    Hey Hip, you are in luck my good friend..... There is an Olive Garden close to the Old Town area.

    What's wrong with the fresh tortillas from Coyote Cafe? Or the Carnitas? Or the 64oz margaritas?

    I just went to Casa de Guadalajara last weekend. LOVED it. Got the chicken mole and it was so good! Or was it the ginormous margarita I had before that for only $7.75? Either way, that's my recommendation!

    Guadalajara isn't bad at all, and is kid friendly.

    Avoid Rockin' Baja Lobster - total tourist trap where the put all the stuff in a bucket and people think it makes it good food.

    Yeah, if you want a nice alternative to Old Town Mex. Cafe try Guadalajara.

    One thing I've noticed at OTMC is that a lot of the "normal" variety is okay. But the last time I went I had the spinach (chicken?) enchildas and they were spot on amazing. Wow.

    If you don't mind going down to Ocean Beach, there's also Ortega's on Newport. If:u go there all of the chef's specialties are awesome. Really.

    OH, and for fast food Mexican (the best you'll ever have), go up the 5 north to West Mission Bay Drive (it's not far, about five miles), and turn left off the freeway. Go a block and a half and just after Wendy's on the left side is SANTANA'S. Holy crap, try their California burrito or their carne asada burrito, or their grilled fish tacos, or....jeez, anything! Cheap and tasty, better than any Mexican fast food I found in LA (barring Tito's) the ten years I lived there.

    I don't have anything to add about the Old Town places, but there are a few others in SD that might be worth checking out. First is Fidels Fidel's Little Mexico - San Diego Entertainment Guide at SignOnSanDiego.com. They have one in Solana Beach (on Stevens) and one in Downtown Carlsbad. Personally, I think the one in Solana Beach is way better. Their carnitas are fantastic! Plus it is built on multiple levels (it used to be Fidels house) so it can be fun to wonder through. Also good is El Callejon in Encinitas Restaurant - Home Page. Small place, but good food, good drinks and good time. Simple food, its not drowned in toppings and sauces. They have a chorizo & cheese dip that is amazing. Lastly, no trip is complete with a visit to Los Cuatro Milpas Las Cuatro Milpas - San Diego Entertainment Guide at SignOnSanDiego.com It is kind of a hole in the wall, and is not a restaurant, but man do they have the best tamales, beef tacos and tortillas! If you want to bring home tortillas, you have to call ahead to order them so they can make them. Trust me, its worth it!

    So this is now a general "What to eat anywhere between San Onofre and Tijuana" thread?

    In that case, I recommend The Venetian in Point Loma for the best pizza, the best steamed clams, and generally really great home-style Italian.
