Great service (Gustavo is the man!) and food & drink. Fun environment, especially if you like surfing memorabilia. They even made us Chile Rellenos via advanced request (my husband's go-to Mexican entree). We go there often and always leave happy.

This place is a favorite among locals and those who stumble on it by accident. We were visiting friends from Punta Chame and they have eaten there many times. Sometimes when people praise a place to much, it does not live up to the recommendation....More

Being a native of Southern California, authentic Mexican food is familiar. In the Coronado beach area, Cholo's stands alone. Burritos are generous and the Burrito Las Lajas is a favorite. I usually take half home for the next day's lunch. I have to admit, I...More

I've eaten at Cholo's Comidas Mexicana many times over the past 3 years and had a great meal every time. The menu has all the traditional Mexican dishes plus several Mexican plates with local seafood. The service is very efficient and attentive.
