With out a reservation they are rude!!!! When we first arrived we were seated and didn't receive a menu until we asked which was like 20 minutes later. To receive the food it took another 20-25 min and the food was cold! We didn't leave a tip. The waiter was rude & hated the service. Food didnt have flavor. If you dont have a reservation stay away! They sit you on the plain ugly side with horrible service not worth it.

This place is good for good quality traditional Mexican food. The ambience is classic Mexican, and the booths are quite comfortable. The fare is exactly what you would expect at a restaurant frequented by middle class locals. The only problem is the service. I do not know if this is an attitude about serving gringos or just the general lack of effective staff managment, but, in several trips, I have been largely ignored and left to fend for myself while surrounging tables seemed to receive significantly better service. No, I am not paranoid, but I do feel this needs to be addressed by the restaurant's management.

I come to Tijuana very often and I've eaten at various restaurants and I must say that La Espadaña is the best one so far. The pricing is perfect even for a college student like me! My favorite thing to order are the enchiladas rojas. They are to die! If you live in the states any Mexican restaurant here tastes so artificial, but La Espadaña does not!! Mexican comfort food at its best!
