Bienvenidos a El Cruce +241!

We are the first and only wholly devoted Baja tap-room, wine bar and kitchen committed to sourcing auténtico Baja specialties in San Diego’s South County. Our historic 4,000 square-foot bi-level space is a welcoming reprieve with a herringbone brick-flanked bar and comfortable surroundings to make you feel right at home. Come savor south-of-the-border “coastal cuisine at its best” in the heart of Chula Vista’s Third Avenue  Village!

Our menu concept uses only the freshest Baja ingredients available and was developed by acclaimed Ensenada-based chef Sano Hussong, who is muy famoso for his Sano’s Steakhouse and Humo & Sal restaurants. Executive chef, Charleen Sandoval is at the helm of the kitchen bringing the thoughtfully curated dishes and flavors to life.

Our dedication to sourcing Baja’s finest extends to our beer program, which offers 30 taps on draft including 18-oz. imperial pints from Baja-based craft breweries, such as Tijuana’s Insurgente, and Ensenada brewers Cervecería Transpeninsular and Wendlandt. We also proudly offer a curated list of wines from the Valle de Guadalupe, like Corona del Valle, Cava Maciel, Lechuza, plus an exclusive selection of wines that have never before been offered in the United States. Want to take your libations to-go? We sell beer crowlers and wines by the bottle. Salud!

At El Cruce +241 we’ve gathered the unique flavors of Baja together under one roof.
Come enjoy a taste experience that has literally crossed the border!
