Hands down best Guacamole EVERY. It's worth coming to La Puerta just to get their chips and Guacamole. Plus I just found out they have $1 mimosas every Sunday so I'll be making that my Sunday routine now.
La Puerta embodies the spirit of San Diego! I am a S.D. native so it would be hard to slip mediocre Mexican food and tequila by me. Thank goodness they did not try!
The food was amazing I can especially recommend the "Surf & Turf" burrito which is just like it sounds, and the guacamole is amongst the best I have had including my time across the border. They also have a great selection of tequilas from Plata (Silver), Resposado (aged), and Anejo (aged-longer LOL) which can fit into anyone's price-range. They have also gone out of their way to train the staff in the "art of the blue agave" so you can trust their tequila recommendations (Do me a favor though and at least try something decent like the Asombroso Rosa or the Gran Centenario Anejo. Tequila is a hobby of mine and I will not steer you wrong. Speaking of Tequila I was fortunate to have tried the Herradurs Sellecion Suprema as well which is the tequila equivalent of Dom Perignon or Krug. $40 bucks a shot is actually not a bad deal since a bottle is $349)
The service was prompt, & friendly. The vibe is classic, the staff uniforms consist of Rock & Roll t-shirts and blue jeans just as it should, Ramones and the Clash were my favorites of the night.
All in all I would highly recommend this party-spot for it's great eats and impressive Tequila selection. The owners pulled off a great make-over and turned an ugly duckling into a comfortable night-spot that will not break the bank. Unless you try that Herradura I mentioned. LOL
So I stopped in with some friends last night for a small bite. They had the perfect solution. A Tecate and a taco for $3. Can you beat that? I believe that special is only on Tuesdays though. They are also have a Tecate and 2 TJ Style hot dogs (bacon wrapped, grilled onions, etc.) for $7. So the taco...very good! The meat was very tender and flavorful and the hot sauces are also really good. They also have Tapatio and others upon request. The guacamole chips are delicious as well. The decor is very cool and they have a rock type theme going on with the music.
