Our Story

Tacos - Puesto | Mexican Street Food & Bar | San Diego, La Jolla, Los Olivos Irvine

Our Story

Before Puesto, we had all left San Diego to chase ambitions in other ventures. Though we found individual success in other places, it was tacos that brought us back together and back to California —Chef Luisteen’s tacos, to be exact. His passion for completely re –defining the taco brought us back to our hometown of San Diego to start a family business, the taco stand we’d never even dreamed of. Now we’re tacoteurs and have never looked back.


Handmade maíz azul stone-ground tortillas, sustainable meats and seafood, slow-cooked guisados, and scratch salsas: Puesto is a celebration of fundamental Mexican flavors and an homage to the cosmopolitan palate of Mexico City.

Bar Program

Grounded in carefully curated agave spirits, our bar program delivers fresh margaritas, housemade aguas frescas, and wines from the burgeoning Valle de Guadalupe region of Baja.


The Puesto Party Philososphy says that every party will be big, bright, loud, and refined. Imagine that a wall-to-wall crowd of stylish people is eating cool food and having colorful conversation, but your debutante grandmother is also there drinking a lot of tequila. Our parties are dedicated to her—and everyone else that comes to Puesto.
