Caesar Salad

The salad's creation is generally attributed to restaurateur Caesar Cardini (an Italian-born Mexican). Cardini was living in San Diego but also working in Tijuana where he avoided the restrictions of Prohibition. As his daughter Rosa (1928–2003) reported, her father invented the dish when a Fourth of July 1924 rush depleted the kitchen's supplies. Cardini made do with what he had, adding the dramatic flair of the table-side tossing "by the chef".

At the Bisbee Grille we use crisp romaine lettuce with fresh Parmesan and herb-spiced croutons; which she then hand tosses with our signature Caesar dressing. For a few dollars more, you can add grilled or blackened fresh salmon to become our "Charley Caesar" salad.

The coffee we serve at both The Bisbee Grille and Santiagos is roasted at our own roaster every day and brewed on site.  We do not know of any restaurant that does this. If you would like to order your coffee beans whole or ground, you can shop at our website or call Roasting Room & Business Office:
Toll-Free Phone: 800-215-2611 / Local Phone: 520-432-7931
All coffee is roasted the day it will be shipped out,
which is usually within one business day of the time it was ordered.
(PLEASE NOTE: Roasting room is closed Saturday & Sunday)
