The Best Mexican Dining in Old Town San Diego
From the heart of Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, El Fandango transports visitors back to the late 1840s to a time when the early days of modern San Diego co-existed with the old San Diego of the missionaries. Not your typical Mexican fare, El Fandango’s menu reflects the changing pattern of food preparation in California during this time period when the game and seafood dishes from the Native Americans mixed with the cultural inspiration of the Californios of the Spanish period.
The turn-of-the-century feel is also captured in our adobe plaster building featuring handmade terracotta floor tiles, traditional wall murals and a large patio with shade armadas that takes advantage of the beautiful San Diego weather. With plenty of indoor seating and outdoor dining on our covered patio, we offer authentic Mexican food paired with live entertainment and drink specials daily.
Visit us to take your senses on journey back in time to this unique period when culture and flavors collided to create what El Fandango serves up every day. When visiting Old Town San Diego, El Fandango is a must for some of the best Mexican food in Old Town San Diego.
