Mexican Restaurant

“Probably the best Mexican restaurant in the area. Family owned and popular with locals. Full bar. VERY popular, so expect a wait. Only open for dinner except on weekends. Visit their downtown Fallbrook location for lunch on weekdays. This place can be difficult to spot on busy Mission Road. It will be on your left coming from your Airbnb. Keep an eye out or you'll miss it because it is set back a bit from the road. There is an antique shop/village next door off the same parking lot.”
