Perea's Tijuana Bar and Restaurant first opened in 1936, and is still housed in the 300 year old torreon (sod, as opposed to adobe) building. The Perea family prepares their traditional New Mexico recipes that include green chile chicken casserole, stacked enchiladas, posole, homemade tortillas and tamales. The bar, named in the 1930s when Tijuana was considered exotic and upscale, has top shelf tequila and is known for its generous margaritas served in a tall glass and on the rocks. Prices are very reasonable � $8 to $10 for a huge plate � but bring cash as they don't accept credit cards. Also, the restaurant is only open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mon.-Sat., and closed Sundays. The only evening that the bar is open is Monday nights, depending on business. It's a little quirky, but a great taste of authentic New Mexico cuisine.
