Here are my top three Mexican Restaurants in Chula Vista

Feliz Cinco De Mayo, my top three Mexican Restaurants in Chula Vista, is here. One of the things I love about living here is we have so many great Mexican food restaurants and taco shops. I decided to create my favorites list for Cinco De Mayo. These are just some of my go-to joints, and I highly recommend you try them if you have not already. If you have a favorite, visit my YouTube channel or Instagram and let me know your top three. If I have not already tried them, I will be sure to add it to my list for next time.

#1 El Patio Restaurant: This place has been in Chula Vista since 1954 and is my go-to spot when family or friends visit. The food and service are amazing. It does get a little busy on the weekends, and seating is limited, so please be patient. Their breakfast is also really good.

#2 Garcia’s Mexican Food: I recently discovered this place and even did a few videos about it. It’s one of those local-only spots on Main St., and wow, the food is delicious. It is locally owned and you will even see the family in there working and serving you some fantastic Mexican food.

#3 Don Pedro’s Tacos: When ever I get back from a trip Don Pedro’s is my first stop for some yummy rolled tacos or even the carne asada plate. I live two blocks from it so it’s my number one spot when I want some solid Mexican food.

So those are my top three spots. Let me know what you think, and as always, be sure to follow me on YouTube.


I have lived in this great community for over 30 years. In that time I have seen so many changes both good and bad. My goal is to promote this city and all of the good that goes on here. There are so many local events, small businesses and community groups making this city even better. You can always find me at the events taking photos. This site is a passion project of mine and I want to use this platform to get the community engaged. Get out and enjoy Chula Vista and make sure to follow me on all the socials for more!
