Jalisco Cantina is conveniently located right across the street from us. They are a full-service restaurant with truly the best Baja-style Mexican. Everything is made fresh, even their handmade tortillas and chips. The reason I mention it here is because beyond their incredible food they serve the very best margarita I have ever had. They know tequila and wine being from Southern California and it shows because both their tequila list and wine list is top notch!
