My guilty secret

I love Mexican food and enjoy exploring regional cuisine. But occasionally, when my taste buds are tired of novelty, I slip into a Sanborn's. They all have the same menu, friendly, costumed servers, a colonial ambience, and consistently good, if not particularly imaginative food, Mexican comfort... read more

You can spend several hours here shopping and then have a very nice lunch or dinner. It made me think of photos I've seen of upscale department stores found in New York in the 1950s.

Without doubt the worst place i have visited in Zacatecas.If you do find yourself here do not order a steak.$200 pesos for a few French fries and an overcooked chop that was advertised as a fillet mignot.There are far better places to eat in Zacatecas at a fraction of the price

After a hard afternoon of sightseeing, this is the perfect place for a cup of coffee and a cake. Get a table by the window and watch the world go by.

Sanborns is traditional within Mexico, but the Zacatecas restaurant is just like any other in the country. Food is acceptable, prices are high. At least the staff is friendly.

Always enjoy a meal at Sanborns while in Mexico. Especially enjoy the chicken enchiladas in mole sauce.

I love Sanborns. I always have. So my experience here was odd. My wife and I visited Zacatecas November 6-9, 2011, and we stayed at the nearby Hotel Terrasse. On November 7 my wife got sick and stayed in bed, so I decided to go to Sanborns and bring us back dinner. The staff was professional and efficient. While I... More
