Hank's has surprisingly good food for a very popular bar/restaurant hot spot for both locals and Americans. We've had dinner here twice with groups of 4 & 6, once early and once late (before and after concerts) and thus have ordered only drinks and shared appetizers. The food and service both times was excellent and the waiters were not upset... More

Not my kind of place today, but who knows? Maybe tomorrow it'll be just right. If I feel like sitting at a noisy bar, getting drunk, and singing with Gringos (mostly) while I'm stuffing my face with sliders, then this is the place. And the dining room (much the same) is a reliable pit stop if you're in Centro and... More

We really enjoyed the food here. I ordered the Arrucherra which was perfect. The service was fabulous.

For those who complained about the noise level, perhaps you chose to sit in the bar area, which obviously, would be noisier? We've eaten at Hank's 4 times in the past 5 weeks and have never had an issue with noise. We've always been seated in the dining room facing the street, always between the hours of 2pm-5pm, and have... More

I've been here many times over the past eight years. The food, drinks and service are always reliably good. Sunday brunch is particularly worthwhile. Don't go if you don't like loud rock & roll.

This crowded, noisey restaurant is a disappointment. If only there was a time of day, some quiet time could be found we would return. After several attempts to return, same old loud atmosphere. Sad.

So, not quite the New Orleans experience, but there was a lot of color here. Some cool jazz playing somewhere in the bar. It was loud enough where you could visualize a live band plugging away. The waiter kept on bringing us martini's. Didn't realize Wednesday's were two-for-one, ha ha!! The place was packed. Did not eat food. The waiters... More

If you didn't know better you would think you were in New Orleas! Well...maybe. Very friendly staff, lively groups, excellent margaritas (happy hour too) and hamburgers/onion rings. The menu looks great...

Hank's is the new name of the famous Harry's Restaurant with 12 years of history in Mexico, since 1999 in San Miguel Allende and since 2004 in Queretaro. Hank's is a bit of Louisiana and its "French Quarter", which offers the traditional Cajun cuisine from New Orleans. The atmosphere at Hank's is incomparable, you can enjoy a delicious dinner or spend a pleasant evening in the bar, drinking a margarita, a martini or a devastating hurricane while listening to jazz music.
