Currently at San Diego on temporary assignment and hungry. Asked a local filipino where is the best filipino food. He without hesitation said "Titas" and gave me directions how to get there. As soon as I entered I noticed great smells of food. Ordered the 2 entrees. It was inexpensive and taste was very very good. I recommend this place... More

We're from San Francisco and whenever we come to visit our relatives in San Diego we never miss to get meal from Tita's. Their serving is huge and their cooking for me is authentic filipino dishes. The kitchen helpers/ servers are polite.

If there was a good picture of a hole-in-the-wall restaurant, I think this would be it. Food portions are VERY generous. One combo can easily, easily feed two people. Quality and taste of food is really good. Can't beat their prices.

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

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 order to go. There are no servers. You seat... 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!

Thank satobt
