    Don't get me wrong, the food is great. But it is always packed so the service isn't great anymore. On the weekends, the lines are out the door!

    Worst dining experience
    smanning (2 reviews)

    Worst dining experience I've had in years. Lousy service - we were completely ignored so much that we had to go to the bar for drinks. The drinks themselves were orrible - we're not even sure they added alcohol to the margaritas. The food was poor quality - 3 of the 4 of us barely touched our food. It was overly greasy and all tasted the same - there wasn't a difference between one dish and the next. It was way too hot inside - I had to step outside to keep from fainting. Then 10 minutes into our meal, a band started playing so loudly that we couldn't speak to one another. I was so embarassed that we brought our out of town guests here. I will never go again. In fact, I saw several parties leave before being served. The homemade tortillas are the only thing worth ordering.

    Going to Old Town Mexican Cafe while in San Diego is a must. Their homemade tortillas are so good. I love the atmosphere and the food is really good. The prices are very reasonable.

    Worth it just for the tortillas
    SanDiegoGirl (13 reviews)
    8/03/2008

    Although the rest of their menu is good, (nothing special,) their hand-made tortillas are THE BEST. As good as my grandmother's. Ambiance is good, the mariachis will come to individual tables and sing songs, which can be very romantic on a date. (But on a date I would go during an off-peak time of the day so you will have better service and more attention. I recommend between 1:30 pm and 4 pm.) Service is so-so, and during lunch, dinner, weekends, and high-tourist times the wait is L-O-N-G, but I recommend the wait just to try the tortillas- you can't get much more authentic Mexican than that.

    The food here was pretty good. Not especially memorable but tasty. The service was friendly but the wait was quite long to get in.

    I only seem to go to Old Town when I have house guests. The margaritas are huge and the patio area is lovely.

    If you want fresh, steaming, authentic tortillas, go to Old Town Mex. The service is friendly and the food is amazing.

    Old Town is a landmark in San Diego. For a long time one company owned the entire thing, but after the sale of it these restaurants popped up and sold great food that anyone, even the most hard core Mexican food lovers, will be satisfied.

    After working in Old town for over 2 years all I have heard was great things about this place. I was shocked to find out the food was very average, cold when it was served.
