We used to go to Silvas, but lately when we go, we just didn't like the food that much. The dining room is so small, and it felt crowded in there. We got chips and salsa, and the chips were very hard and overcooked. We're not too impressed with this restaurant. It feels dirty to me.
Good mexican food. The portions are good size too. I made the mistake of getting a dinner and also nachos, and I couldn't eat it all. Burritos are really good. They cook their beans just right. They have a small dining area, which is ok. But, I usually just take out from the outside window. They have fast service.
For fast food mexican, this is a good place. I like it because I can drive through and be on my way. Prices are very reasonable. The drive through is a little awkward because you have to reach across your car outside the passenger window for the food, but that's ok. Good place for a quick lunch. I recommend it.
I like to buy my racing forms here to play the horses. They are about the only place locally beside going to the casino off track betting that you can buy a form. The stores isn't in the best part of El Cajon and you may see some homeless people walking the streets. But, if you can make a quick stop, it's a convenient place to buy drinks and snacks, papers, and racing forms.
Lattys Liquor has been on the corner of Grand Ave. and Foothill for as long as I can remember. I like going in there when I want to just make a quick stop. They are well stocked in the beverage of your choice,beer, soft drinks, snacks,deli sandwiches, etc. I used to buy six foot deli sandwiches there and now I buy lottery tickets there.
