El Azteca Taco Shop
El Azteca in La Mesa is a no-frills strip mall joint serving up no-nonsense burritos, tacos, and enchiladas, with its enormous California burrito being the standout.
This no-frills, strip mall spot started out as a sit-down joint in Pacific Beach in 1980 before it moved to its current location to embrace its inner hole-in-the-wall. It boasts the usual suspects: burritos, tacos, and enchiladas, with its enormous California burrito being the standout. Known for its sheer size, which is roughly equivalent to a small baby, this delicious beast comes with chopped up carne asada, french fries, guac, pico, and cheese, and a red and green salsa for those of you (aka all of you) who like it hot.
