A word from El Callejon - Vista
We are a Mexican restaurant like you never seen before in the US.

We pride ourselves to prepare our dishes the old fashion Mexican way. We use truly Mexican traditional dishes and we do not offer any of the typical southwest options. Our sauces are delicious. We offer chipotle, poblano, mole. cilantro and many other options with either fish, shrimp, chicken and meat.

Our bar is also special. We have one of the largest collections of tequila. Over 1000 bottles and counting. We are like a tequila museum Our margaritas are also made the way they are supposed to be made. Freshly squeezed lime juice, triple sec and tequila. You are going to love them.

Hope to see you soon...

    Nothing exciting about this restaurant. servers were nice an friendly. The food however was very mediocre. How hard is it too prepare good Mexican food? i guess they still have to figure that out!

    The restaurant was great. From the moment we stepped in, the hostess was very people oriented and friendly, didnt wait long for food, or appetizers....the music was awesome. They had mariachi which fit the theme of the restaurant....i was blown away.

    Not impressive; table arrangement very tight - we had to bother neighboring table to get in the chair. Waiter forgets what we order. Food was OK, nothing special.

    Food was good, service was great. Not to keen on the brightly painted walls. Plenty of close parking.

    Our first time eating here and we walked in to hear live 70's music for Cinco de Mayo in an "Authentic Mexican" restaurant - What? Perhaps it was this strange contrast that made staff miss their focus on the job of customer service. Water, salsa, chips had to be asked for on multiple occasions and with multiple staff - I was surprised the food even arrived. That was the redeeming quality of this place - the food was very good. My wife missed not seeing on the menu her favorite dishes of Albondigas soup and Camerones de Diabla, but she still loved the dish she chose. Compare the prices to other great Mexican restaurants in the area: almost double the normal rate. Worth the price? Not for us.

    A unique Mexican restaurant. Excellent food, drinks, chips & salsa But great seafood. Its rare to.find a Mexican restaurant which makes seafood other than over fried fish tacos. I had a great salad with tasty, tender salmon with a good dressing not too heavy! A must try with great attentive service.
