Hacienda Casa Blanca

Taco Tuesday on the patio at Hacienda Casa Blanca in El Cajon! One of my favorite Tuesday spots in SoCal. What really makes it though is the live music. Tuesday night regular performer is Michael J. Dwyer, a phenomenal singer-songwriter. Definitely worth checking out!


I went out on a limb recently for Taco Tuesday! A restaurant not necessarily known for Mexican fare really impressed me… D’Carlos is definitely firing on all cylinders when it comes to Taco Tuesday. There’s a nice selection of a la carte tacos, very reasonably priced, including carne asada; chicken; fish; shrimp; and carnitas. Add a side of black beans or Spanish rice for only $1.25 more.

I ordered one carne asada and one carnitas. Both were outstanding! Each made with unique toppings appropriate to their protein style. Tortillas were soft flour, and fresh. Meat was well proportioned and authentic tasting. My favorite of the two was the carnitas by a hair. Included sides of lime wedges and an excellent, flavorful salsa. Spanish rice was sort of odd given that it was made with a thin, long grain rice that I’m not used to. The taste and cooking style though was definitely legit and on point.

On the Border

One of my favorite spots for Taco Tuesday is On the Border! I always mix & match with an outstanding ground beef, barbacoa, and chicken.
