About an hour south of San Diego, CA, along the Baja Coast, lies what was once a small fishing village called Puerto Nuevo. For many years, tourists flocked to the local fishermen's houses to feast on local pacific lobsters. These lobsters, split open and flash-fried, were presented on big platters and served with piping hot flour tortillas, delicious ranchero beans, Mexican rice and local red hot chili sauce. Guests would pick the meat from the shells and wrap it in the tortillas along with the beans, rice and a dousing of hot sauce! And of course, icy cold Mexican beers and pitchers of margaritas would be the beverage of choice!
In 1983, Rick DiRienzo, the founder of Rockin' Baja Lobster, introduced these lobster dinners to legions of fans in San Diego. He converted the historical Old Bonita Store in Bonita California, to a Puerto Nuevo style lobster house. In 1992, he opened a second location on the harbor in Oceanside, CA. It was here that he created his now famous Baja Buckets®.
