Good Eats at La Estancia, Rosarito

We had a late lunch/early dinner at La Estancia in Rosarito.
The restaurant was busy with locals; family groups and professionals in business dress.
As usual, we were greeted warmly and service was prompt.
The Growling Gabacho ordered his favorite rib eye steak and I had the mesquite grilled salmon fillet, which was cooked medium rare with crisp skin, as requested,
Also, we had the house special appetizer; queso fundido with mushrooms and a mild red dried chile. It was so good that I threatened to lick the plate. When I asked the manager what kind of cheese they use, he brought out a wheel, labeled "Alphorn Monterey, Wisconsin" (Small embarrassment here, I was expecting a Mexican made product.)
I don't know what the total was, but my salmon entree was $12.00; a 10-12 oz filet, (can I say "leftovers"?), with tortilla soup, salad, and a baked potato.
Now, some minor glitches. The baked potatoes were served cold. The server eagerly offered to correct the problem, but the replacements were also cold. No matter, we just packed them into the take home box, to enjoy later.
