About the Menu

The menu allows customers a wide variety of options: Build your own Taco Platter with choices like sautéed fish, shrimp or scallops, char broiled chicken, carnitas, grilled fresh local vegitables or carne asada. You can also enjoy delicious favorites like flame roasted Poblano chilies stuffed with fall-off-the-bone-tender carnitas, or filled with sautéed shrimp, scallop and Mahi Mahi. The menu also offers many traditional delights like seasonal grilled vegetable enchiladas topped with low-fat yogurt, char broiled carne asada burritos, crispy fried beef or chicken tacos and of course the famous fish taco. It's honest food, prepared fresh daily and only from scratch using wholesome ingredients – fresh herbs and spices, never powdered or granulated spice mixes like most and our customers appreciate it. Vegetarian, gluten free and vegan choices are also readily available. 

Want a Margarita or an ice cold beer? Las Olas Margaritas are famous, and many of our draft beer selections are from San Diego's own incredible breweries. For something out of the box and incredibly delicious, try our house infused roasted pineapple and jalapeno tequila in a Pineapple n' Chile Margarita some time.

Staying committed to freshness, quality and value through the years has made Las Olas the popular landmark it is today. We look forward to seeing you either in Carlsbad and Cardiff some time soon.
