Welcome to Pokez!
Pokez is a downtown San Diego Mexican restaurant featuring authentic flavors and classic dishes for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.
The Pokez menu offers a wide array of delicious plates, all of which are easily adjusted for vegetarian and vegan diners. Our chefs sauté up a succulent carne asada for California burritos, but they are equally good at searing a mean tofu for the tofu fajitas! We cook with vegetable oil, not lard, so our beans and rice are 100% vegetarian, low in fat and sodium, and have no MSG or artificial anything. We use the finest ingredients including organic produce when possible.
We offer both low and high octane beverages for your consumption: from house-made sangria, beer, and soda to freshly juiced combinations of fruits and veggies. We recently debuted an espresso bar as well since we serve breakfast all day.
First opened on March 16, 1994, Pokez has been a thriving staple of the downtown restaurant scene ever since. In 2013, the interior and exterior of the restaurant were renovated, and we are looking fresh for our 20th year in business.
We make all our food with love. Come by, pop your favorite tune in on the juke box, and let us cook your next meal!
