Scrumptious Mexican Food On This Side Of The Border!

Our Story

Our restaurant is built on the motto, Panza Llena Corazón Contento, which means “Full Belly Happy Heart.” We believe in the positive, constructive relationship between emotions and food, and there’s nothing we love more than brightening diners’ days with fresh flavors. It’s our way of making life in Southeast San Diego that much richer.

We’re a family-run restaurant that’s rooted in vibrant, irresistible Mexican cuisine. As a San Diego staple since 1999, we have more than two decades of experience cooking up a menu that brings diners back year after year. Our commitment to authenticity and sheer deliciousness makes us a sure bet when you’re hungry, no matter what time of day it may be. All of our ingredients are prepped to be fresh every day, and our advanced skill empowers mouthwatering results in almost no time. We’re just that good.

We’re not just the favorite eatery for our community; we’re an award-winning restaurant! Our commitment to fresh, authentic flavor won us KUSI News’s “Best Carne Asada Burrito” award. Additionally, our aguas frescas are unlike any other. Once you try one, you’ll have to try them all.

We love what we do because we get to fill bellies with food — and hearts with happiness. Make us a normal part of your week and experience the joy that amazing flavors can bring. We look forward to blowing you away!
