I visited Zacatecas for business. My local partner took to this place, as I told them that I wanted to experience the local/typical cuisine. I was not disappointed. Right from the start, as I tasted the fresh salsas with totopos, I knew I was in for a good culinary experience. I had "cabrito" for... read more

A bit off the centre of town, but close to the Fountain of the Conquistadors and Museo de Rafael Coronel, and in front of the Plazuela de García, this cozy restaurant serves great Mexican food in a very cozy atmosphere.

Since planning the trip to Zacatecas everyone we knew that had been here recommended we have dinner at this place. To begin with, you must make a reservation with plenty of days in advance - this just creates hype - and when you get there it's almost as if you must have a secrets code to get in - this... More

Our hotel had recommended this place and initially we went around 1 pm planning on lunch only to discover it only opens at 3 pm. So we returned that evening and had a delicious meal. We did not have a reservation but they managed to squeeze us in and I'm happy they did. The food was very good and the... More

Excellent food, service and ambiance. Small but well worth visiting. The piano man from this place could be at some of the best piano bar/restaurants anywhere. The menu has newspaper clips from the Panco Villa times with interesting accounts of his life and death. Very educating.

We were told that reservations were a must to gain seating. We called many times but never got through. We went to the restaurant and were seated anyway- a party of ten. The atmosphere is wonderful, the food and service were not. For the price you can get much better food in Zacatecas, and better service.

We went to this restaurant because of reviews but were disappointed. The quality of the food was only average compaired to inexpensive restaurants in Guadalajara or Mexico. For their pricing they should produce a finer meal. I tried one of their signature dishes Enchocolatada. I expected a mole type flavor but it was desert sweet chocolate. The other plate ,... More

The place offers good food but the service is terrible .Always there credit card service is out if order and the waiters never advice in advance .the host is agressive and with bad temper. If you are in Zacatecas visit the place but anticipate issues with their personnel.

Super place! Place on map is wrong, but a change request has been submitted. Enchilada heaven. Enchiladas Zacatecas must be tried here. You have to have a reservation as the door is closed until you confirm your reservation and they let you in. Since it does not open until 3:00, I do not see how they could serve breakfast.

A fantastic, out of the way restaurant that offers the best in local Zacatecana cuisine! You can't beat the price, the food is amazing, the atmosphere is fantastic, just an overall great restaurant! Note - make sure to make a reservation, the place is always packed full
