And when you get hungry...
Enjoy a fish taco at Juanita's Taco Shop, the busiest - and many say the best - Mexican takeout in North San Diego, just 2 blocks away. The lines sometime look long, because it's so popular, but they move fast, and it's the classic Mexican beach restaurant experience. A recent magazine article said about Juanita's: "This is great Mexican food - Why doesn't it cost more?" Because it doesn't have to. Get in line - if you spend over $3.00 you better be very hungry. "I think there is a tourist in line -- right there behind the banker - in front of the surfer..." Corner of Marcheta and Old Hwy 101, Leucadia (Encinitas), CA 92024 (760)753-9625
