Our Boxing Coach Joe Vargas loves his Mexican food, so he brought us along to his favorite taco shop just around the corner from The Arena.


Coach Joe Vargas:
What do you want to drink, dawg?

Mike, our manager, one time brought me here, when I first started. And I’ve been coming here maybe twice a week I get out here. And I get all their specials and they have some really good food here. I didn’t think they would have that good of Mexican food in Point Loma, but they got it. That guy in the back, he always knows what I want. He already started ordering my food as soon as he saw me.

This is it right here, baby.

What is that?

Coach Joe Vargas:
This is shrimp cooked in lime with hot sauce. Us Mexicans like to put lime and salt on everything. Don’t ask me why.
