In the middle of three months in Italy, I needed a break from Italian food. My students had raved about Tijuana, so I thought I'd give it a try.
Positives: Nice decor, and a large variety of menu options. Portions are large, which is a plus if you're a starving student, I guess. Food was mostly good: I enjoyed the chips & salsa (and you can choose the heat level), the tacos, rice and beans. The margarita was not a taste I'm used to, but not bad.
Negatives: It's really, really noisy, result of music videos at full volume. A matter of taste, I suppose. I've had better guacamole out of the freezer at Costco. I also ordered a side of refried beans, since the menu said nothing about the tacos being accompanied by anything. Got a large bowl of beans (enough for several servings), and more on my plate. When I finished, the waitress asked if I didn't like the beans, as I had left the bowl untouched. I pointed out that I hadn't known the tacos came with beans, whereupon she game me the "me ne frega"* look and dumped the plates she'd been gathering up all over the table. Cost me a good 30 euros or so.
Overall, a so-so experience. You could do a lot worse. Go with realistic expectations (consider the size of the Mexican population in Florence -- what do you expect?), and you won't be disappointed.
