The History

About us

It was in 2004 when Albert realized his dream and opened his first taco shop. This 400 square foot space was located on Washington St. in El Cajon, CA. The taco shop was an immediate hit and quickly became the home of "The Big Rolled Tacos". As the years went by, Albert consistently strived to make the "Mexican food" experience special and unforgettable.

Four years after opening his first taco shop, Albert had gained enough confidence and experience to take it to the next level. The new and improved "Albert's Fresh Mexican Food", home of "The Big Rolled Tacos", was moved to it's new location on Los Coches and Old Hwy 80 in Lakeside, Ca. This larger location allows for a great in dining experience as well as take out.

Your wonderful experience at Albert's Fresh Mexican Food begins with your first step through the door. From the aroma of GREAT food, friendly employees, clean atmosphere and the baja-style decor makes Albert's very inviting. Once you have placed your order, have a seat in the comfortable dining area and enjoy a basket of fresh warm chips and never ending trips to the always fresh salsa bar. Let's not forget to mention the large flat screen tv's always playing the best in sports.

There are currently three locations for your convenience in East County, one in Lakeside, La Mesa and El Cajon.
