Carne Asada Tampiquena

To start, I have being eating at Casa de Pico since I was a kid when it was in Old Town. It has always been an authentic Mexican food restaurant with quality ingredients and a great atmosphere! The staff is always friendly and the flour tortillas are to die for, we always get some to go. Birthday parties here are a must, you can thank me later. We will be back for another margarita soon!!!! P.S. The happy hour is legit!

Chicken Fajitas

My absolute favorite dish and my go-to pick when dining here. You cannot go wrong with the hot and sizzling bell peppers and marinated chicken. It's also an awesome experience to witness when your waiter brings in the hot sizzling plate with an oven mitt. If you're overwhelmed by the menu or just unsure what to go, you can always opt for fajitas as you will not be dissapointed!

Tequila Lime Shrimp

This light and buttery shrimp plate is our favorite dish on the menu. It's fresh and served with warm tortillas. It's a nice mix of flavors and works well for lunch or dinner.

Mexican Chopped Salad

Casa de Pico is our favorite place to be. During the early 2020 Covid lockdowns, I added a desktop photo of the outdoor dining area to remind myself of the joy we'd feel when we came back. The ambiance, the knowledgeable and friendly servers, and the delicious meals bring us back. Our favorites are Salmon Fresco and Grilled Fish Tacos.

Fiesta Vegetable Burrito

Ginormous burrito size and I do appreciate that the burrito can be made vegan! The vegetables are warm and tender inside and the burrito is so easy to eat quickly!

Carne Asada Burrito

Wow, what can I say? The carne asada was cooked perfectly, so tender and flavorful. The portion was big, the cheese sauce added a spectacular finish to an amazing burrito. We came in with a party of 11 and had wonderful service and a great way to celebrate a birthday.

Pollo Fundido

We found Casa de Pico in 2002 when we relocated to San Diego we have eaten many meals all excellent. Pollo Fundido was always the one meal we seemed to go to the most. Many a lunch time was spent at Old Town with appetizers and margaritas taking in the music and atmosphere. We have moved from San Diego but whenever we visit a trip to Casa de Pico is a must. Happy to say another visit is soon to happen and yes we will get Pollo Fundido, margaritas and the delicious salsa. See you soon
