Ojinaga was founded around the year 1200 by Pueblo Indians. In 1535 it was visited by Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca with a party of four, the survivors of the 1528 shipwreck of a failed mission to explore Florida. It was later the site of the Battle of Ojinaga, as Pancho Villa was being chased all over the region during the Mexican Revolution.
La Poblana, Calle Juarez, in front of Fausto's Gallery. Home-style Mexican cooking popular with the working class.
Los Comales, Calle Zaragoza, a block off the main square. Surprisingly good seafood, given the city's location.
Sanborn's, 453 1224. A favorite with locals of Ojinaga and Presidio. Try the chile verde con carne. No credit cards accepted.
Tortas Raúl, 453 1544. Mexican sandwiches, burritos, and other light meals. Good for lunch.
Al Super, Trasvina Street (west from the bridge on Libre Comercio, then north on Trasvina. Will be on east side of the street). Al Super is a modern chain supermarket with a great selection of items. When staying in and around Presidio/Ojinaga, it is a great go-to stop for meat, produce, snacks, medicine, and the like. They've got a great selection of alcoholic beverages, which can be had for much cheaper than on the US side. Beware of export/import restrictions, however!edit
