculous.

Review №56

Service was amazing just as amazing as the food i order a mexican alambre

Review №57

Expensive and food is just okI'm from mexico city by the way..

Review №58

Review №59

Wow!!! Best Mexican food I've ever had. Cheese and carnitas queadilla with fresh made corn tortillas. The salsa bar is excellent. Great service. Great value. Great atmosphere. Full bar. We will be back.

Review №60

This is the best Mexican food in Vista! Authentic Mexican plates, at a very decent price. I introduced this place to my family a few months ago and we have yet to be disappointed with our food. Good for to-go orders, or eat-in and have a beer at the bar!The burritos, flautas, rolled tacos, and everything else we've had has been really tasty. I recommend this small family owned business anyone looking for quick and good bite of authentic Mexican food!

Review №61

Great place! First came across their food at a brewery at one of their trucks. Authentic food for a great price with big portions.Have enjoyed everything I have ever had their. Leo (owner) is a stand up guy as well.

Review №62

Fabulous service and amazing food. If you don't order a Alambre you're doing it wrong. Also highly recommend the mini taco queso fundido plate with al pastor. And put that green sauce on everything! Can't wait to go again for the menudo!

Review №63

Authentic Mexico city. Very eclectic. Almost Italian and still native. Love the cactus in the meat dishes. My first time

Review №73

Great food. Great service

Review №74

Went around 1:30pm. Empty. Food was less than good. Service, weak, even though I was the only one there.

Review №75

It was our first time eating in this restaurant and I was not impressed at all we had the buffet sit inThe food was not good at all we had some of the enchiladas, egg,chicken nuggets, French fries, toast and other stuff and all of these items were cold to the point where we had to ask them to heat it up for us they had a station of fresh waters and they were so worm I had to ask for ice at the end our bill it was $59.00 for 2 adults and 1 10 year old it was a big disappointment on the food and price us personally will not be coming back

Review №76

Delicious, authentic, Mexican food. The service is great and they always have a good beer special.

Review №77

It is great place , actually was closing when we arrived and stayed open just to serve us awesome thanks.

Review №78

The most amazing customer service. The owner is seriously so humble. And the food is great.

Review №79

Food is good but margaritas are basically water and sugar. We asked for a shot of tequila on the side and it was basically water.

Review №80

The food and atmosphere is what you should expect. If you have no idea what an Alambre is I would venture to try them all. I've had the Hawaiian many times as it is my favorite but there has not been anything on the menu I did not like. I keep forgetting to add a picture because I keep eating it before I snap a pic.

Review №81

The food is delicious and reminds me to my home town. Very good food I recommend this place

Review №82

Expensive,not very good food, got my order wrong. Bad experience.

Review №83

One of the best Mexican Restaurants I have been. The food is amazing…

Review №84

I asked for queso blanco and first they brought me shredded cheese, then they brought me a bowl of melted shredded cheese. My kids only picked at their meals because they didn't like the rolled tacos.

Review №85

Very good Mexican food!

Review №86

Friendly staff and really good food, absolutly coming back.

Review №87

Amazing salsas, Alambre, and service. A do over! Delicious, authentic Mexican food in Vista.

Review №88

Great food and service

Review №89

1st time here. No carne asada rolled tacos...only pollo. Next asked waiter for limes ... he forgot which is fine, however when I reminded him he rolled his eyes y got them from the buffet instead of getting me fresh. The limes were dryed out. He started off friendly...then changed on us.

Review №90

The food was disgusting for how much we paid. Theres barely any food for a to go plate, the guacamole was old, it was basically brown and had a very old taste. Las Brisas in san marcos is 10x better, instead of staying local I will just drive the 10 minutes to get good food.

Review №91

My husband and I have been in search for a authentic Mexican restaurant and we have found it. The food is delicious and the Mango Margarita is to die for.

Review №92

Sadly, the burritos that were once the legend of Vista are now full of gristle-laden carne asada and putrid guacamole. Truly, the guacamole is terrible here, so I always ask for no guac. Well, yesterday I got guacamole in the burrito and when I got the replacement non-guacamole-soiled burrito it was gristle in every bite. Not only this, but the enchilada sauce gave me an upset stomach and heartburn. Same for my friend. Unfortunately I'm going to need to take a break from this place and maybe try again in 2018. I will say that the staff are all very nice and our usual waitress remains a sweetheart. Something needs to change with the food though. YMMV, best of luck.

Review №93

Best Mexican food in Vista... My wife and I will not go any where else around here. Tried them all and we keep coming back.

Review №94

Very good place to come and eat now this is Real authentic Mexican food I'm from northern California and every time we come down we come to this restaurant you got to try the alambres my favorite very good and authentic anyone that disagrees are the same people that believe taco bell is real Mexican food lol
