Del Sur

2310 30th Street, San Diego

“In a city where great-tasting Mexican food often comes out of a taco stand or off the back of a truck, it’s when I sit down and order food off a printed menu that I’m most often disappointed. In spite of the bottomless chips and salsa or well-stocked bar.” Reader eater Ian Anderson had been to South Park’s Del Sur before right after it opened, and he had some complaints. How is it six months later?
