We went to San Augustin Chocolates & Churros for a snack of the famous hot chocolate and churros. It was very crowded but we were seated immediately. The tables are extremely close together. The staff was quite busy and I don't think that our server ever looked at us as he quickly took our order. We were also served quickly... More

Took us ages to find a line short enough and organized enough to join! Friday and Saturday nights are hopeless! Arriving before main meal times is key. We stuck with hot chocolate and churros. My Spanish hot chocolate finally hit the memory to hot chocolate drunk in Spain 40 years ago!! So glad we didn't get in earlier in our... More

What an awesome place to get churros, despite the long wait! They've a separate line for takeouts, so that helps. The restaurant has lots of movie posters, dolls and other knickknacks, which by themselves are a feast for the eyes. Looks like the place is good for breakfast as well, but I didn't get to experience that.

We were in San Miguel for 5 days and this place always had a line. The lunch was by far the worst we had in SM with mediocre enchiladas, soup, and service. The churros were good, but you can get them to go. With so many great food options, I wouldn't waste another meal here.

Apparently this place is very popular and boasts a great reputation for good churros but in our opinion they are not. The wait is long for undercooked and and under portioned churros. The French style hot chocolate was good. I would not go back

We were lucky to get seated right away at this very popular churro a place facing the church of San Francisco. There was no line as there was a flash flood! But we were thankful for the comfort of churros and chocolate! Yum!

There's always a line out the door here after dinner, even just to buy churros and chocolate to go. We personally loved the thicker, less sweet Spain-style hot chocolate, but several types are offered. The churros are excellent, and many types are served. Definitely a San Miguel institution which you must pay homage to!

When you see people lining up, it's a sign that the place must be good. And we are so right. This is Churros Heaven! Order your churros with their traditional Mexican Chocolate drink and you taste Mexico in your mouth!

So this is where the visiting Mexicans eat their breakfast. As gringos we were by far the minority. This is a very small restaurant and it was absolutely packed yesterday morning. We were there around 10:30 AM. I ordered cheese enchiladas with mole and absolutely loved them, even though it was breakfast. Their dark sauce was great. Not the best... More

We had breakfast as well as hot chocolate and churros. The food was ok and the churros were fresh. The service was slow and inattentive. Long lines and too much to wait for. Quite overrated. There are much better places in town.
