I've searched the threads, but it's hard for me to discern which are nice restaurants and which are more hole in the walle.
Although I grew up in San Diego, it's been a long time since I've been in town, so I don't know restaurants anymore. I'm looking for a good place where I can go with my whole family for my mom's 65th birthday. The whole family is coming in, and she's craving Mexican, but insists there is nothing good in town and just wants to bring in Don Carlos (which I love, so I wouldn't complain too much).
Anyways, she lives in La Jolla, so I'd love any recommendations for good, non hole in the wall places in San Diego area (i.e. escondido is too far), where ten people, including a 90+ year old grandmother, would enjoy eating.
