Lots of people stop here, no wonder. The barbacoa (lamb meat slowly cooked in banana leaves) is amazing. We had tacos and also the consome which is made of the juices of the cooked meat. Plus it's ideally located, 1.5 - 2 hours our of Mexico city, great for a 1st stop!

My family took me here during my Birthday early last year ... This place is mega-famous among locals in and around the Central Mexico area. Barbacoa is a Saturday/Sunday morning favorite and can be found at stands along the highways and in most neighborhoods in Mexico City ... however this is very famous. You need to keep your eye out...

This is a must highway stop on you way to Queretaro, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato...... The "Barbacoa" is delicious, which is why the restaurant is famous for. The quesadillas and other typical Mexican dishes were also very tasty. The place was very clean.
