It's been around for years and years, which tells you just how good it is! It's my friend Adriana's very favorite, she always orders the pickled liver as an appetizer and the coyota for dessert

What a wonderful place to have a bit of nostalgia. The steak, the quesadilla, the guacamole and especially the beans were all wonderful little reminders of how mom used to cook. I had a great time enjoying a new restaurant I had never experienced before.We started it off with a great cabernet-Norte 32 and paired it with a parillada mixed... More

Had lunch here in late July 2016 with a friend who lives in TJ. He's been going here for years and was excited to introduce the restaurant to us. Not typical "American" beef, so don't expect a Texas style steak. Baja style of steak, with some great fried sides. If you are in the area, you will not go wrong... More

Fantastic steaks! One of the best meals I had in TJ. Even the outside of the building was looking good. A must stop if your in the neighborhood.

The first time, I was introduced to El Rodeo (ER) was when my girl friend (Now, My lovely wife, Amy) and her parents invited us in 1979. Since then, We make a bee line every chance we get to the ER. Over the years, our family, as the kids grew enjoyed the very rustic cowboy atmosphere. The outside as well... More

This place has been a clasic in Tijuana for many decades, and I am sorry to report that the steaks (which is why they were famouse) are not good anymore. The ambiance is great (old west style) the service is excellent and the complimentary appetizers and dessert are great but the main show (the steak) was very disapointing, very small... More

I'm guessing based on the age of my sons. We first went to El Rodeo in early 1976, when it was one of the few non-Chinese restaurants in Tijuana. The setting is Tombstone-like Sonoran-Arizonian something with wooden walls (and everything else). They have a few items to choose from, all of them grilled beef (Sonora-style, they say). Anything you ask... More

This restaurant is a tradition in Tijuana. Food is very good here. Their specialty is meat. You get a small grill at your table . And food usually comes with frijoles, a salad, a quesadilla and a coyota which is a mexican pastry from the state of Sonora. Mmmm. I have been here many times and have never left dissapointed....
