The Parkway Drive taco shop picked up 15 percent of the vote, as well as several positive statements in the comments section. It narrowly edged out (12 percent), Campo Road favorite (10 percent) and national chain (10 percent.)

I missed the poll but I am in total agreement. Though Saritas is closer to where I live, and I love Mario's as a sit down Mexican place, the best Mexican take out in La Mesa is El Azteca!
