Nothing wrong with this place unfortunately though nothing too right. With such a vast selection of Mexican food in San Diego combined with Tijuana, they're just really isn't much here to crave. I had 4 tacos, shrimp , tongue, birria and carne asada. If you do go here order three or four tacos because they're a bit small which is... More

My husband loved, loved, loved the carne asada tacos, grilled outside, with fresh tortillas. I don't eat meat, but loved, the fish plate. Unassuming, inexpensive, and busy with young, hip diners. ,

My favourite Mexican place in the area - they do wonderful fish tacos, and everything else I tried was really good too. Open 24 hours, friendly service, feels very authentic. Cheap too!

Great spot for light night tacos. Delicious pollo asado, carnitas, and pastor taquitos and gorditas. Self-serve barbeque beans and grilled onions. Very nice people running the place. Highly recommended if you're in Barrio Logan / Sherman heights and craving a great late-night Mexican food experience.

We were so hungry at that moment, and found this restaurant. The food here is not expensive, and it was so great. I think it's not because we're too starving, its really good and everything is so big. My friend is a man even can't finish it.

My family and I visited San Diego and basically ate at much Mexican food as we could, including some of the highest rated, such as Lucha Libre. We found La Fachada to have the best tacos at the best price in the city. It is located a few blocks from where we stayed, and we decided to dine there after... More

A definite favorite, a once or twice a week, alone, with friends and even for business. It's funky and I prefer to go when I can eat outside (nice weather). It's like going to a GREAT taco stand in Mexico. Lots of choices and great extras, all fresh and made there (even their tortillas). We even hire them to cater... More

While visiting San Diego for business I was taken to La Fachada with a group of locals. The restaurant is essentially a food truck in a parking lot with covered picnic table seating. The food comes mostly on styrofoam plates. Ordering in Spanish is helpful. Having said that, this place was really great. The food was authentic, inexpensive, and freshly... More
