Great restaurant for everybody who likes Mexican food. The Café de Olla is the best. It reminds me the grandma and grandpa's old times.

If you are in Tijuana, try La Espandana. The menu may not be the most adventurous compared to some of the more "nouvelle cuisine" places that have opened recently in TJ, but most of the people there were Mexicans and the food was exceptionally good. Like in so many Tijuana places, the service is also exceptional. And there is a secure parking lot that is part of the restaurant's property, so you have a safe place to leave your car. Highly recommended!

This restaurant is located in the Zona Rio of Tijuana and is in an area where there are many restaurants. We came for lunch and split the Queso Fundido with Chorizo, green peppers and mushrooms and the Chicken Tampiquena which is grilled chicken breast pieces and comes with guacamole, soup or salad and other garnishes including fresh corn tortillas. We loved the food, it was flavorful and substantial. We had margaritas and beer, the margarita was good; maybe a little sweet. We had Tres Leche Cake for dessert which came with ice cream. Very yummy! This restaurant is not a taco joint, it is a nice Mexican restaurant with a classy atmosphere and open kitchen. Lunch for 2 with the appetizer, entree, 2 beers, 2 margaritas and a piece of cake cost us $50 and we felt like we received good value for our money. I will return.

Want a taste of real mexican food? Then this is ths place.
First this is the best mexican breakfast place in TJ.
Lunch, no problemo, from the tampiqueñas (mexican steak with guacamole, an enchilada and refried beas) to the chile relleno ( stuffed pepper) you have variety and great tastes to enjoy.
If its dinner time try the mexican antojitos sellection

Real Mexican Homestyle food, no sofistication? GO FOR IT!!!!
