The best tip for eating lunch in a new city when traveling anywhere in the world is to find the hole-in-the wall spot where the locals eat. You know the place – it’s low on atmosphere but the locals are lining up out the door, the food is delicious and the prices can’t be beat.
While I wouldn’t exactly call massive blue tents on the side of the freeway a hole-in-the-wall location, Tito’s is that gem of a local’s spot that I am thankful I discovered. The place is always teeming with people, the food is fresh and fast and the value is incredible. Anywhere I can pop in for lunch to get two huge, tasty tacos and a Diet Coke for under $3 is automatically a place that I love.
The fish tacos are 10 pesos. That’s under $1 and I have never seen larger fish tacos anywhere. Sometimes you have to remove pieces of fish from the taco in order to even take a bite. One taco is probably a full meal for many people. They have other seafood items on the menu, but to be honest, I never stray from the tacos since they’re so scrumptious.
There are locations in Tijuana and Playas de Tijuana as well as my hometown location in Rosarito.
