Old Town Mexican Cafe

San Diego's most well known restaurant for more than 30 years, Old Town Mexican Cafe is the fiesta headquarters of Old Town and the rest of San Diego. Enjoy a daily happy hour and the best tasting homemade flour tortillas in San Diego made right on the spot.

Old Town is one of San Diego's top attractions, and all the restaurants in the area are nearly always packed. OTMC has a bit of an edge over the competition: the "tortilla ladies" who make over 7000 tortillas every day, strolling mariachis, and an atmosphere that's unfailingly festive. Then there's the food. Most folks rave about the carnitas while other good choices are pozole, albondigas soup, menudo, Mexican style ribs or rotisserie chicken, Steak Azteca, chicken mole, or a big old burrito stuffed with chile verde, machaca, carne asada, or beans. Wash it all down with an ice cold margarita or cerveza.
