La Siesta is a great meeting place. Very down home Mexican food. Good chips and salsa too. Not a bad place to have a quick meal.

Who doesn't love La Siesta. Great San CLemente iconic place. Have a pitcher of beer, bring your friends and eat some good food.

Whenever we have guests from out of town, we take them to La Siesta so that they can experience just how great our local food is.

For breakfast, I love the bacon and avocado omelet, available with potatoes and toast (my favorite) or rice and beans.

At lunch or dinner, I can't seem to get away from the carnitas plate or Jaime's Special, a modification on the traditional carnitas in a flavorful tomato stew with vegetables. When it gets to my plate, I never think I can eat the whole thing but I always do!

After I eat at La Siesta I need a siesta myself! The reason; their delicious margaritas and generous portions leave me full and ready for a nap! They also have wonderful chips and salsa

Located on El Camino Real at the south end of San Clemente, La Siesta is a local??s favorite to families and surfers alike. A bit on the weathered side, but the food is authentic Mexican style and the salsa is a winner too. They have won the San Clemente Salsa Challenge quite a few times over the years. The service is friendly (many of them are from the same family). They aren't shy about sitting down for a chat if you have the time.

The Mexican food is priced very reasonable. Try a Family Carnitas plate (feeds 4+) or a Baja style fish taco (don??t forget the chips & salsa). Their enchiladas are one of my favorites (Monday night is Enchilada Night). Their tortilla soup can be some of the best you??ll find.

Beer by the bottle or glass only (no pitchers), wine and tequila margaritas. (I would have rated them higher, if they offered pitchers of beer.)

Not formal by any standard, but hey it??s not the Ritz Carlton, just its good Mexican food in a casual setting.
