This was my third trip to Gaunajaunto and my best meal so far. Yes the place is a little funky and a little dark but in a good way. I've read the other not so good reviews but we had a good experience. The service was fast, the beer cold and the plates came out so hot we had to... More

Our guide Helene Kahn (http://www.helenekahn.com/ - great guide by the way) brought us to Guanajuato for part of a day trip. For lunch she took us here - one of her favorite places. My Enmoladas was fabulous. I have had mole dishes quite a few times on this trip, all in San Miguel. They all have been good to very... More

I have been coming to Truco 7 for a few years. The food is usually good, and they used to have a very good Onion Soup. The last time I frequented this restaurant I had a terrible experience. When the onion soup came, it was basically colored water with no taste. I suspect they had run out of soup, and... More

Truco 7 is in the heart of downtown on a narrow walkway around the corner from the cathedral. You don't need to remember that, because it's not worth the bother finding it. It looks kind of funky and fun, but the food was awful. Tasteless enchiladas, a strawberry milkshake that was really a watery milk with strawberry powder and ice.... More

The store attached to Truco 7 is really about as eclectic, fun, funky, cool, and great as you get. I've been back twice browsing and bought a few things. But the restaurant itself wasn't up to par to much of anything. Every place is tiny in Guanajuato but this was just dark and tiny. Nothing special about it in my... More

Had been recommended by someone at our Hotel, so we gave it a try for lunch. Ambiance is very nice, Mexican cantina like. The menu was pretty extensive, but clearly catered to folks from North America. The food was OK, but there are many better choices for restaurants close by so f you are looking for a true Mexican style... More

Long time that I hadn't been at Truco and today I decided to try it. Bad decision. We ordered the day menu. Consome was good, but the rest of the food was cold and full on fat. Something so simple as a enchilada was pretty bad: cold and no flavor, same for the meat. Waiter was slow and moody. He... More

Had a great experience here with family and friends. Pleasant cafe food and full meals- not gourmet, but very friendly, energetic youthful, upbeat atmosphere. Ate here several times with family and friends-

With great urging I was sent to this restaurant twice... Very crowded on the weekend so I waited for a weekday. I would say food was ok but average. I had chicken mole. Flavor was good but portion small. First Mexican restaurant I've ever been to where I had to ask for salsa and tortillas! They brought bread with the... More

I feel like an outlier because all of the reviews for Truco 7 seem to be quite positive, but I wasn't impressed. The value was OK, but my dining experience wasn't. My food was lukewarm and subpar (I had the enchiladas) and the service staff looked like there was a hundred places they'd rather be. Perhaps they were just having... More
