Bato does not offer much for food. Seems we hit it during the slow season. We ate here twice and the prices are an honest value. The food is amazing. All of the regular players are on offer, burritos, bistec ranchero, eggs. Very tasty food going on here.

There are not a lot of choices of places to eat in Batopilas but Doña Molca's is. in our opinion, the best. She prepares each dish for you personally which means you have to count on taking your time-- there is not a lot to do in town anyway... This is one of the only home style places in Mexico... More
