Taco Bell

I love a good wet burrito and have had many throughout SoCal over the years. When I discovered that the Bell had a smothered burrito, I had to try it. It was surprisingly tasty! I’d recommend ordering this but I don’t think it’s on their menu anymore.


On the Border

I’ve never been a fan of French fries in Mexican food, but these California tacos at OTB are excellent!

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

I’m pleased to report that the A/C was crankin’ at Nuevo Girl! Super comfortable and relaxing after working all day. I ordered my favorite dish, the steak enchiladas. Two huge, fresh corn tortillas stuffed with grilled carne asada steak and cheese, smothered in their scratch made enchilada sauce. Served with rice & beans, $13.99.

Biggest and best enchiladas in town, that I can tell you! I love how the plate comes out as hot as an acetylene torch. The melted cheese gets all crispy on the edges and melts into the rice, etc. Service was absolutely remarkable! Fortunately they offer a smaller version of this with only one enchilada. Not sure what I was thinking, but I have to lay down now…

Miguel’s Cocina

Outstanding Enchiladas Rancheras at Miguel’s in 4S Ranch! House-made spicy ground beef with onions & cheese, blanketed with a rich and flavorful tomato ranchero sauce, avocado & crema.

Sombrero Mexican Food

My favorite place for “San Diego-Style” Mexican food is always Sombrero. For decades! Here are some of my absolute favorite Taco Tuesday selections. Fish taco and calamari taco. Made very simply with shredded cabbage, pico de gallo, chipotle crema and lime.

Don Diego’s

Outstanding rolled taco appetizer at Don Diego’s of Indian Wells. Also one of the most stunning Mexican restaurant dining rooms I’ve been in.


Outstanding Baja Grill chicken burrito at Rubio’s! Rather small, but super tasty.

Taco Bell

Dinner recently at the Bell; finally tried the Doubledilla! I wasn’t quite sure how to pronounce it so it left me, and likely the cashier somewhat embarrassed. It’s got a double portion of grilled marinated steak, creamy jalapeno sauce and a 3 cheese blend, all grilled up in a flour tortilla. Chicken was also an option. Either is only $4.99. I requested it “double-pressed” which crisps up the tortilla a little more and really melts that cheese. One of the best things I’ve had at Taco Bell. Served with chips and a surprisingly tasty salsa.

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Best chips & salsa and dare I say, best happy hour in Ramona!

La Cocina

Decent combination plates for a taco shop but why do they always have to heap a mountain of lettuce on everything? Cheese enchilada and beef taco… If you couldn’t tell.
