“Great little casual place with great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

We were a bit disconcerted when we arrived. La Artesanal is tiny, on a street corner in a residential neighborhood. Plank tables, no frills. Then we saw the grill! Everything was delicious, the 'arrachera' cut was tender and juicy, guacamole made on the spot. The only tequila is 7Leguas, which is very good indeed. Empanadas/pastry pies were out if this world. Freshly made dough from a friend of he owner's. Pies are filled and fried in the spot. They also grill 'chistorras' a spanishstyle thinner version of the Paprika chorizo from Spain. Those come in a perfectly grilled spiral, so very good! They make the best corn tortillas I've ever had, Fernando was on the grill, what a pleasure to talk to, and very informative. We were too full to eat dessert, but the selection was all homemade. It's a neighborhood joint with excellent food. Great place to have a cold beer and good food with family or friends.

“Economico y buena comida / Good food, cheap bill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

Very quite place in a neighborhood. I wouldn't go there for a long night, but for a really good steak cooks on the BBQ, I'd definitely recommend it.

The owner is sympatic. You need to understand the kind of meat you want, because there is no photo-menu.

Quiet nice little neighborhood restaurant. The young chef/owner is very friendly and attentive. He offers a terrific selection of steaks and cooks them just the way you want. We definitely will go back.
