As an East County resident, I was very happy when Casa de Pico moved from Old Town to Grossmont Center in La Mesa several years back. I have been many times to lunch, dinner and happy hour at this colorful and festive Mexican restaurant. I still need to make it to Casa’s Sunday Brunch, which I’m sure is excellent! My favorite dessert is the fried ice cream. Make sure you save room, as it is well worth it!

Weather usually dictates whether I sit inside or on their patio. It can get pretty busy at peak hours, but the restaurant is quite large and spacious. The menu is extensive, so I try to order something different every time I go. This is a great venue for young children, as the ambiance consists of brightly colored decor, a strolling mariachi band and lively Mexican music playing in the background.

There always seems to be large gatherings when I’ve gone, as this is a perfect party venue. Casa de Pico has banquet rooms, as well as catering available for your private events.

A San Diego favorite for 50 years, Casa de Pico has earned awards for Best Mexican Restaurant, Best Patio Dining, Best Margarita, Best Guacamole, Top 50 Best Mexican Restaurants and Hot 150 Restaurants. Filled with vivid colors, hand-painted artwork, classic and authentic folk art, Casa de Pico makes every guest feel like they’ve travelled to Mexico and back, all in one day.
