The Nachos are the best I've
The Nachos are the best I've ever had...anywhere. Unbelievable. A huge helping and every part covered.
I honestly don;t think I'll order then anywhere else as noting can match them.

When you enter the Estancia
When you enter the Estancia grounds, it feels like you're far, far away - not just down the road from home. Great quickie getaway and best margaritas in LJ.

Great afternoon getaway
The food was great and we love the patio. We made some special requests on our meal and they were very accommodating.

The nachos stole the show! However our main meals were delicious too. I especially loved the arugula salad. Will recommend this little gem.

We have visited La Jolla for many years, and we come from a "foodie" town. This is the first time we have dined at Mustangs & Burros and definitely will be returning. The food was delicious. I normally do not like carne asada tacos, but they ones served here are outstanding. Really loved everything about this restaurant. Terrific!

Special occasion by the fireplace
Dinner at Mustangs & Burros - had a very nice table right by the fireplace indoors. The setting reminded us of a restaurant we used to go to in the North Valley near Albuquerque/Corrales, NM, which was in a 100-year old adobe ranch house, where we got to sit by the fire. It was a quiet night at Mustangs & Burros, our servers were excellent with timing and suggestions. The food was really nice and they didn't mind when we chose to "split" dinner. (We left an appropriate tip.) The standout was a cocktail made with mango + jalapeno + lemon juice and spiked with vodka and beer. It was delicious, tangy, spicy and fun! After dinner, lingered on the quiet patio near the fire. Overall a very nice evening out.

The restaurant is set in a very calming enviornment, amongst the beatufil lansscape and architecture of the Estancia resort.

We were there on a beautiful Saturday and found it hard to believe there weren't more people there. Food was good. Lunch menu is limited but certainly enough options. Waiter was outstanding.

Quick Dinner Getaway
We actually stayed at the hotel for a few days and enjoyed the dinners here. If you're able to sit outside, please do so and enjoy the surroundings. It's quite a relaxing experience to dine with other fine guests and enjoy excellent food. I recommend the mango hop drink. It has a great after taste!

We dined at Mustangs and Burros while we were staying at Estancia. The restaurant has a wonderfully authentic southwest feel. The fire pit and outdoor patio are a wonderful place to enjoy a romantic dinner for two or a get together with friends.
The food is absolutely delicious! We loved the nachos for an appetizer and the carne asada tacos. Their bread pudding for desert is to die for. Their Estancia branded wines are from the Trinitas winery and both the Chardonnay and Cabernet were excellent.
We will most definitely be back!

A Serene, Romantic Retreat
Mustangs and Burros was a pleasant surprise. Great atmosphere, excellent service, very inventive takes on some classic dishes (sea bass fish tacos were superb). Ample, very tasty servings at reasonable prices. And did I say romantic? a lovely get away to a tropical paradise in the midst of the city. Everyone from the valet on up had wonderful, welcoming attitudes. We were 'just checking it out' but we fell in love and will definitely return. Our waitress, Vanessa was outstanding

Nice stop before a show
Met friends for happy hour before heading to a show at the La Jolla Playhouse. 4 apps off the HH menu & we all were full. HH hour goes until 6. On a chilly evening, a spot by the indoor or outdoor fireplace is cozy.

Delicious respast and respite
My daughter and I had just finished with a marvelous time at the spa and were so relaxed, so we opted to dine outside, which was much quieter than inside, which had several large parties. The ambience was wonderful: a lovely blazing fire, comfortable seating, and a view of the evening sky and even a star or two. We shared the butternut soup and crabcake starters, which were beautifully presented and delicious. The filet mignon entree was first-rate -- fork tender yet flavorful -- accompanied by complimentary vegetables. The service was attentive. We will certainly dine there again.

I used to go to this spot years ago when it was just a bar with an acoustic guitar player. I loved it then and I REALLY love it now that I can make dinner reservations and know that I will have a great time in beautiful surroundings. LOVE the Estancia
