We were there on 12-29-2016. The food was average. Main problem is that they overcharged us. After my husband objected to the bill, they corrected it and we paid the lower amount. However, I later discovered they had posted two charges to our credit card....More

The food was terrible. We were told there would be free nachos and free wine. This never happened. We waited 30 minutes for some cocktails. The worst part was they try to sneak in a 30% service charge.

We were in Aguascalientes during a blackout. We walked to the square and this was one of the few restaurants with a generator. We had average food. When it came to pay, they stated that they have a 20% tax. Given that we did not...More

Having not checked my trusty Trip Advisor (big mistake), and guided by our rumbling stomachs and achy legs, we happily walked into Tunqui, oblivious to the crappy food/service/prices we would receive. As someone else mentioned on here, the man outside falsely lures you in with...More
