Recommended restaurants near the EXPO center

We are going to Guadalajara for the International Book Fair in the EXPO Center in December. Can someone recommend some good and inexpensive restaurants in that area? How much would a taxi ride to Tlaquepaque cost?

A taxi will cost between 100 and 150 pesos. If you walk to nearby Plaza del Sol, you can take the Premier VIP bus, which will also get you to Tlaquepaque at 11 pesos per person.

There are plenty of restaurants in the Expo area, especially as you get closer to Plaza del Sol. My favorites are Pipiolo and Karnes Garibaldi. You'll also find a decent seafood restaurant called Mariscos El Memin. In Plaza del Sol itself, there are a ton of places to eat, including Sanborn's, VIPs, Chilis, Burger King, Pizza Hut and a number of different local eateries. If you fancy Starbucks, there's one on Avenida Mariano Otero, not far from the Expo. The options in Tlaquepaque for food are even better in my opinion, with fewer chain restaurants and more locally owned ones serving traditional cuisine.

The FIL (feria del libro) is an exciting time to be in Guadalajara. In addition to the good deals on books and the famous authors who show up at the fair, there are a number of good concerts throughout the city.
