Oscar’s Mexican Seafood

Oscar’s has expanded from one tiny storefront on Turquoise Street to three locations and still manages to be the one of the top-ranked restaurants in San Diego on a notoriously fickle social media site. There’s almost always a line out the door, but service is fast and friendly.
