Filipino food at its best!

The restaurant is located at a small plaza near the 805 Freeway exit. It specializes in Filipino food. The serving portions are very generous and delicious. The price is very reasonable. The restaurant is clean and there's a constant stream of customers going in to eat. You can dine in or... read more

New to filipino food we asked for the top sellers.Not sure what we had. One was a chicken curry based and the other a beef Indian based. I was surprised that neither was spicy which was what I was expecting. Both dishes had cutup pieces with bones instead of bone free pieces. Did not like that. However the flavours were... More

Large portion, good tasting, cheaper price. Aren't we all looking for that kind of a meal? Wherever we go we make sure that we read reviews and if it does justice. A hole in the wall place that I will always go back to whenever we're in town. Love it!!!

If you're craving for some Filipino food then this place is a must. While on vacation in San Diego we were surprised to find this place in National City. All the regular favourites were there: pancit, pinakbet, awesome dinuguang, lumpia, chicken bbq and of course adobo (there was more, but that's what I ordered). The portions are large and served...

I do not think they r rude to any customers, my husband is caucasian and he goes there when i send him, he never complained about the servers being rude. Servers r always busy and in a hurry but i think it could be a language barrier, some servers are not fluent in English and it is mistaken as rudeness.... More

They have a big selection of dishes. The price is pretty cheap for the portions. $7 will get you a big 2 selection plate that will easily be 2 meals. Solid food here, very good value for money!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the San Diego area. Every time I visit, I make the drive to National City to visit this small authentic Filipino gold mine. Tita's is located in a strip mall and is always packed with customers. Tita's looks like a small canteen so if your looking for a fancy dine in place... More

I was warned that this was a "hole in the wall" and there was always a line, but the was good and you got large servings. Went there for lunch and there was truth in their recommendation. I will be going back to try some of the other food that they had. While they had chairs and tables, I would... More

They are rude to customers in general, Filipino or not. They are actually nicer to non-Filipinos! Great food though, that's why we keep coming back!

Nice selection of food, but your favorites are not sold everyday. It is your basic point point food. Good cost for what you get. If you want more restaurant style check out their second spot up the street Tita's II after 5pm it's restaurant only.
