This place offers cheap but great tasting food. However, if you are not craving mexican food than this is not your place. The service is absolutely amazing.

Porkyland makes all kinds of local specialties like california burritos, fresh and delicious. But the best thing to get is their fresh carnitas, which you can get on a burrito or by the family size container. Also, their homemade tortillas are delicious, and you can buy some to take home. Good prices, friendly service.

I heard all of the rant of how great Porkyland was in La Jolla. It was soooooo overrated. First off, Trying to park in a mini strip mall with 10 parking spaces and 5 out of the 10 are marked 5 minute parking only??? It's like what the hell is this? Other than that parking is a total nightmare. We had to park 4 blocks away and walk, because there is no parking available in downtown La Jolla what-so-ever. The when we arrive there we are waiting to see their low prices that everyone talks about. $ 5.00 for a Carne Asada Burrito??? Thats a bargain??? Most Carne Burritos are around $ 3.50 on the average at taco shops. What a rip off.....and on top of the that, the burrito was small with hardly any meat in it. Paid $ 5.00 for a burrito the size of a chimichanga. The last thing was the cashier was rude and when I was telling her my order she would cut me off and talk over me saying " OK OK THAT'S IT? like 3 times in a row before I could finish my sentence or what I was saying. So my wife and I ordered 1 burrito, A plate of 6 small rolled taquitos and 2 large sodas. Almost came out to $ 20.00. Muy muy exspensive....How is that getting your money's worth?? Totally overrated and the atmosphere and customer service was terrible. Other than that the food was good, but nothing spectacular. You can find better taco shops in San Diego by far then Porkyland.

Pros: The Tortillas only!

Cons: Customer Service - Parking - Exspensive Prices

If you want real Mexican food, this is where to go in La Jolla. There are tables outside to eat at. The inside is a little junky looking, but the food is outstanding. Do not be put off by the appearance of this food stand. This is one of those gems that all the locals know about. This is not Tex-Mex or Yuppie Mexican food. It isn't gourmet Mexican food. It is just good hearty regular every day Mexican food like you would get on the streets of Ensanada.

Editorial from

We don't know how Porky the Pig would feel about Porkyland, which surely was named in his honor, but we like the place, as do many denizens of tony La Jolla---as well as other San Diegans who drive considerable distances to get their fill…
