Caesar Salad (in San Diego)

So San Diego's favorite fish monger asked for suggestions about this today on Facebook and got a variety of answers. My favorite is the authentic experience at Caesar's in Tijuana, but that doesn't fit the description of "in San Diego". I offered the suggestion of Romesco's since Javier Plascencia's family now owns Caesar's. I think the salad at both of these places is as good as the server that makes it, and they all have a heavy or lighter hand with certain ingredients. What is your fav place in our city for this somewhat local specialty?
p.s. FN - local, upscale, Mexican restaurants that only offer it as a rare Chef's special do not count. ;)
Besides Romesco's, Whiskenlade and Prep Kitchen put out a darn good caeasar salad...and the owner is also from Mexico.
Table side Caesar at the Marine Room is quite good...wish Chef B. would get it together on the dinner menu..weird pairings..IMO, don't work.
Baci's is lovely and Manhattan's of La Jolla too.
Concur that the Caesar at the beloved hotel in TJ is fab...if you're in Cabo, the best I've had was table side at Romeo y Julieta's..sublime.
had a caesar at Blue Ribbon Pizza in Encinitas last night...though not the original Mexican version, I thought it was quite good (no anchovies).
