Firstly I found the prices to be higher than what is in order for a place in this spectrum but very quickly I looked past that and enjoyed the decor, efficient service, complimentary drink and well prepared starters and main course. It's quite authentic as far as the cuisine goes, has place for large groups but is more suited to smaller groups and couples. Bar has decent selection. Well located with the possibility of outdoor seating on warm days. I would love to go back just for the fajitas there.

I cannot recommend the place. Food has no flavor and taste like it has been done hours ago and is only warmed up. There are definitaly better Mexican restaurants in Palermo around the corner.

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.
