Next door to Truco 7. Don't bother go to Truco 7. No comparison and they do not seem to care either!

This is the best traditional Mexican food in Guananjato. The City is not well regarded for the cuisine- sure there are some great "haute" cuisine Mexican places, with "haute " prices to match, but, nothing knocks your socks off. This place is clean, pleasant, tasty and attractive. Their enchiladas verde is the best in town.

We looked forward to returning to Casa Ofelia after dining there last year. We were not disapointed. The first evening we ordered off the menu. We had enchiladas mineras and enchiladas enmoladas. Both were delicious, but the mineras were out of this world. On the second visit we had the menu del dia which was guisado de cerdo and tacos suaves. Both dishes were well balanced and executed. We had excellent service on both visits. The atmosphere is very inviting. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We skipped Truco 7 and headed next door to Casa Ofelia based on the TA reviews we had read. Our dinner started out well enough. Our server was friendly and quick to speak English since he had lived in the States. The margaritas we had were good once we had ordered an extra shot of tequila to split between the 2 of them. We ordered Posole to share as an appetizer and the soup was tasty. It was the entrees that were a disappointment. We chose the tri-colored enchiladas and the sopes. The enchiladas were filled with a crumbly cheese rather than one that melted and the sauces were all rather bland. The sopes would have been enjoyable except that the blue corn base was fried for too long and we couldn't even cut them with a knife. We obviously would have preferred to be able to pick them up and eat them like we normally would. Fortunately this was a very budget friendly restaurant and the Posole was filling so we did not go away hungry or broke.

Casa Ofelia offers simple, straightforward Mexican food at very fair prices. We ate there twice, and tried the guacamole, a soup, a salad and several entrees. Everything was excellent. Service is polite and efficient. The customers are a mix of locals, students from the University and a few tourists.
