Looking for a great meal in Tijuana

Hi,
I'm spending this weekend in San Diego with a friend who's never dipped down into Mexico before. Does anyone have a great recommendation for a meal in TJ (or somewhere else in Mexico within a quick drive from SD).

Thanks!

    La Differencia, I had an amazing lunch there. A lady hound read a NYT article on it, and we planned a day around lonche there.

        La Querencia should be considered for you Tijuana meal destination.

          I've had good meals at La Diferencia but would try La Querencia given reviews

            Depends on what you're looking for. I wouldn't recommend La Diferencia. It's way overrated and overpriced, though it is a nice place to have some drinks after your meal. There is a place called Chiki Jai... THAT I recommend. Also some Mexican seafood might be nice, there are some places you might want to take a visit.

              La Fonda Roberto's for some of the best Mexican food in the city.
