Off the beaten path, Hernandez HideAway is well worth the drive! Situated adjacent to Lake Hodges in southwest Escondido, it’s such a lovely ride down Del Dios Road through Elfin Forest. The building itself is quite old and historic. Built around the same time as Lake Hodges Dam (1918), eventually it transformed into this charming Mexican restaurant in 1972. Supposedly home of the original margarita (!!), if you order one here it is definitely legit. Probably among the top 3 margs I’ve had in the county. The menu is unique. Not necessarily the standard fare you’d find at run of the mill Mexican restaurants. Everything I’ve ordered has been outstanding. Especially their huge beef burrito blanketed with a delicious enchilada sauce that I could take a bath in. Highly recommended.
