We visit TJ at least once a month on our way to our home at Bajamar. The omelets are great!!! Great flavors of Mexico in the sauces. Try the caldo de res (beef soup) also. Great service and reliable valet parking. We had our car washed there also!!

Big servings of your favorite dishes, huevos rancheros , chilaquiles , combination plate or any other thing you crave. The coffee is fresh and if you like the mexican style cafe de olla you are in luck since they have plenty to go around. Go their often.

The building looks like a big sombrero hat. Once you are inside you are treated very special. They bring you a plate of pig skins in salsa and grilled tortillas you break the tortilla apart and eat like chips. The coffee was so good I think they called it cafe de holla its made with cinamin water and other special ingredients you really don't need sugar. The food was great and the restaurant decor is very nice.

One of the few places I've found that has Chiles en Nogada. Also great steaks and always great service. They used to always throw in a free shot of house tequila but don't seem to do that anymore. Contrary to what other reviews say I prefer the larger corn tortilla shells they give instead of the normal salty nacho style chips.

What a great place, great pictures with alot of character. Like the first review stated, ask for the chips, those shells they send out are a waste of time. Make sure to have the tortilla soup, absolutely one of the best i've ever had. My friend had the fish with veggies steamed in foil, she was very happy !!! I had the big Ribeye and it was above and beyond fantastic. Great decor, that Sombrero caught my eye and sucked me in with no regrets !!!!!!
