Old Town San Diego is considered the "birthplace" of California and the site of the first permanent Spanish settlement in California. Prior to this, The Kumeyaay lived in this region for 10,000 years.
This area of San Diego holds centuries of history and is the perfect place to see historic buildings, take a tour, and eat some amazing food. Here are a few of my favorite restaurants.
Voted one of the best Mexican restaurants for over 20 years, this is a great spot anytime of day for Mexican dishes. Walk ins are welcome but reservations are encouraged.
Tortillas are made right at the front of the restaurants for street traffic to see. Stop in for breakfast or an early dinner to beat the rush.
Across the street from Café Coyote, enjoy a casual spot with tons of tequila options. This spot has tons of tacos options and memorable margaritas.
Enjoy the lights and music at this lively spot. Plus, if you are lucky, you might spot Rita, the restaurant cat.
Casa de Reyes is surrounded by shops and a stage for live music. The festive and colorful restaurant is a great spot for drinks or a meal.
Try a variety of Mexican favorites with their combo plates.
