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.

Located around the corner of the Teatro, it's a great restaurant for real Mexican food and antique lovers. Great ambience and mostly filled with locals. Three of us chose the daily menu for 68 pesos each (soup, rice/pasta, entree, and a bottle of beer) and we were very satisfied. No wonder there is always a line up for this place.... More

I loved this place, and it was my normal breakfast spot for the time I spent in Guanajuato. The expresso is fantastic!

When we got in it looked kind of nice but looking closer we felt as it was dirty. The food was cold. I really didn't enjoy my visit. I had it better.
