Walking through the streets of Zacatecas, I saw a crowded restaurant "La Cantera Musical" so I asked several people and all agreed that it was a place that offers authentic Zacatecan food, and its specialty for more than 25 years is "The...

I visited here in the company of a work colleague during a business trip. I'm so glad I took his advice and recommendation - both for the venue and the meal. Seriously, have the Mulcajete Arrachera with tacos. It is not as spicy as you might think and the hot bowl it comes in is delightful. Ask for a spoon... More

A small, but authentic menu. Very friendly staff. Serves a decent wine (so my wife tells me). Good value for dinner.

We wanted to taste some local food and were recommended this place by lots of people, including the hotel manager. We went to try el Asado de Boda which is the specialty in Zacatecas. The food is very good and the attention is good also. We went after a long weekend so there were very few tourists and we had... More

I was recommended this place by my hotel when I asked for a good Mexican place nearby the sights. It is a stone's throw from the Cathedral, and so it is convenient. The fare is very Mexican, and decidedly Zacatecas-inspired. I only saw Mexicans while I was there, so I guess it is a good sign...

We met the chef right off and he was very nice.he suggested a couple of dishes and we were not disappointed. There was a singer playing a guitar playing singing beautiful songs. Back to the... More

Right across the street from the Hotel Reyna Soledad. Large restaurant in the lower level of the Mercado with simple but fine decor. Serves basic Mexican staples while Ranchero music videos playing on the TV. Good arranchera
