I loved the food and there was almost too much of it on the plate, hardly could finish it. It's not too expensive and the waiters are friendly and helpful. I loved the bright, colorful interior of this place.

Went with an old timer who really likes this place. We ate outside. Both the service and food were excellent. Our friend had the three meatball soup and it was excellent. My wife and i had burritos and they were unique and excellent. This

For the price of one meal, at the Old Town over priced eateries, we had a great meal for two. We got this to go and it took all of 10 minutes to order, cook it and out the door this was for two meals. There were 8 tables in various

I don't want 2 write a bad review but I feel it's my DUTY to tell you this place isn't good. It's really cute inside, pinatas everywhere, and has it's own parking which is cool for Old Town, but the customer service was reaallllly bad! The waiter came up like 1 minute after we were looking at the menu said ""you ready?"" No hello, how r u, that kinda thing. And it wasn't a language barrier cuz I speak espanol. So anyways, food & drinks overpriced, cold, chips were cold & greasy, ewwww! Food was just typical American style Mexican. BUT if you want REAL Mexican there's a little place in barrio Logan called La Dona, 1784 Newton Ave, (between Beardsley St & Sigsbee St) 233-4939, that place is inexpensive, portions are big and very authentic!!

If you want good authentic mexican food in Old Town go to La Pinata. The food tastes great and a good price. We always do family events at this restaurant.
You can eat indoors or out on the pretty patio. You won't go wrong eating at La Pinata's.

Friends told us this was an awesome Mexican restaurant. But I thought the food was mediocre at best. The outside area was fun for the family, but overall not a place I will return looking for quality Mex. food.

We were told by friends that the most authentic place to have Mexican food in San Diego was at La Pinata's. Boy, were they right! Excellent food - I had the guacamole enchiladas - fabulous!

When you look at their website, La Pinata claims to be open until 9:30 on Saturday night. When you call them, they claim to be open until 9:30 on a Saturday night. And when you show up at the front door, their sign indicates that they are open until 9:30 on a Saturday night. But don't be fooled - if you show up at 8:45, they'll tell you they're already closed. What sort of business strategy is that? I wish I could have commented on the food, but the service STUNK!
