We took friends visiting from Spain who had dined at other Sanborn's in Mexico. They thought this was the worst one they had ever been to. The service was S--L--O--W and they didn't have everything on the menu. The restaurant itself was pleasant, but we...More

In the center of Tijuana, among shops the cafe of Sanborns is located. The cafe is good. The personnel are polite. We have ordered chicken soup there. Soup was very tasty. I have written a response in the book of cafe. Good ratio price quality.

Yes at one time just about every Sanborns sits on what used to be a Denny's! However with a Mexican flare of cafeteria food. The enchiladas and chilaquiles are bland and so lifeless. I pass on Breakfast there.

Sanborn's is delightful, and I start each visit there right after checking in, usually to Hotel Ticuan. The servers wear traditional Mexican dresses, and the atmosphere is clean and genuine. Only the menus in Spanish have the prices. There is a very nice buffet available,...More

Whenever I go across the border, I love going to Sanborn's. Their food is a good sample of Mexican cuisine perhaps not with all the extravaganza yet it's flavorful! However , the best part is not only this but it's that along with this you...More
