Puesto at the Headquarters
Book your next event with us
Vibrant atmosphere, friendly service, and in a taco heaven like San Diego, quite possibly the best tacos in town. Creative flavors, fresh ingredients always. A little pricey for tacos but WELL WORTH IT. Just go!
Food was cold!!! When we put in our order - it took them 1 hour to get the food out to us! When we got the food it wasn’t even that great - the cheese on the tacos was hard ... wish I would have enjoyed that cheese when it was fresh and warm!
Made anniversary special with a nice dessert surprise at the end. Very good service. One plate of tacos was cold so food star reduced.
Everything we had was delicious!
Great service & ambiance. It was a little noisy but it was a Friday night so expected.
Excellent service, food, and atmosphere. Will return as always!
Restaurant week is the best deal! The guacamole is normally $10 or $11 by itself and with the 3 course for $15 you get a very decent portion size. Delicious!
Service was exceptional! I had the veggie taco and mushroom taco it was delicious i wish i couldve eaten more. My daughter said the adobada shrimp was bomb!
They were very accommodating to our group, and I'm glad to have booked through OpenTable - it was crowded when we showed up, and it was nice to just walk in and be seated!
Had a Business dinner for a large party
Everybody loved it
The food was wonderful. The lobster and the filet minion tacos were the best. The server was extremely helpful in ordering since we had our kids with us. Kids loved it. They had oat milk horchata in a slushy drink that they loved. To end our meal, we had the tres leche postré which was delicious. Highly recommend trying it out.
Awesome loved the food!! Highly recommend ... I want one in the SF Bay Area
Great experience as always! Loved the restaurant week menu and would be nice to have them as regular options on the menu.
Puesto is always a go to choice, and the headquarters location is so great for large parties. Service was great!
My fist time at this location. I always love the food.
We were in San Diego to visit our daughter and son-in-law. They both like Puesto’s, so we always go when we are in SD. I had a carnitas taco, which was good, but salty. My brother had the chicken soup, (not tortilla), he said it was ok. My husband had the Baja fish tacos, he said it was the best think he has ever had at Puesto’s. Service was really good, I wish I would have got her name. My only complaint the heaters were not working where we were sitting, and it was cold. My brother has a spinal cord injury, and they did not have the table set up for his wheelchair. I did make a point of requesting this when I made the reservation. The cold was uncomfortable for all of us, but especially for my brother, since his body reacts differently to temperatures. My recommendation in the future would be to look at the big picture, when it comes to seating a table. Otherwise, dinner was good and cardiac margaritas were delish.
We were seated by front door and it was freezing.
I love Mexican food - this was a bit different but very very good - if i lived in San Diego, i would go back.
Great waiter, fast service, good food!
The venue is cold, and sitting on metal chairs didn't help. Basically ruined what would have otherwise been excellent because the food was amazing.
Food is Some what ok we tried Different Taco some are good the other are we taste but just one bite, we Reserve but never ask if we can have table inside, they just seat us outside, By the time food get there is not that hot, it’s cold outside.
Lisa is the best!!!!! Tacos were outstanding. She definitely made our night!
We had a table of 5 and shared a salad, guac and three 3 taco combo plates. Their special of the month taco was FANTASTIC - so tasty. They all had such unique flavors. We will be back!
Low risk bet on latam cuisine
Our server was very nice and attentive and the food was great as usual.
I had heard good things about Puesto so I recommended it when I had family visiting who were going on a cruise. I was extremely disappointed with the food. Very ordinary dry tacos. Over-priced. I wish I had selected somewhere else. It took a looong time to get our food, as well. Server was very attentive in refilling water glasses.
The tacos were excellent. Definitely give them a try!
We had a big group of 12 and it was easy to book and pay. Good food and drinks. Loud but fun.
Tacos were awesome! Loved the filet mignon! Our server was absolutely fantastic!
Sadly our server was not in a good mood today. She was very short with us and less than helpful. She almost seemed bothered by our party of 5. The director of operations
Great experience all around!
Best steak taco I’ve had and very fresh guacamole.
2 adults + 2 kids on vacation. Easy walking distance from USS Midway. Awesome margaritas, and all our specialty tacos + vegetarian bowl were spot on. Very accommodating to special requests to leave spicy toppings off or on the side for our age 9 and 12 kids.
Besides the over priced dishes we did not understand why every taco has a thick melted layer of cheese around the protein? No flavor or didn’t add anything to the dish.. otherwise food was fine.
I don’t know how this place has such wonderful ratings...hoping we just caught them at a bad time since it was around NYE and busy.
Ambiance - we were sat in a corner on the patio, with 1 candle for 6 people. It was so dark we all needed flashlights and phones tor was the menu or see our food. I find for $50/person and drinks - I’d like to see the food I’m trying to enjoy. Basically sat away from everything pictured online.
Food - bland, very bland, dry. Our tacos were almost stale and clearly had been sitting out. A few appetizers were overly salted. It’s a very poor imitation of Baja Mexican. Take me back to Texas for real food. Salsa - also bland, tasteless. And they gave us 2 salsa’s for 6 people.
Drinks - watered down, really no taste of lime or grapefruit. We got a Paloma and a margarita - I am also closely associated with one of the best tequila bartenders and mixologists nationwide.... these were just terrible. No taste difference between a margarita or a Paloma which is sad. Imagine water with a sprinkle of tequila, and a bunch of ice cubes.
Service - the waitstaff and waitress was nice, and they were quick to get our orders and our tab.
Otherwise, I personally feel this place is overrated, underwhelming, low value, low quality. I’d be embarrassed to ever host an event or bring friends and family again.
We were a party of 6 on a Sunday aftermoon. Great food, average prices, AMAZING service.
Surprisingly good food in the "touristy" part of San Diego! The taco options are wonderful, the margaritas are outstanding and the service is excellent.
The filet tacos were excellent, there were three of us at the table that had the filet tacos and we all felt the were 5 star
Solid food, good service, large bar and good selection
Great energy and beautiful restaurant
