Best hotels for an overnight?

Hotel Caesar: Revolution & 4th
Hotel Nelson: Rev & 2nd

Register as two guests (you and the lady).

Hotel Coahuila and Hotel Manhattan sometimes have overnight rooms available. Both are on Calle Coahuila west of Constitucion and west of Heros Ninas.

Las Cascadas, located west of Adelita Bar above Chevelas. Around $20-$30+ a night, depending on the room. Air conditioned rooms with TV. If you want IN THE ZONE, then this place is it.

Rooms aren't great, but if you're just looking for a place to crash after you get drunk, it's not bad. Has cable TV w/porn and bathroom. The bed has only one or two sheets, so you're gonna have to sleep on top of them unless you want to take your chances sleeping on that mattress.

For something less expensive, try Hotel Leyva next to the Chicago Club ($15-$25+). The benefit is that most girls at Chicago Club will go next door for the night without a problem. They're less apt to leave the Zona if they don't know you well.

Try to get a room on the third or fourth level, as they are carpeted and a bit nicer. The first and second levels have non-carpeted rooms with bad plumbing. Parking is free.

There are nicer hotels like the Grand or Pueblo Amigo but they're a taxi ride away.

La Villa Zaragosa is not exactly in the zone, but it's a nice clean place. It's about a mile from the action. Personally, I prefer to sleep outside of the zone.

Rizo de Oro, above Tropical, is kinda crappy, but OK if Cascadas or Leyva are full. It too has TV with porn.

Best Value Tijuana Restaurants?

El Taurino Steakhouse
7957 6th. Street between Niños Héroes & Miguel F. Martínez

Good steaks, decent prices. My buddy and I both ordered the house special, which is called "La Cabreria." You get a one-pound slab of steak cooked just the way you like it. Ours came with a barbecued chicken leg, beans, corn tortillas, salad, soup, fried onions, salsa, and hot peppers. Cost: 13 bucks.

I couldn't finish mine, but my buddy snarfed all of his down, side dishes and all. If you have a wimpier appetite, like me, then go for the "Half Cabereria" ($9.50).

Sanchez Tabodoa No. 10132. Cross street: Diego Rivera, across the street from the courthouse

Serves good and inexpensive Japanese food, particularly sushi.

Best taco stands in TJ?

"I like the stand where Rev bends east next to the gas station. Tons of locals eat here and the torts are hand made fresh. It's across the street from the car dealership (on the south end of Rev) going deeper into TJ."

"Try the place directly across the street from Chicago Club. There are two side by side. Go to the one on the left. It rules. They cook the carne asada over charcoal and flames which makes the meat much tastier than the other taco stands, and at only 6 pesos per taco, its a better deal than the stands. Trust me -- they are incredible."

"The white van outside of Chavelas has the best tacos I have yet tasted, better than the ones outside of AB. Try them, you will not be unhappy."
