Celebrate Mother's Day with Trophy Tacos and Perfect Margaritas!
Sunday, May 13, 2018
The tacos were absolutely incredible, especially the taco of the month which was a bell pepper stuffed in crispy cheese. The drinks were also great, not super strong but not sweet, and the selection is fabulous. The lobster taco was not the best today, and it was a little pricy but it was so worth it!
Taco Tuesday! $2.50 for a taco, with additional charges for their premium items. One of my favorite taco Tuesday places to go to in La Jolla. Don’t get me wrong I love other places too, but for more gourmet tacos, Puesto is the where it’s at!
Puerto makes the most delicious tacos I have ever tasted. Great value, too
Great filet minion tacos, guacamole is incredible, and fun atmosphere. Service was pretty good, and location is great.
Great place for a birthday dinner!
Always a great spot.
I went with my boyfriend right when they opened on Sunday so it was nice and quiet. Waiter was helpful with recommendations and easy to talk to. Tacos were fresh and flavourful~ definitely enjoyed our time there!
What a gem! The food is fresh, innovative and full of flavor. The menu is set up to be modular, so one can mix and match. When the server heard we had a vegan in our party, he brought out a vegan menu. The restaurant has a large window to the kitchen and it was great to watch our food being prepared. Loved the zucchini tacos and the lime and nopales sorbet (one of the best flavor combination to enter my mouth, ever!)
Thanks to the team for a great experience.
My husband and I hosted his brother and partner (vacationing from Michigan) at Puesto on Saturday evening around 6 pm and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The host was friendly and sat us immediately at a high top near the window (prior to our reservation time!). Additionally, the spicy margarita was delicious, the vegetarian tacos blew my mind (that cheese!), and, most notably, our server, Ruby, provided outstanding service. I work in the industry and I was very impressed with Ruby's hospitality-- she was friendly and welcoming, made great drink suggestions, and paid attention to us without hovering. The meal was a bit pricey, so we won't be going to Puesto frequently, but for a special occasion we'll definitely be back!
Our family was visiting La Jolla on spring break and decided to checkout the much talked about Tacos at Puesto. Love the laid back vibe of the place , but fell in love with the Tacos!! Will definitely come back next time we visit !!
Despite reservation we had to wait for our table for 30 min
Great food. Taco combos were fantastic. Service was a little slow - it seemed like our server had too many tables and couldn't keep up.
We were waiting for our table when we saw a table of diners asked to be moved because they were cold. The hostess moved them to a table that I am assuming was going to be ours. She then sat us at the cold table. The door was not shutting automatically and remained open often. The food was good but honestly it was a bad experience because we were freezing.
Excellent service and mouth watering food. Highly recommend Puesto La Jolla.
Great meal! Delicious tacos and the BEST salsa ever!
Love the flavor of the salsa and the classic guacamole. The pineapple agua fresca was fantastic! Be very careful if you have a dairy allergy because they seem to constantly mess that up for me.
We found this place on Yelp and quickly made a reservation—we were greeted in a very friendly manner and seated quickly. The food was amazing...and a lot for the money. Very fresh tasting blue corn tacos with a great array of unusual fillings. Delicious margaritas. Way too full for dessert.😉. However the drawback is that it is VERY loud! Otherwise we loved our experience.
Amazing!!! So fun. Went with my family for lunch. The service was great, the margaritas were on point and the food was fabulous!
The salsa and chips were delicious. My frozen horchata was great. However, the ceasar salad was so spicy I couldn’t eat it, my entree was cold and my husband’s entree lacked flavor. It seems overpriced for what we got and the quality was not that good. On the plus side our server was delightful!
I recommend it whenever someone's in or near La Jolla. If a friend says "I love guac," I take them to Puesto for their pomegranate seed rendition. The staff is fast and friendly. And the tacos... get 3+, including one you've never tried. The mushroom one really wowed me.
Great evening and great service. Our table availability was only about 10min late but we received many apologies. Really fresh and varied flavours in the tacos and best margharitas weve had in san Diego
Mushroom tacos are AMMMMMMAZING! In a city void of exceptional food this is a goldmine for foodies!
We had the most fantastico experience at Puesto! Service was great. Food was even better! They helped us celebrate our friends engagement - truly special!! Their attention to detail was on point.
Cold. Shut the door! Weird food. Not classic Mexican .
Great service and very tasty spin on the taco
Ask for the table next to the kitchen. Fascinating to watch the food being prepared. Guacamole is the best, and try the spicy jalapeño margarita.
Lunch was delightful. Don’t miss the butterscotch budino.
We’ve been to this location before and came back for the food and service. I figured that this time, given it was the weekend, I’d make sure to have reservations. Even with reservations, it was a 15 min wait to be seated. Better than the 45-60 minutes they were quoting to walk up customers, but unexpected.
Unfortunately, this experience was night and day different from our previous one. I’ll definitely avoid this location during the busy times. Food and service was less than satisfactory.
Server ignored us, empty drinks and $10 guacamole without chips. She seemed more interested in another table.
Ordered the tacos. Filet mignon tacos were very chewy, not a good cut. Chicken tacos were good, but not $5 a piece good. Server wasn’t available, so unable to comment.
May not have been a good night for Puesto. Saw the manager get chewed out by another table nearby. We may opt for Barrio Logan next time. Better food and value.
Amazing food and ambiance
Was an incredible dining experience - ambiance was great, food was excellent, drinks are superb! Would definitely go back if I ever am in San Diego. Get the Gobernador and Carne Asada tacos!!
Everything was great, however, it took a really long time to get our food. We had to take it to go, so that we wouldn’t miss a comedy show :(
Fun and incredibly delicious food. So unique and dog friendly! If you are in La Jolla, be sure to eat here!
I love this place!! The hand made tortillas is 🗝. And of course, the mezcal flights!!! Wow
Vibrante; camareros conocedores; representación casi perfecta de la comida mexicana. ¡Solo hazlo!
Food was really good and service was very friendly. No frozen margaritta though. Would highly reccomend.
I really like the Filet Mignon tacos..but it is way overpriced. I have not had a taco like this restaurants but it is just not the kind of place that I will go to just for lunch because..rather an occasion. My family chose different food items from the menu and they where also sattisfied witht their food...so food is definately 100 percent..my only and biggest complaint is price.
The filet mignonette tacos were fantastic. Started out with the guacamole and it was also very good. They make their tortillas as you watch and then wrap your meat in the cheese sleeves. Service was great and food was a ten.
Good food and good value.
Great! Best tacos ever! Love the filet mignon tacos - they are to die for! The corn dish is also excellent. Margaritas are delish. We love both locations - the one in La Jolla and the one in San Diego. Favorite place for great Mexican food! The wait staff is always very friendly and attentive too!!
The service was great everywhere from the host to the bartender to our servers but the food was disappointing compared to the downtown location. This was my first time dining in La Jolla and I expected the same food quality as the downtown location however this definitely wasn’t the case.
Puesto is super colorful and fun, and the tacos are delicious!! They also have some of my favorite guacamole in San Diego.
