We absolutely love this place. Freshly made chips and very flavorful salsa. My wife loves the caldo camarone and shrimp fajitas. I love camarones a la Diablo Fiery jo2t, but oh so good.

We turned up at about 8:30pm, and the kitchen was closing, but they kindly took our order, and brought out a great dinner for the 4 of us. We were made very welcome, and would be pleased to eat there again.

Consistently some of the best Mexican food anywhere can be found at Tlaquepaque. It is a real treat to go there and start with a Chavela (beer with lemon juice and a salted rim margarita glass) or a Super Chavela (add a shot of tequila)....More
