We eat here often and have never been disappointed, the service is great and the people are warm and friendly. We enjoy the margaritas very much. The food is very very good.

If you want an authentic Mexican experience Tijuana is the best in The Dalles. The Relleno was made with a Pablano pepper and the enchilada sauce was excellent. Great place!

...but for me there wasn't much flavor. We expected more from a hole in the wall family restaurant that this place appeared to be. We got the carne asada, it really had little flavor, didn't taste grilled . The relleno was tasty. Of course I usually order grilled jalapenos with my meal, should have done that to add a little...

We tried Tijuana for the first time today. I like it this is my favorite Mexican restaurant in The Dalles. The food was good. Nothing fancy or to brag about but it was fresh hot and I enjoyed it. The service was good and the restaurant was clean it was a good experience to stop here!

It is a little Mexican Restaurant that is at the East side of town. It has good Mexican food that is a very reasonable price at least for lunch. They are very friendly.

This is an unassuming little restaurant on the east end of 3rd Street in The Dalles. The BEST Mexican food in town. Great menu, good specials, family friendly.

The lunch specials are a fair price and always come out fast! On one visit I ordered a tamale and it came to me hard as a rock. It was so hard I couldn't bite it! I am guessing it was reheated in the microwave too long. The waiter was apologetic and replaced it with something else. Other than that... More

Stopped in for dinner after a Lind day on the road. We were excited to have some good food and we were disappointed. I would try some were else if you want to eat well.

Good, fast and thrifty. It's my go-to place for a quick lunch. They have the best $5 lunch menu in town. Always satisfied when I leave!
