    Caesar's Restaurant!: Legendary Home to the Caesar Salad!

    Caesar's Restaurant

    Hollywood has the Brown Derby and Tijuana has Caesar's! This restaurant became popular by catering to all the rich, beautiful and famous people who traveled south from L.A. for a drink or the races at Caliente. Hotel Caesar and Caesar's Restaurant were the places to go to avoid the press and Prohibition. This restaurant has survived and so has it's legends.

    Update:

    Caesar's Restaurant and Hotel have been renovated by the Placencia family of Tijuana almost two years ago. It seems that they have done a wonderful job turning back the 80 years Caesar's has been around to recapture the glamourous days of this mecca for Hollywood stars. In the process they have also succeeded in changing Caesar's into the number one restaurant in Tijuana.

    Hopefully this is just the beginning of revitalization for the town.

    Favorite Dish: Why not try a Caesar Salad? The debate rages whether or not this famed salad originated here. I believe it did.

    Caesar's Restaurant is the home to the creation of the Caesar Salad. The former owner Caesar Cardini allegedly invented this salad in 1924. Whether he did or it was one of his staff and he took the credit, I've eaten it and it is one of the best I've ever had.

    Favorite Dish: I've only had the salad, thus far, but I'll be back to try a few dishes.

    Ceasars Resturant and Bar: Where Ceaser Salads were invented!

    by Travel2write Written May 13, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The creation of Caesar's Salad has been attributed to an Italian, Caesar Cardini, who at the time was a restaurateur in Tijuana, Mexico. According to records, supplies in the Cardini establishment ran short one holiday weekend in 1924. Caesar experimented and that evening the Caesar's Salad was born. "Take everything to the table" he said, "and make a ceremony of fixing the salad". Let guests think they're having the specialty of the house". Later, it was voted " the greatest recipe to originate from the Americas in fifty years" by the International Society of Epicures in Paris*.

    Favorite Dish: This is the spot where the Ceasar Salad was invented. One of my favorite places to dine or have a beer on Avenida Revolucion. When you want a break from the hustle and bustle and some mellow music, check out Ceasers
