Iconic restaurant in Mexicali (70 years old). Operated by a strong family tradition (it has been in the family for all the time). Clean, spacious, good parking. Primarily Mexican food.

Cenaduria Selecta is famous for their Enchiladas. But their menu offers a variety of meals, shrimp, chicken, pork, meat, many options to choose from. For breakfast my favorite is chilaquiles and for dinner chilles rellenos or chicken fajitas.

Very affordable breakfast buffet! 144.00 pesos for adults and 92.00 for kids. Breakfast had great dishes such as chicharron en salsa roja, nopales y carne en salsa, chilaquiles, huevos con jamón, menudo, barbacoa,frijoles refritos, jugos, fruta, pan y postres. The coffee was a little cold but the home made flour tortillas were great!

The atmosphere was pleasant albeit... More

They have the best tacos de machaca in Mexicali. Not to mention flautas, lengua en mole, tacos dorados, etc. etc. And they serve the food quickly and for a great price.
