The food in the Puerto Nuevo Restaurant is simply different. The lobster is unbelievable with the pintos beans, tortilla, and drink. I will be back soon. It's very different from what I was expecting.

Puerto Nuevo is a place you must stop and have lunch/dinner. The prices for the amount of food you are getting is amazing. Some places even include a margarita... This all runs on average $15. Not bad at all... My favorite part are the tortillas...

YUMMY!!! A long time favorite for many regulars servers who tend to remember former guest and their presences. A place you will want to remember and probably will remember you. Be smart and TIP to American high-end standards.

You will almost always be asked if you want your lobster Puerto Nuevo style. If you answer "yes" your lobster will be deep fried. While this is acceptable in Mexico, one never knows how old the oil is that is used for the deep frying....More

This is not true. But the new border is so much nicer and bigger now. I go there every other weekend, and the max wait time at the San Ysidro border have been between 30 - 45 minutes. They have vendors walking around... More
