PUESTO from Best Mexican Restaurants in San Diego
Before Puesto, we had all left San Diego to chase ambitions in other ventures. Though we found individual success in other places, it was tacos that brought us back together and back to California —Chef Luisteen’s tacos, to be exact. His passion for completely re –defining the taco brought us back to our hometown of San Diego to start a family business, the taco stand we’d never even dreamed of. Now we’re tacoteurs and have never looked back. Located near historic Seaport Village, Puesto at The Headquarters resides in the original San Diego Police Headquarters building between the USS Midway and the San Diego Convention Center. The large patios stagger in and out of towering steel doors, which open to original walls exposing layers of history. Internationally acclaimed designer Thomas Schoos has imagined the space as an industrial homage to the streets of Mexico City. Multiple modern murals from artist Chor Boogie lend award-winning San Diego tacos a vibrant backdrop.
