San Diego, California – Old Town Mexican Cafe

Did I really just drive 2.5 hours for Mexican food?

Let me preface this by saying I am serious about my Mexican food! Living in California so close to the Mexican border us Californian’s have a lot to choose from and this makes us picky. We know the difference between authentic and wanna be authentic and we avoid the latter.

Having lived in California for over 30 years, I have a list of favorite Mexican places depending on what I’m looking for (super fancy, hole in the wall, homemade tortillas etc), but Old Town Mexican Cafe is my go to spot whenever I am in San Diego…and heck even when I’m not in San Diego. Yes, I am that person who will drive 2+ hours for Mexican food…why, because I can and because it’s just that good. View Post
