Porkyland is family-owned and locally operated, and for the past 38 years our mission has remained the same: To deliver an authentic, traditional Mexican dining experience full of freshness and flavor. You have the ability to customize your menu to ensure your guests are satisfied.


Owners Pepe and Deborah Stepensky originally moved from Mexico City to San Diego in 1986, and quickly discovered there was a need for more authentic Mexican food, but in a fast casual atmosphere. Porkyland Mexican Grill helped fulfill their dream to bring a little bit of Mexico City to the community of San Diego. Porkyland Mexican Grill prides itself on serving original family recipes made from scratch daily.

Pepe and Deborah currently operate Porkyland Mexican Grill servicing the Del Mar, Carmel Valley and Torrey Hills neighborhoods as well as two longtime staples of Seaport Village: Margaritas Kitchen & Cantina, and San Diego Burger Company.


All of our salsas, sauces, marinades and guacamole are made fresh, in house daily. We bring authentic and traditional flavors to life in our kitchens every day, and every meal is made to order.
