The website and the sign at the entrance indicates that the restaurant opens at 7:00pm but opting for an early dinner we were told that the kitchen opens at 8pm. While Tijuana claims authentic Mexican dishes, we found our entrees to be bland and overpriced. When we requested spicy salsa we were given the American Tabasco brand pepper sauce "McIlhenny" which took us even further from true Mexican cuisine. Don't let the restaurant name fool you.

The place is really nice, they did a nice job with the deco and the staff was very helpful.
But when it comes to the food... It was kind of tasteless and the meat was dry.
I have already eat much more mexican food from food truck. Also it is kind of expensive for what you get (149 pesos for 3 tacos).
It is not the kind of place I would recommend.

We came here just attracted by the atmosphere and The design of The place. At The beginning everything was fine but, after taking 2 enchilladas we found The meat really bad: The beaf's was Hard to eat and The pork's really really too fat. At The end we paid 540ars$ for 2 enchilladas each, 2 Millers 600cl and 1 french fries with cheese: too much for The quality.

Just spent USD 40 on two beers, some nachos and a "quesadilla."

The beer was Belgian, as no Mexican beer was on offer

The "quesadillas" were in fact just tacos: not grilled, just folded

Only redeeming feature was the service: staff friendly and helpful
