Located off of the 5 freeway on the corner of Coronado Avenue and Hollister (behind the Fire Station,) ED Fernandez Restaurant serves the best Birria de res, Mexican stew, this side of the border. No question. Flavorful and epically delicious, the juicy and tender meat — beef, lamb and mutton — is served on a lightly fried corn tortillas and topped with cheese, salsa, cilantro and onion.
The ultimate mom-and-pop joint, the 52 Weeks Of Tacos wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the unassuming ED Fernandez Restaurant & Catering for quality Mexican food and impeccable service.
Be prepared, though, parking is a bitch and the lines can be very long.
