There are a lot of places that sell this type of torta, But this is one of the best, the size and the portion of the torta is good, and the price is fair.

I´m not giving it a lot of points because the place is not that "nice". It would be the equivalent of the best hot dog stand in new york. The specialty is the TORTA DE LOMO its a beek, avocato, lettuce, tomato and special sauce (not spicy or hot) that you must taste. I´m from Tijuana and I go a... More

Their specialty are tortas de lomo which is a great selection choice if you want something other than a torta de carne asada. They also make French fries which are good for Tijuana. It's a street side eatery but their is a nice park across the street where you can have your torta lunch.

So glad Tortas El Turco is back in business. After several years on hiatus, these iconic tortas, known and loved by all long-time Tijuana residents, are back.

I love this place they only sell tortas and French fries. Not only are the tortas delicious but the fries are awesome. I recommend this to people who want great food without having a complicated menu.
