Description: Hank's is the new name of the famous Harry's Restaurant with 12 years of history in Mexico, since 1999 in San Miguel Allende and since 2004 in Queretaro. Hank's is a bit of Louisiana and its "French Quarter", which offers the traditional Cajun cuisine from New Orleans. The atmosphere at Hank's is incomparable, you can enjoy a delicious dinner or spend a pleasant evening in the bar, drinking a margarita, a martini or a devastating hurricane while listening to jazz music.

The Barman Alonso was completely dishonest. Started offering a 2 x 1 promotion and offered a friend of mine a courtesy drink for her birthday, when the bill came he charged all drinks. I had to tell him to stop serving drinks as he was just bringing them without us asking and saying they were “from the house”. We order... More

Come for drinks pass the food up!!! I agree with the last few posters the food here is scary. The "arrachera" was so tough you need a chain saw to cut this piece of leather! Not good!! The rice was old & super dry...gross! The mgr. acknowledged the steak was tough & that the rice was not good. He had... More

Steak was tender however totally swimming in a sauce which left the meat tasteless. Ieberg blue cheese salad spoiled by some sort of vinegar. I felt seriously overpriced for what it was

Hank's is located right on one of the main roads and is very close to a 24-hour parking lot (20 pesos per hour, Insurgentes). We went there because it was packed and had a great atmosphere. It was very loud and lively inside. The entrees themselves were not edible and our bill was nearly 1000 pesos for two people with... More

We always have a meal at Hank's when visiting San Miguel de Allende. The menu is large and quite Americanized. We dined there with our party of 6. Four of us enjoyed the gumbo and fried shrimp. The gumbo was a bit over-salted, but otherwise tasty. The shrimp were large and perfectly cooked. The portions were plentiful. We all enjoyed... More

I reviewed this cool restaurant and bar back in 2009 and revisited recently. Hey it remains one of my favorite SMA spots. The bar may very well be the best drinking spot in the city. Very busy and efficient with many hard to find whiskeys and tequilas lining the wall. This time we had dinner there and were not disappointed.... More

From the comments of other reviews, Hanks is the most happening bar in San Miguel de Allende. Just not our kind of place. Loud, loaded with older expats. Enormous margaritas 2x1, but terrible tequila -- the kind that knocks you out and leaves you with a headache. Mediocre appetizers. With so many wonderful eating and happy hour options in San...

Our hotel in Guadalajara recommended this place as Harry's (apparently the name has since changed to Hank's). The BLT with Salmon was excellent as was the Fish sandwich. Both came with onion rings that were so good we didn't need anything to dip them into. The service was attentive and friendly. Margaritas were very good and not overpriced.

Super friendly patrons at the bar. Don't be surprised if someone who doesn't speak your language still offers you a Mexican Flag - lime juice, Tequila, and tomato juice. You'll need to reciprocate of course. Be careful when you finally stand up.... The atmosphere is fun, with original paintings on the walls (of course just about all the restaurants and... More
