Enchilamesta, Located in IB Public House, Offers Authentic Mexican Food from Old Family Recipes that have to be the best in Imperial Beach. Owner and Chef Adam Robles has done a fantastic job of taking old family recipes handed down to his grandmother and now to him to offer up an exciting tasting menu of authentic Mexican food at great prices. Enchilamesta offers private party catering, at your home or at the bar, if you prefer.

Located inside IB Public House on Palm Avenue at 10th Street. The kitchen is open every Thursday through Saturday, 5 pm to Midnight, and Sunday from 2 pm to 8 pm. Taco Happy Hour every Thursday through Sunday form 5 pm to 7 pm, Tacos are 
$1.50.  It will have expanded hours during football season and is a restaurant that will delight your craving for great tasting authentic Mexican food.

Recently I had a chance to visit Enchilamesta with two friends and we all greatly enjoyed the meal that left us craving for another opportunity to go back and try some of Adam's other dishes. One of Adam’s specials is creatively called "A One Night Stand", which is served on Friday and Saturday only. It is a Chef choice appetizer, which is different every week. The night we visited, Adam had created a special of soft tacos, made up of Fish, Chicken, Adobada and Carne Asada. They were so great, we ended up ordering up a plate of each type, and shared them among ourselves. Lastly, we tried some unique and very enjoyable Lobster Rolls off the menu, that we greatly enjoyed, which happened to be the “One Night Stand” for the that particular weekend. 

Enchilamesta, is its own business located inside IB Public House and so you will get billed separately for the food and your drinks. It opens for business every Thursday through Sunday. Currently, it opens every day at 5 pm and is open every night until midnight except for Sunday when it closes at 8 pm. However, once football starts up you can expect them to open earlier during football season for the games. It is a Hidden Treasure in IB that you'll love visiting regularly when you have a craving for great tasting authentic food. 

As for the IB Public House, they offer up a huge selection of craft beers which has to be the largest selection in town. They open every day of the week at 3pm and close at 2 am. They have Happy Hour every day from 3 pm to 7 pm with $2 off pitchers of beer Thursday to Sunday and always 10% off your bill for all military. Taco Happy Hour every Thursday through Sunday form 5 pm to 7 pm, Tacos are $1.95.
