I know it's touristy, but what the heck, we'll be tourists, so we are definitely going to spend a few hours at Old Town. So of the restaurants available there, which would you recommend for a meal? I've read over and over on these boards that the Mexican food avialable in San Diego isn't "good" or "authentic," but since we are coming to CA from Philadelphia, it has to be better than what I can get at home! Recommendations for delicious Margaritas are also welcome!
One more out-of-towner question: I've also read on these boards about popular restaurants having lines or long waits for a table. We really hate to wait. At home, we know when the "off-times" are and places for good food where we won't wait so long. Can you share any secrets with me for avoiding a wait? We are visiting during the last week of September, partly because we hope that it is a good time to avoid crowds. Do I still have to expect to wait at popular restaurants during on weekdays at the end of September?
