Puesto 

Screen Shot 2017-05-05 at 2.28.53 PM
Prior to Puesto, many San Diegans had departed home to pursue other desires in other places. Sure, we found a few hotspots, a few places away from home, but it has always been Chef Luisteen’s tacos that brought us back to our senses and returned us to San Diego. His undying fervor for utterly re-defining the taco brought us back to our hometown of San Diego to begin a family-owned business, a delightful taco stand we’d never even dreamed of. Now that we’re tacoteurs, we have never looked back.

What’s in store? How about handmade maíz azul stone-ground tortillas, sustainable meats and seafood, slow-cooked guisados, and made from scratch, mouth-watering scratch salsas? Puesto is a merriment of fundamental Mexican flavors and an homage to the diverse palate of Mexico City.

Our bar features freshly made margaritas, house made aguas frescas, and wines from the burgeoning Valle de Guadalupe region of Baja.

The Puesto Party Philosophy still maintains that each and every celebration will be large, lively, booming and yet refined. At Puesto’s you’ll observe a bevy of fashionable people from all walks of life consuming great food and enjoying colorful conversations. But don’t fret! Your debutante grandmother is also there drinking her portion of the best tequila. Our parties are dedicated to her as well as anyone else that comes to Puesto for merriment.

Opened in 1945 by Buzzy Martinez and affectionately nicknamed “The Ranch” by La Jolla residents, Verdes El Ranchero is one of the few restaurants to have outlived La Jolla’s ever changing tide from an old-fashioned seaside community to one of international acclaim. Since 2009, it is has been owned and operated by the Green family who have called the Barber Tract home for three decades. Gloria and her daughter Megan tirelessly work to preserve the cordiality and warmth that keep “The Ranch” an establishment where it is not unusual to observe four generations of families enjoying the finest Mexican cuisine La Jolla has to offer.

Verdes El Ranchero offers a full bar featuring a wide array of Tequilas, handmade Margaritas, and, of course, Mexican beers. The menu offers a range of Mexican dishes from chile rellenos, carnitas, enchiladas, burritos, and scrumptious tamales. Of course, fresh salads, tostadas and soups are also available as well as much more!

Visitors to Verdes El Ranchero will find themselves bounded by the cheerful colors of Mexico that ever exude warmth and relaxation. Enjoy rich wood accents and hand painted murals, as well, some of which date back to the early 1960’s, and of course, local artwork for sale.
