Food and restaurants in Chula Vista

Top restaurants

Taco Place
“If you are a fan of Mexican food and anywhere near San Diego, then you have no doubt heard of and probably visited multiple times Tacos el Gordo. This Tijuana transplant makes some of the best tacos I have ever had, and even though the line is practically always massive, I have never been disappointed with a wait for their food.”

Italian Restaurant

Meal Delivery
“They have a dinner and live show performance of belly dancers on Friday and Saturday nights that families with all ages can enjoy and the food is really very good and plentiful. The entertainment is captivating but may not be appropriate for our more conservative guests. Dads seem to like it for the food/entertainment value. Reservations are a good idea.”
