Best San Diego Mexican Food?

Can I get some feedback on this? Things I missed?

So my sister, nephew and parents are coming down for a visit from Montana and I shared a list of Mexican food places I highly suggest with them. I thought I'd toss it out here as well, for public consumption. Just my opinions, not trying to start a war.

When the question is, "We're coming to San Diego for a few days. What Mexican food should we get?", my answer is the list below.

Besides those listed below, there are other places very much worth going: Las Cuatro Milpas, Tacos El Gordo, Mariscos El Prieto, Mariscos Isaac, Tacos El Paisa, La Fachada, Tacos El Panson, Maria's Taco Shop, El Pescador, TJ Oyster Bar, Talavera Azul, Frida Mexican Cuisine, Mama Testa.

And there are places you can safely avoid: Old Town Mexican Cafe, El Zarape, El Indio, El Agave, Candelas.

The List -

El Comal - Nice sit-dwon place. Broad menu and good bar.

Ranas Mexico City Cuisine - Sit-down place. Large menu. Great sauces.

Tacos Alex - Eat here or I will dope smack you.

Mariscos German Beyer - The one on Imperial. Or is the one below better?

Aqui es Texcoco - Lamb and barbacoa.

Cocteleria La Playita - Ceviche, fried fish tacos, seafood cocktails.

Cantina Mayahuel - Margaritas, moles, street tacos.

Rudy's Taco Shop - Outstanding street tacos

Los Arcos or Hector's Mariscos - Sit-down Mexican seafood.

Super Cocina - Actually super.
