Jose spent countless hours at our home in the crawl space, in the attic (during summer)and at all hours so that we would have updated, safe electricity for our home by our deadline. He and his crew were always professional, on time, and depedable. The work was outstanding!

Went to hire these guys and realized they have no workers compensation insurance!!! I checked out their website and reviews on Kudzu but would never hire them since they are breaking the law and putting homeowners at risk! I would seriously wonder about a company that is willing to do this and think twice before hiring them.

I bought a house that needed a LOT of work, and the electric work was one of the things that needed an immediate attention. I searched for 'the best' electrician in town, and I found All Star from Kudzu. I couldn't be happier that I found them. Jose worked on my house, and his service was nothing but fabulous! It was a long process to get this old house equipped with what I needed; it took over a month to complete the whole thing (although it was more to do with inspection schedules), but Jose has always been prompt, friendly and professional and made me feel better about going through the required process. He even helped me with the pricing, yet he never compromised on any work he performed. I can go on and on to state positive things about Jose and his company, if I can! My heart is set to use All Star as long as I am a home owner in San Diego, and I highly recommend that you call them when you need any electric problems solved. You will not regret it!!

On time, nice and friendly technician, fixed several items including smoking outlet, fan light switch, and outdoor outlet. Also, gave good advice to avoid future problems. I would recommend and call back next time, I need electrical assistance.

Jose arrived to troubleshoot a kitchen wiring problem.He quickly found and corrected the problem. Besides being a very nice friendly person, he was a true professional.The price was very reasonable--I will always use All-Star for any future electrical issues and will recommend them to my friends and neighbors.

All Star Electric just installed a fan in my home and did a great job. They were totally professional from beging to end. Jose was honest and up front what needed to be done and how much it would cost. He explained everything to me. They were fast and courteous. I would recommend them to anyone.

Cezar & Jose came & gave estimates for 3 different electrial items (fan install, GFCI replacement, & a chandelier). I liked that each item was written down, & for the kitch. light, 3 possible approaches were given. I had another company give me a bid which was lower. Cezar matched that bid. He returned my calls promptly, arrived on time, was accurate in estimating the time needed to complete the jobs, was thorough with the electrical wiring, and explained everything clearly. (I was able to tell my husband exactly what work was done.) We had Cezar wire & install a ceiling fan and repair/track down a GFCI plug problem. When we are ready to install the kitchen chandelier (which requires wallboard work) we will definitely have ALL-ATAR Electric return to do the work. Cheryl

Cesar was friendly, knowledgeable & trustworthy. When he gave me an estimate, he even advised me how I could save money on the job. I was very happy with his work and professionalism and thought the pricing was fair and reasonable. I will never need to look for another electrician again. Highly recommend!! UPDATE: Jose handled a second project for me and I was just as happy as with my first experience. It's nice to know you can expect great work and friendly and knowledgable employees, no matter who's available to handle your project.

I needed help replacing an outlet that was a little more complicated than I'm used to. Even though it was a VERY small project, All Star came out right away, explained to me how this particular outlet was wired, replaced it and charged me a very reasonable price. Thank you Jose! I've been looking for a reliable electrician for my rental units for years, and I finally found them!

Our home was built 32 years ago. We have been having electrical problems throughout our home in the past few years and I was thinking we would have to have the entire house re-wired. Most recently a gremlin would short circuit the refrigerator and our ceiling fan in the living room. After suffering many outages at Christmas time we finally called All Star. They came out at our convenience and wrote down the problems. They then went to the problem areas and found power where we knew there hasn't been. Then we pulled out the night light and the gremlins came to life, killing the power to the receptacles. I was so happy it happened when they were here. We immediately scheduled the appointment to have them do the troubleshooting plus adding a new circuit for the microwave and an additional hallway switch. Caesar and Jose are the best. These guys are awesome, professional and very personable. They explained everything they were doing to keep us engaged. Before they left we asked them to map the circuits to all the receptacles and switches. We would highly recommend them to everyone we know.

Thank you for your kind words Bill, it was a pleasure taking care of those issues for you and thank you for the book. We wish and your family the best and good luck with that book let us know when part two comes out. Thnx All Star Electric
All Star Electric ranks right up there as my absolute top Kudzu find! We had really complex wiring problems in the house we just bought with lots of three and four way switches that were wired wrong. Not only did All Star Electric give me a incredibly reasonable flat bid for diagnosing and fixing the problems, Cesar and Jose were absolutely amazing. They started from one end of the house and methodically worked their way to the other end diagnosing the problems one after another. They were energetic, efficient and incredibly personable. My other two bids, also top Kudzu ratings, were very different from this one. The first was an hourly bid and charged more for the first hour for two men than All Star Electric did for a day of troubleshooting. They also told me that I needed to figure out all of the problems before they came out. The second actually tried to start work over my protests that all I wanted was a bid and then told me if I felt guilty I could pay his first hour rate (almost as much as All Star Electric's entire day). When I called All Star Electric after the first guy told me that I needed to figure out the problems ahead of time, I was told by Jose that it would be no problem for them to do it! And, boy did they do it well. How refreshing to have a company that is reasonable, honest, and incredibly professional and efficient. I will be using them for future wiring in this very dark house and recommending them to all my friends. These guys rock!

None of our outlets were working upstairs. Caesar came and diagnosed and repaired the problem in under 10 minutes. Very professional, on time and efficient. Impressive!!

Jose and Ceasar completed a dedicated 20A circuit for a sauna. They both were very professional and courteous and went straight to work. They were very careful with my home and did a great install. They also rerouted a 240V 30A circuit another company had installed a few years back, to make it look much neater and more protected. Very happy with the install and outcome. Will recommend them to everyone without hesitation and will use them again.

Cesar and Jose were awesome! They came out to fix a problem from the builder (builder did not wire part of home appropriately). We called them, and they came out in a little over an hour - the fastest service that we had ever had for a technician. They were prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. We would definitely use them again. Thanks to you both for the exellent service and for getting everything fixed, expecially during the holidays! Heather and Steven in Chula Vista
