Brighten up your day with vibrant flavors from Barrio Star, a Bankers Hill neighborhood restaurant offering handmade street tacos, house-made margaritas, and a healthy rendition of classic Mexican cuisine.

With bright and airy locations in Encinitas, Pacific Beach, and Point Loma, this restaurant is a great spot for a family meal or a date night. A three-step ordering process makes it easy for you to get exactly what you want. Pick a cut of your favorite fish, marinade, and sides, and build-your-own taco, sandwich, salad, or plate. Or try the house favorite Coconut Shrimp coated in their homemade shredded coconut butter, deep fried golden and crispy, served with jasmine rice and sweet chili dipping sauce.

Tacos are the key to anyone's heart. Satisfy your cravings at Quiero Restaurants, offering the quintessential San Diego experience in the heart of Seaport Village and Imperial Beach.
