- 4125 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92105 | Directions
You’ve probably seen Vallarta’s vintage cobblestone façade along El Cajon Boulevard in City Heights and wondered what goes on in there. You may have pictured half-drunk vaqueros leering from a hazy bar, out past the pool tables and into a spacious dancehall. You may have envisioned women in flowing dresses and men in white cowboy hats, their jeans held up by gigantic, glistening buckles, dancing to traditional norteño bands as a hole-in-the-wall kitchen dishes out steaming street-style tacos. If so, felicidades! You’re correct. Vallarta is a ghost town by day, a dance party by night. Cheap beer. Good food. No sandals allowed.
