Tequila 100 Restaurant Review

: This laid-back establishment, formerly Alambres, has been around for more than a decade. The full bar features 100 types of tequila; affordable, tasty margaritas are the name of the game. Choose from 25 types including an avocado margarita with, yes, fresh avocados. Tortillas are made by hand daily in-house, and the menu contains the usual suspects (including quesadillas, fajitas and carne asada burritos) --- all satisfying, overall. Start with the chicharron de queso, thin, crisp rolled cheese --- a dramatic dish that’s fun to eat and share. We favor the traditional alambres --- five tortillas served with meat, grilled onions and bell peppers. The winner on the extensive breakfast menu is the enfrijoladas toluquenas --- tortillas with scrambled eggs, onion, Serrano chilies and chorizo, smothered in a creamy black bean sauce. An energetic young crowd makes up the scene, especially late night, as DJs spin and food is served until 3 a.m. on weekends. Karaoke is another draw.

Breakfast

The Best Enfrijoladas tolkenas I have ever tasted! Rolled tortillas filled with scrambled eggs and covered in black bean sauce and sprinkled with chorizo chili and onion. Fresh OJ woow! this was a bonus then I noticed free flowing Champange for only $10 that made my brunch experience one of the best I have had in San Diego. Service was prompt ,they had the news paper, and the general ambiance was relaxed - perfect for a Sunday Afternoon. Will revisit for Dinner to re-rate the place, see if they capture that last star!

This place has great food. I had the surf and turf tacos with rib eye and Langostino lobster. They were excellent. The drinks were good, and our server was fast and very friendly. Great location too, especially if you can score one of the patio tables and people watch in the middle of the gaslamp.
