Visited this place for dinner and while the place is very appealing unfortunately that’s where I thought the wow factor it stopped. The service was poor since none of the staff spoke anything but Spanish which made it challenging to read the menu or order....More

This restaurant was just average for us. It had a corporate, chain-restaurant feel to it. It was largely empty when we arrived for dinner on a weekday evening, but the hostess initally sat us at the most undesirable table possible, right behind the hostess stand...More

At El Bajío we try to make art and culture being noticed and enjoyed by eating the magnificence of traditional Mexican cuisine. We provide a space in which the most diverse dishes of the traditional Mexican cuisine coexist, starting with the delicacies of Carmen "Titita’s" homeland of Veracruz such as the anise gorditas, the filet of fish Veracruz-style and the papantecos tamales, as well as typical dishes of northern Mexico, including the pride of the house: carnitas Michoacán-style, as well as other delicacies from Yucatán, Puebla and Oaxaca, to mention a few others.
