east county San Diego?
You gotta be kidding me!!! We east county folk know how to eat!!
For Mexican that is better than any upscale, expensive & usually generic restaurant check out La Palapa in Lakeside (Happen to have their matches in my pocket with the info: 12169 Woodside Ave. Lakeside CA 90240) Their house margaritas don't need to be stepped up or doubled. Order one on the rocks for fun. If you want to get stupid, (as I do) have a second one! They're 5 bucks apiece & the best this side of the border. The most incredible chile rellenos this side of Baja. Never a bad meal and such a quaint place located in a strip mall spitting distance from Jack in the Box! You gotta check it out!!!
