Get Delicioso Bites in La Jolla

California is home to some pretty cool things. Disneyland, Hollywood, beautiful beaches, just to name a few. It’s also home to the best Mexican cuisine in the country- especially in San Diego. Whether it’s Taco Tuesday, Cinco de Mayo, or just

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. So 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.

Their 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. Their parties are dedicated to her as well as anyone else that comes to Puesto for merriment.

Don Carlos Taco Shop

Screen Shot 2017-05-05 at 2.30.26 PMFor numerous decades Don Carlos Taco Shop has offered fine catering services to the greater San Diego community. Whether your group consists of 10 people or 200 individuals, Don Carlos has the capacity to prepare a delightful spread that will be sure to satisfy all sorts of tastes and cravings.

Verdes el Ranchero 

Screen Shot 2017-05-05 at 2.31.51 PM

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.
