Reviews for Tony's Jacal

Best Mexican restaurant on the planet. Chile rellenos are the very best there are. Every meal is made to order - all fresh ingredients. Known throughout San Diego and especially in the Del mar/Solana Beach Area. During Racing (Horse) season, Trainers, Jockeys, Owners and fans all go to Tony's during their stay.

Tony Gonzalez returned from duty with the Army in World War II and opened a Mexican restaurant in Solana Beach featuring the cooking of his wife Catalina, naming it Tony's Jacal. "Jacal" is the Spanish word for a shack or hut. Aside from Mexican food, the Gonzaleces served traditional American fare like chicken dinners, sliced turkey plates, and t-bone steaks, dishes that are still sold here by their descendants 73 years later. As with many cross-over restaurants of this full review

We love the way they prepare classic Mexican food with a local, old school flavor. This spot has been our go to eatery anytime we're even close for nearly 50 years. They're known for a great dinner menu, try them for breakfast too. Check the hours, they're closed for a few hours between breakfast and dinner, but GO!
