“Again.. location is the only great thing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

for tourists is a cheap and clean option, but for me that live in the Bajio, this is not an option after having meals here for so many times when I didn´t live here and didn´t know of other restaurants. Now I prefer many other places in town. Service is decent, but food is average, meat and pastas below average. There are plenty of other places to eat and dine for the same price, with better food.

“very Mexican..i.e. friendly service and value..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

As previous reviewers have stated, they serve appetising food.. well priced.. in an airy well spaced restaurant area.. clean and in a good "watching" spot. And Dolores has an excellent Zocalo to look over.. and of course as pointed out; have an locally made ice cream from one of the vendors just across the way.

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

We very much enjoyed our lunch at the Restaurant Bar Plaza.
It is a very typical Mexican restaurant, which is a good thing, as it means great food and attentive service.

The comida corrida comes with a lovely little dessert, but you might want to save room for the ice cream sold by the vendors in the park across the street.

“A great meal with attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

We visited Dolores Hidalgo on a day trip from Guanajuato. We were very happy that we chose this restaurant for our one meal while there. I had the chicken mole which was very good and my wife had the vegetables a la plancha, which were probably the most flavorful vegetables we've ever had. We wished we'd asked more questions about the dish. The wait staff was fantastic. They were so attentive. At one point, a fork fell off our table. Before we could ask for another, a waiter who was across the room with his back to us, brought us a replacement. Amazing!

“Recommended Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

One of our Talavera suppliers from Dolores Hidalgo had recommended this spot back in 2009 but construction on the plaza prevented us from going. This trip we were down on the plaza around lunchtime, so we decided to try it.

It sits facing the main plaza and one can people watch while sitting at a table inside. Typical selection of your basic Mexican food and certainly adequate for lunch. A great place to take in the birthplace of the Mexican Revolution!
