I did a search, adn found some older threads but am looking for current ideas.
We will be staying in carlsbad for a few nights. We will have a car, but unless we're going to be blown away by the food after a 30-40 min drive, we'd prefer something in the immediate area- as far as ambiance, we prefer holes in the wall to neighborhood joints - nothing dressy. a nice view is a bonus, but not necessary.
We are specifically looking for mexican and fresh seafood. Good tortillas and salsas are appreciated.
