    I dined at Cabo Cantina in Newport on November 28, 2017 and ordered tacos, two orders of nachos, and two combination dinner meals. We also visit this place frequently.

    My girlfriend and I ate at Fiesta Cantina when we first arrived in San Diego on April 2, 2017. I ended up ordering Surf and Turf Tacos while she ordered the Fiesta Burrito.

    Sounds quite tasty. How about you file a claim?
