Reviewed 25 February 2014

We were about DONE walking around Tijuana - it was a cold miserable day and our cab driver dropped us at some dirty seafood place that he recommended. We took one look at the menu and knew it was not for us. The waiter recommended Tijuana Tilly's so we set out and walked for 30 minutes to get to it. WE LOVED IT! The chips were a bit greasy for our taste, but the salsa was the best we've ever had. We ordered the shrimp taco plate (with flour instead of corn tortillas) and the steak/rice/beans plate and we ate every bite. Service was good, waiter was attentive, food was hot and fresh, and the place was clean. I would highly recommend this restaurant for drinks, appetizers, or dinner. Our bill for two entrees plus tip (just water to drink) was $41 USD which was a little more than we expected, but we felt it was worth it. The only thing to keep in mind is that you really need to feel comfortable with asking for what you need - more salsa, napkins, the tab, etc. because many foreign places find it rude to bother you while you dine. So don't be shy - if you need it, ask for it. Lastly, if you are running into TJ to grab prescriptions or tequila, this place is a $4 cab ride into downtown from the border and everyone speaks English (as is the menu in English) - but well worth it. Also very close to a local grocery store that sells food/beverages for a fraction of what you will pay at the convenient stores or liquor stores.

Stopped in one early evening & ordered some appetizers, drinks, and shared an entre. Everything was fine. Food was fine, Service, fine. Drinks and bar specials were fine. Prices were average for and average class of restaurant. English was spoken, so the place is tourist-friendly and caters to a mix of locals and Gringos. There was nothing particularly negative about our experience, but nothing stood out to make us look forward to returning, either. The place is best for people not looking to take risks in their dining experiences and who are looking for a quick & easy Mexican meal.

If your doing a self serve walking tour of Tijuana, this is a great place to stop for a break from the hustling salespeople and long walking. Always had a nice lunch here. They used to mainly cater to foreign tourists but now have wised up and started to not take locals for granted. By locals, I mean the local mexican population. Starting to see more come here, and the own explains they struggled mightily when the tourists visits dried up but they stopped taking the locals for granted and that seems to have saved them from similar demise of the many other businesses that now closed on Avenida Revolucion.
