This ia a great place for breakfast. Under a huge "sombrero" a round restaurant with all the Mexican dishes. On the main blvd , this place has been here over 50 years. Frequented by high end locals , easy location and parking.

Really nice food, plenty of grilled Mexican food and amazing deserts. Tequila is fantastic and considering that a meal for two and four tequila cost just over 40 USD I'll say is reasonably priced.

When travelling to TJ this is one of our work groups go to places. The owner has a high standard for food cleanliness and food preparation. The bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with cheese is my favorite, but there are many great things. One of the biggest menus I have ever seen. They will also make whatever you are hungry for... More

El Potrero is my favorite breakfast spot in Tijuana. It is an attractive, upscale restaurant with an ambiance and attitude that has you feeling right at home as soon as you enter the door. It is staffed with professional wait-staff serving delicious and copious amounts of food. I do not know about other mornings, but on Sunday mornings a mariachi... More

Food was OK service was a little slow and had some language barriers. There was one person who spoke a little English but this is to be expected. Next time my Spanish will be far better as I practice and embrace Spanish

So I must have driven by this place a half-dozen times on my way to the doctor out in La Mesa (and even walked back once so the anesthesia would wear off!) - and I never saw a huge sombrero just off the boulevard!

I believe we visited this restaurant a total of 3 times when we stayed in Tijuana. It seemed that we were always being drawn back here for the great food and their willingness to accommodate large groups. One great feature is that they would cook you any Mexican dish you wanted whether on the menu or not..

If you find yourself in this part of Tijuana, El Potrero is a must go to. I have traveled to many places around the world and I don't prefer 5 star dinning.
