This tiny little place behind the cathedral is a must. Breakfast lunch or dinner it serves mexican and foreign food. At the base of an old house it uses old 60 and 70 radios as decor. Very nice place . Cash only.

Truco 7 has something to please everyone, well not so much for vegetarians or vegans who want fresh veggies or salads; canned veggies in the salad :( last time I order one. But you can find everything on the menu, for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night snacks and drinks. Truco 7 has expanded a lot in the past 20... More

On a day tour of Guanajuato from San Miguel de Allende, we stopped here for lunch and a beer. This is a great restaurant if you love real Mexican food at very reasonable prices. The place has wonderful atmosphere with antique furniture attracting mostly locals. No wonder there is always a line up for this place. Highly recommended!

I had the red chilaquiles for lunch, and my mom had the green ones. Both were great! The decoration reminded me of my grandma's old XIX Century house in Mexico. Our waiter was really nice and always had a smile on his face, even when my younger relatives were being little, obnoxious brats. Prices were reasonable and it's centrally located,... More

I can only give this place 3 stars, as my waiter just seemed like he didn't want me there. The food was good, and the service was quick, he just wasn't very friendly and didn't make my experience too special!

Awesome place to try the famous "enchiladas mineras", the place is a time capsule with all kinds of decorative stuff. This is one of the places you should visit while visiting Guanajuato!

Truco 7 is ideally located on a quiet street near the Jardin Union and the Teatro Juarez. The interior is eclectic with old radios perched on shelves on the walls. There is a wide variety of Mexican entrees on the menu. The chicken enchiladas verdes can't be beat - along with a Negro Modelo beer

This restaurant is a favorite with the U of Guanajuato students, so it not only has good food, it's VERY reasonably priced. Especially delicious hot chocolate, turkish coffee and any and all antojitos.
