Leaving BJX aiport towards Leon on highway 45, well marked restaurant with valet parking. Mexican food cooked a las brasas (over coals/embers). Delighted to find grilled vegetables. We were surprised at the size of the portion. Carrots, zucchini, eggplant, peppers and mushrooms. The menu offers several pastas, beef, goat and chicken, Tasty desserts too.

Prime location around the malls selling leather goods. We went for lunch. They serve authentic and delicious Mexican food. Their drinks menu displays a wide range of cocktails though they don't always have them all. We found one of the waiters who could understand and communicate in English, which was definitely helpful. The best part of our lunch was when... More

We dined at El Braserio for lunch during a business trip. Overall the food was excellent and we all enjoyed our meals. But I have to make special note of the salsa that was made right at our table. It was fantastic! We requested medium heat with a variety of pepper flavors and the lady who made it was spot... More

Mexican dining is a challenge for vegans but this restaurant whipped up some grilled vegetables in no time. The friendly English speaking waiter made all the difference. Sit near the window to minimize the fill blown Mariachi experience!

Came here for lunch. Honestly Los Arcos is better and located in the same strip mall. Food took forever. My wife ordered Alfredo it seem like milk and noodles. Alfredo is fettuccine not spaghetti

This is one of my favorite's restaurant, in Leon, it's inevitable to enjoy the environment, the hospitality of all the staff, the prices are very affordable and a plus of this place is the "Lady Salsa" hahaha there's a Lady who prepares salsa in front of you, with fresh ingredients of the day, the colors, the smell, the experience to...

We went for a little walk to get lunch while waiting for our hotel room to be ready, and we decided this place looked interesting. It wasn't very busy when we were there, but it was probably about 2pm on a weekday, during the rainy season. Our waiter was super super friendly and accommodating. We kind of walked into this...

Went there for a business dinner. My host said it was an authentic Mexican restaurant. It was a rainy night, but though there is an openness of the restaurant, we still were able to dine (and watch Mexico - Panama in Oro Copa). The high ceilings and archways showed a lot of character and made an excellent atmosphere. The heavy... More

The food here is very good and the atmosphere feels genuine. My biggest complaint was the Mariachi band. Even though they were several tables away, they were way too loud for my tastes, making it difficult to have a conversation with my friend. However, the food was pretty wonderful, they start you off with chips and extras, then a lady... More

We passed this place on the way back from Plaza del Zapatos, a stone's throw away. I'd passed it several times before with the intention of going. The timing was right and we went in, there was a live mariachi band and the place was nearly full. In fact it looks like a typical Mexican restaurant in the states, and... More
