Quick service and great food! Their chips are phenomenal, and their cinnamon chips are one of my new favorite desserts... of all time. It’s a pretty tiny spot and didn’t feel all too clean, but we also got there at the end of the lunch rush hour and they were packed.read more

Sadly, the quality of food has fallen. I asked for the green salsa. There was a charge for this, I though oh, its... about 1/8 of a cup things are tight, I was thinking 50 or 75 cents. Nope they wanted $2.10 , with tax. I declined. We got a fish soft taco, no flavor at all. Beef soft taco, it was greasy. 3 rolled tacos, they were not bad but for $17 plus I think it could of been a lot better.read more

They were so nice, my boyfriend and I spent the day trying different places for california burritos, this place was... different than the others but not in a bad way. The tortilla you could tell was fresh, the meat was so tender and good and the french fries were a nice crispy. Can't wait to go back and try more things.read more

We chose this restaurant for our dinner on the strength of it’s positive reviews and we were not disappointed. The... staff were extremely friendly and attentive and the food was simply excellent. I can highly recommend the pate plate, and the Scottish salmon was absolutely delectable. We were treated to a creme brûlée as treat which finished off our wonderful meal just right! Many thanks to the Smoking Goat for a great experience. We will be back!read more

It's hard to find a decent potato taco in this city, however this San Diego landmark has been doing it for 80 years. Of... course they have the classic beef and chicken, but do yourself a favor and try a potato one, you won't be disappointed. Don't forget to grab a bag of their chips, that seasoning on them is amazingread more

The food was excellent. While always good it was even better than normal. I think this is because with the slow down... the kitchen is slower paced which results in better attention to detail. We ate on the patio that and parking were not as much of a challenge as it is here occasionally.read more
