    Default Old Town San Diego

    Havent been here in a long time and I know its changed a bit. I normally go to Old Town Mexican Cafe but thought Id throw out the idea and see if any of our LGK San Diego contingent can give some ideas on some other places that may be better.

    I will be with the kids so will limit my margarita intake to 1 pitcher between me and the wife. The Rest of the time will be spent wandering the shops/village/Whaley House.

    Anyhow, would Freds be an upgrade over the Cafe? Is Guadalajaras an option?

    Any help much appreciated.

    Fred's Lobster Tacos pwn, but you got Fred's in your neck of the woods in HB, so maybe try something unique instead? Definitely stay away from the Cafe Coyote though.

    A place to avoid is every bit as valuable as a recomendation. On that same note-Ive yet to go to the Freds in HB so it would still be a semi new experience.

    Are you just going to eat in Old Town? There's better food in Gaslamp but the best Mexican food is Casa de Pico in La Mesa. It used to be in Old Town but moved.

    We like Old Town because it gives us a chance to get some margaritas and still have a couple of hours to walk around and enjoy ourselves before making the drive home. Were probably going to do Cabrillo Natl Monument in the AM with Old Town for late lunch before making our way home.

    The wife and I are quite partial to the Cosmopolitan Hotel (formerly known as Casa de Bandini). The food and margaritas are excellent. It's a historical building, right there in Bazaar del Mundo. To get the proper ambiance though, you have to sit outside on the patio by the fountains. In the evenings they sometimes have Mariachis that play for tips. Good times.

    My Mexican wife (and her family) swears by Old Town Mexican Cafe. Doesn't matter to me as I would pass on every other Mexican place for the Cafe's Carnitas plate. Just go where you know to go Hip!

    Viva La Cafe!
