I don't recommend this restaurant. To begin with the waitress Vidal gave us a horrible service. He forgot our orders such as the tortillas and ketchup etc and the food was nasty!

Wonderful guacamole and chicken mole! First real meal while in Mexico and I couldn't have been happier! Chicken mole with rice. The sauce was delicious. They made salsa right at the table. My co-worker had the chicken tortilla soup and she said it was great. I would highly recommend!

Really authentic Mexican looking restaurant. Really really good service. I didn't really like my lamb ribs but everybody else's dinners were good. Huge playroom for the children. The food was fairly priced with the tequila a bit expensive.

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...
