It's a perfect place in order to taste local authentic cuisine. Tacos are offered as an entrant (which are great). Then, the "tortillas de maíz" are always a safe option:)

One of the places you must visit, here you can find many kind of different plates that are common in the area, even those plates that are only available in a specific months of the year. It's a good option to enjoy traditional food.

Guacamole was soulless. Turkey was bland and dry. Did like the chips and fresh made tortillas but beyond that there was little to like. Not recommended for non meat eaters.
