Old Town Mexican Cafe

This is our third trip to the San Diego area for the ESRI conference. We are staying in the Old Town area for the first time and had a chance to try the Old Town Mexican Cafe. This restaurant served the worse Mexican food i've ever had. We ordered 1/2 chicken mole (which was this roasted chicken that was practically dry) with this weird brown sauce slathered over it - ewwwww....with a iceberg lettuce side salad with what was supposed to be blue cheese dressing and a disgusting shrimp taco with a chewy corn torilla shell. They lure you in with what is supposed to be fresh tortillas but really are tortillas made in advanced, then heated up again. They were gooey and tasteless. I've had much better Mexican on the East Coast. I'm amazed that there is such a long line up outside.

Does anyone have any good restaurants suggestions in the area?
