They upgraded and expanded the menu while I was in town. The soups are wonderful. Happy Hour brings an extra, a cold refreshing veggie plate with chili lime powder(I bought some of that chili to bring home with me).. The big waiter has such excellent service skills I wanted to hire him, he has that ability to "sense" when unobtrusive service is needed. Family run, mom and pop oversee kids, grand kids, the occasional billy goat(kidding) nieces, nephews etc. Book exchange in back, mostly books written in Spanish.

We found Huanacaxtle Bar and Cafe by accident when we went downtown Huanacaxtle. Absolutely fabulous food and Abril and Oliver are sweethearts. The family is from Acapulco and have been in Huanacaxtle since Oct. of 2010. They will make you feel like family and the food is very inexpensive and better yet, tastes great. I can not say enough about how wonderful this place is.

It was a very nice place, excellent music, very nice restaurant. The food was not to die for, but you get what you pay for. It was really inexpensive, a dinner for 2 was like 16 USD. (and we got a lot of food). Nice staff. The hot wings were good, but the hot dog (I don know any other place that serves them :)) was sort of nah. Anyway good place overall.

We live in La Cruz 5-6 months a year and we've been hearing great things about 'the new kid on the block' -- The Huanacaxtle Bar and Grill (You have to consume 3 Margarita's to say it properly). Well, we finally got over there last night and WOW! - what a refreshing change from some of the places here in town (take note Ana Bananas and Philo's). The place was clean, the bathrooms (notice plural) were spotless (no Johnny on the Spots), the service was superb and the Food Excellent for the price. The staff are from Mexico City, speak beautiful English (much better than us poor Gringoes) and are a pure delight. The menu is limited - this is definitely a Bar/ Cafe -- not a top end Restaurant, but how can you beat the price? For Approx $8.00 CDN/ US per person, you get a couple of drinks (beer/wine), soup, salad or Spaghetti as an appetizer, a burger and Fries (or tacos) as an entree, and for a small amount extra, you get a serving of their specialty ice cream. The portion was so large that even when we shared, we barely finished it!
We looked at the Breakfast menu and were extremely impressed. You can easily have a full breakfast including coffee, fruit, juices, and various egg/ ham/ etc dishes for unde $4.00 US. We're definitely heading over in the next day or two to try out the breakfast and luncheon menu. A special thank you to our server Abril for being so attentive and so very charming. Calling all the Gringoes in town who keep going to the same old dusty worn out spots in town. Try this place out! you will love it!

Great spot for breakfast, lunch and or dinner. Closed Tuesdays, great music on Wednesday for dinner. Exceptional service by April who is always trying to improve upon your experience. The food is typical Mexican with all the home made trimmings. Impressive breakfast with many courses, including yummy orange bread, fresh fruit cocktail and loved the home made beans. This has been a regular spot for my husband and I.
