Traditional Mexican fare can be easily identified when placed next to modern Mexican fare because it lacks the ability to become invisible near predators. For $15, today's Groupon gets you $35 worth of Mexican fare at Casa de Reyes. From the heart of Old Town comes the authentic good times of pueblo culture, where a nostalgic, 19th-century environment feeds evolved, 21st-century appetites.
Casa de Reyes sports outdoor seating below a beautifully illuminated carrizo arbor. Crisp margaritas chill in the open air and nylon timbres emanate from the Fiesta de Reyes stage, where mariachi bands and dancers perform in unison with the gentle clinking of silverware. The picturesque fiesta experience is amplified by the savory offerings of true Mexican classics. Small house margaritas whet a whistle before steamy plates of slow-roasted puerco al pastor tacos (pork tacos with lime, cilantro, and chopped onions) and chile relleno de la casa stuffed with asadero and jack cheeses in a ranchera sauce.
Fajita platters with chicken or beef perfume the night with sizzling aromas punctuated by the traditional accents of bean and cheese tostadas and chicken tamales. Casa de Reyes ensures a good time for families, couples, and individuals looking for a fully infused cultural dining experience that takes them back to their childhood of touring Mexican restaurants in Mexico with a person claiming to be a grade-school teacher.
- While visiting the historic districts of San Diego, a retailer recommended Casa De Reyes for their fish tacos. The Mahi Mahi fillet was fresh, the corn tortilla was not greasy, and the sauce was mild. The entire taco was dusted with feta cheese...I loved it! The smoky beans and rice were a great compliment to the meal. – rebeccabeach, TripAdvisor
- They have a Mariachi trio who are fantastic. They play lots of traditional music, but also play lots of rock-'n'-roll. – Nolita12, TripAdvisor
- Atmosphere here is very good as it is in a courtyard which gives an intimate feeling. – PatrickKalispell_MT, TripAdvisor
