Fulano's Mexican Cafe is a refreshing change from this fast paced world of ours. We enjoy the clean environment, fresh ingredients and friendly service. The food is great. We go every week if possible.

My family and I have traveled the world and also lived in Mexico for years. We first tried Fulano's two years ago, after driving by 100's of times. The owner, John, has shared secrets with Martha Stuart and has perfected a few homeade recipes that are all delicious. The garnish is fresh and raw, the portions are large, and each dish is served hot. The fresh salsas and margaritas are the best around. This is a great secret spot in North County and a true proprietor of fine food.

I needed to write a review to counter D P's because we've been going there for years and it's always great. But the key is that you can't order safe like a taco or tostada. It's good, but for a first time visit, (s)he's right, it's really expensive. But what can you do with a giant taco that hasn't been done?

We recommend the Nachos (which are made with homemade chips, with 3 types of cheese, and slivers of jalapeno and spicy carrot, with guac and sour cream in the middle) and the Puerco Oaxaqueno, which are two marinated pork cutlets, pan seared, and placed on top of grilled chipotle sauce. It is damn good.

Also, on Fridays, John (the proprietor) has fresh fish, always cooked very well, placed atop mashed blue potatoes with a green and red pepper sauce. Very nice.

Also, get the Horni Margaritas, they are home made (with, you know, actual limes rather than a mix?).

And it's a family affair, so if you walk in like an as$, that's how you'll be treated.

Fulano's --

Roberto's (drive thru) food at Chart House prices. I haven't gone into a restaurant in a while and been offended by the prices like this. Food was average. Service was quick, but rude. Yuck. This restaurant is just taking advantage of the back-up at other local mexican restaurants.

Never again.
