This place is all about Tom Petty, Johnny Cash and gussied-up Tijuana street food. Pictures of those namesake artists, a colorful dining room and great playlist also make this a fun place to dig into contemporary Mexican fare, with an eye on the humble taco. Plus, the tequila and mezcal selections are second to none.
The menu opens with shareable starters, like the gringa-style quesadilla with chili-rubbed smoked pork shoulder and jack cheese pressed between flour tortillas and drizzled with avocado crema. Don’t forget to try the Baja fish tacos, filled with Negra Modelo beer-battered rockfish, crema, cabbage and pico de gallo. Their tacos, folded with house-made blue corn tortillas, may be a few dollars extra but are absolutely worth it.
