I've been here a couple of times. Different bc what ever meal you order, you get a small quesadilla, carne en su jugo, I would describe it as a hot broth. Two types of potatoes, onions salad one I would describe as regular, the other...as muster flavor, chips and salsa,beans and a desert. The prices are expensive but most places in the are also pricey.More

This is a very old and traditional steak house in Tijuana; old western style. Not too much has changed since 30 years ago. Food is not bad, just average. The only thing that the owner update constantly are the prices. There are many other restaurants...in Tijuana that will have the same prices or even lower with better quality of steaks and modern. Not a good wine selection.More

It's been around for years and years, which tells you just how good it is! It's my friend Adriana's very favorite, she always orders the pickled liver as an appetizer and the coyota for dessert

What a wonderful place to have a bit of nostalgia. The steak, the quesadilla, the guacamole and especially the beans were all wonderful little reminders of how mom used to cook. I had a great time enjoying a new restaurant I had never experienced before.We...started it off with a great cabernet-Norte 32 and paired it with a parillada mixed with steak, chicken and ribs. I will return for a bit of nostalgia.More

Had lunch here in late July 2016 with a friend who lives in TJ. He's been going here for years and was excited to introduce the restaurant to us. Not typical "American" beef, so don't expect a Texas style steak. Baja style of steak, with...some great fried sides. If you are in the area, you will not go wrong with this restaurant. Great staff and a wonderful meal.More

The first time, I was introduced to El Rodeo (ER) was when my girl friend (Now, My lovely wife, Amy) and her parents invited us in 1979. Since then, We make a bee line every chance we get to the ER. Over the years, our...family, as the kids grew enjoyed the very rustic cowboy atmosphere. The outside as well as the inside looks like an old western cowboy movie set. There are free rides for the kids on Shetland ponies and jungle Jim at the far end of the complex. This place is family oriented and frequent mainly by Mexicans, businessmen for lunch and occasionally you will some Gringos. We recently went with my grown up kids, their friends, my wife, our daughter and grandson. The menu is very simple with a dozen items of BBQ beef and some chicken. Since there was eight of us, we ordered the two (2) Family Grills or “Parrilla Familiar.” Perfect for eight persons. The cowboy waiter, Ramon who I've known for over 35 years, took our drink orders. Usually beer in the main beverage. However, Soft and hard drinks are available. But don't hesitate to go for the Bloody Mary (Clamato Style)...Outrageously good and the best inTown! Now, after your order is in...Ramon will bring out the standard delectables of several mini courses. It all starts, of course with chips and salsa, accompanied with “Escabeche,” two small plates of marinated vinaigrette diced potatoes, onions and carrots and the other with an added difference of cubed sized cooked beef liver chunks. Next, you get a “Quesadilla,” a grill heated flour tortilla with melted Mexican ranchero cheese. 3rd a small cup of beef broth consomme, nice and hot with all the beef flavorings you can imagine. Absolutely delicious! And finally, a crispy salad of lettuce with beets and onion and dressing of your choice. I usually throw in some of the escabeche potatoes, just to kick it up a notch. And finally, the meat entree of Parrilla Familiar are brought to you on a small square styled hibachi grill with one or two hot coals to keep the meat hot and sizzling. Not to be out done, Ramon brings a cup of "Frijoles de la Olla" or Pot of Beans. Loaded on the your hibachi are grilled and savory beef flank steaks, cross-cut ribs strips and “Tripitas de Leche.” For those folks, uninitiated, to Tripitas it is not TRIPE. But it is the mammary veins of the cow's udder and filled with milk, cut into strips. All meats are cooked in the main kitchen, grilled to your liking. I usually order meat medium rare and the Tripitas “Extra Crispy,” almost french fries tasty. If you are lactose intolerant, Beware Tripitas are loaded with Lactose! After this fine lunch you are automatically greeted with a desert known as “Coyotas,” a flat like tortilla layered in between with a splatter of Mexican sugar and cinnamon and oven baked. It's great with a cup of coffee. You can opt out to take it home and enjoy it the next morning with your coffee. You can heat the Coyotas in a Microwave for about 15 seconds. If you looking to buy more, there is a bakery right behind the ER adjacent to the parking area. All in all, ER is one on the best restaurants in Tijuana... When our vacation stay comes to an end, we make sure to leave late morning, to arrive before the crowd hits the ER. Most of the Mexicans come a bit later after 1:30 pm. Enjoy a Mexican Vaquero Lunch!More

This place has been a clasic in Tijuana for many decades, and I am sorry to report that the steaks (which is why they were famouse) are not good anymore. The ambiance is great (old west style) the service is excellent and the complimentary appetizers...and dessert are great but the main show (the steak) was very disapointing, very small portion and not great quality, might go back and give it another chance.More
