        Perhaps El Chiapaneco deserves inclusion on your list. Not only for the fantastic tamales platano but for the seriously good Birria served on Sat/Sun.

        Also, next door to Chiapaneco in the parking lot is a Guerrero style barbecued chicken stand that's open on the w'ends. Loads of chicken pieces bathed in a Guerreran chile-based BBQ sauce, with a huge roasted onion, rice, frijoles de la olla, tortillas and salsas. It's unique in San Diego and a great to-go treat for the family or gathering of friends. They also slow roast pork spare ribs which I haven't tasted yet but which look like a piece of heaven.

        I heartily suggest a visit for the Birria and for the chicken next door.

          Brilliant. I"ve bookmarked this, but like the idea of printing out for my car. you're the man. (or are you, the woman?)

            Mama Testa's and La Fachada are others that def should be included on the list!

              Nice new feature, as you know we pretty much eat at the same places I would probably add La Fachada

                You're a lifesaver! You got #1 in the right spot. I've been to all but three and I totally agree with you. I really would add Mama Testa's, it's so unique. Now we want a print out of your other (non Mexican) favorites, include those new places in Mira Mesa. I hope I get to see you before you finish college. ;-))

                  No Tacos El Paisa or Mariscos German on your list?

                    Thanks Alex! This is great! I printed your list and will keep it in the car with me. I've been in North County before and thinking "Now where is it that Alex recommended up here???" Now I'll know! :)
