Duo Ceviche

This was a delicious, large portion. The accompanying salsa and chips were tasty, as were the" healthy margaritas". Friendly efficient service. The ambiance was improved with the patio shade, misters, and the afternoon Temecula wind.

The chicken enchiladas were absolutely amazing. Enough to share and the flavor was perfect. The chicken was shredded and tender, the salsa verde was amazing with cilantro and lime and the melted cheese on top was mouth watering. Craving it again already.

Went there for a date night with my wife. Absolutely awesome chicken enchiladas with the verde sauce. Both my wife and I didn't leave a scrap on our plates and that never happens. Wonderful atmosphere and service in Old Town.

Chicken Mole

This is SUPER flavorful. Chicken was tender and the mole was delicious. I paired it with a Margarita and some homemade guacamole. I already made another reservation for next week. Can't wait to be back!

I'm a cook that prepares a lot of Mexican cuisine. Today was my first time out for a sit down meal with my wife since the Covid experience. That said my meal here today at Espadin in Temecula, was a home run. The shrimp enchiladas were perfectly prepared and tasty. The Cadillac Margies were icing on the cake and our server Allen was awesome. I'd come back just to watch Adriana race around the restaurant taking care if anyone in need.... Thanks to all!!

Carne Asada Burrito

Contrary to other reviews, I found that this burrito was moist and flavorful. The meat was cooked amazingly and the onions complimented it. There are no beans or rice but it comes with a side of beans and rice. The burrito only has meat, onions, and an avocado salsa, but they all go well with the toasted tortilla. I'm glad I got the burrito even after reading other deceptive reviews.

Literally the BEST SOPES IVE EVER HAD! I'm so sad they've been closed during quarantine I'm counting down the days they open so I can eat them again. The servers are also some of the nicest people I've ever met. Even when they're busy they go out of their way for each of their customers to make sure they have everything they need and are so sweet. I can't wait for you guys to open again! I'll be there as soon as you do to get my sopes and salsa!!

The BEST enchilada I've ever had. It's unlike anything I've ever had before. Whenever I bring someone new to the restaurant I make them try it and they totally agree. Not to mention, great drinks and salsa!!

Queso Dip

Where do I even begin! Espadin is my favorite Mexican spot in Temecula and every time I come here I get the chorizo queso! The queso with the chips just MELTS in your mouth! Also the service here is incredible, everyone is willing to help you out with the menu and their personalities are amazing! It makes me feel like it's family owned. I will always recommend Espadin to others and I will always come back!

Espadin Super Nachos

Espadín is the best Mexican food in Temecula (or anywhere, for that matter). Their food is fresh, unique but traditional, and overall incredible. The portions are big and there is not one that that I have had that doesn't taste amazing! The staff are nice, helpful, and make the whole experience absolutely incredible. The bartenders are fantastic and make amazing drinks (the margaritas are the best!) When family comes to visit, I always take them to Espadín for the food, atmosphere, and quality time spent together! You can't beat this restaurant's vibe and food. I will always recommend this place! Thank you for the amazing times, Espadín!

One of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been to! I have dined in many restaurants from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and these sopes were outstanding! Sopes were served to perfection. Drinks were refreshing and presentation was beautiful. Sangria was exquisite. I would definitely be returning.

Best Mexican food in Temecula! First, the atmosphere is amazing, rustic but elegant and so comfortable and inviting. My chicken enchilada dish was delicious. Generous amounts of chicken baked together with a green salsa, cheese and cilantro crema, perfection! The serving size was generous and I even had enough to take a little home. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in town!

Battered Fish

Stopped in for lunch on our way to Oceanside, 6/24/20. Carne Asada tacos and battered fish tacos were fantastic. Topping off the meal was the fantastic service provided by the server/bartender. We be coming by again next time we are in Temecula. R R..Banning, CA

This dish is fabulous! Shrimp cooked to perfection! Verde sauce was amazing!

Motochrisy about 2 months ago


The BEST chicken nachos ever made. It's a shareable appetizer with shredded chicken , tortilla chips covered in a cheese sauce, not just cheese but a blended creamy deliciously seasoned cheese sauce. Been waiting anxiously for Espadín to re open. My favorite place in Old Town. I always order the nachos and a Conejo my favorite drink there. Can't wait to go back!

We love Espadin, always have the queso dip and a selection of tacos, Whatever we've chosen, be it the carne asada, shrimp any we're fantastic. We've taken friends and had fajitas, burritos and many other dishes, none have ever disappointed. Add the great food to a lovely margarita and you have the perfect meal.

Traditional Churros

These churros are quite possibly the best dessert item I have ever tried! The churros melted in your mouth and were accompanied by delicious caramel and chocolate sauce. I will be dreaming about these for a long time!

Carne Asada

I'm very picky about my carne Asada and this by far was the best I've ever tried. Fast service and a welcoming environment. I'll definitely be back soon and I don't stay close to this restaurant but I'm willing to make the drive.
