If you like steak, try the Filet Mignon, wrapped in bacon, perfeclty cooked, with ample baked potato and crisp vegetables. We also enjoyed the Enchiladas Verde - -a large portion, I was unable to finish it, requiring a doggie-bag to give to a street person...More

This a large restaurant on the Zocolo with lots of outdoor seating. The food was decent, service was good, but it's over-priced. You can get just as good service and good food (and sometimes sit-down too) at one of the nearby street vendors.

You can get an excellent arachera steak here plus other good plates, good sandwiches and fruit plates, and iced coffees. It;'s consistent to very good as long as you don't ask for anything too complicated.
