Just one of those places you fall in love with. What everyone says is true... every time I've been there, I've run into friends. Some come for the atmosphere, some for the drinks, some for the food. This is near some good surfing, and visiting surfers as well as local foreign residents love is. Like a lot of places with 'character' Jaime just seems to have a knack for adding what ever occurs to him... and it works. No one will call it elegant, but it is fun.

They start you out with a tray of chips, limes and three kinds of salsa. You will love the fresh cream and chipotle dip... so addictive you will text your friends about it!

Keep your eyes peeled when you are near the Jesus Saviour statue around the K38 surf area. Charly's is on the free road, and on busy nights, you may have to sniff out a parking space, but you'll find one!

Go. Enjoy. Repeat.

If you like chorizo and huevos rancheros, this is the place! For lunch, I had the fish tacos, best white fish! Jaime and staff, super nice. This
summer, walking distance for us to Charly's Place, great spot.

Jaime took over Charley's Place about two years ago, and has completely changed the menu and the atmosphere. The food is excellent, and a good value; the people and the service are outstanding. The menu is limited: tacos (chicken, fish, shrimp, beef); burritos (same selection); fish dinners, with a whole fish; shrimp kebabs, which are to die for; standard breakfast items; full bar. However, everything is fresh, prepared right in front of you, and everything is good.

Jaime has free wifi and Magic Jack, so if you need to contact the U.S., you can. On Saturday evening, there is live music and dancing starting at 7:00 pm.

If you are staying close to the restaurant, Jaime even delivers.

You'll only be "new" once; after that, you're part of the family.

Charly's Place is Baja's well kept secret. One of a kind salsas and most definitely the very best sea food in the Rosarito area. My favorite...fish tacos with garlic sauce. Cozy ambiance, great service, and always a friendly welcome, especially by Jaime!

This place has been in business for many years - -Don't miss it on the free road going south of Rosarito a few miles... The owner is usually there and makes sure everything is taken care of, the tacos are great here.
