Description: Hank's is the new name of the famous Harry's Restaurant with 12 years of history in Mexico, since 1999 in San Miguel Allende and since 2004 in Queretaro. Hank's is a bit of Louisiana and its "French Quarter", which offers the traditional Cajun cuisine from New Orleans. The atmosphere at Hank's is incomparable, you can enjoy a delicious dinner or spend a pleasant evening in the bar, drinking a margarita, a martini or a devastating hurricane while listening to jazz music.

Went to Hank's on a Sunday evening about 8 pm because the Longhorn was closed and I was tired of Mexican cuisine. The bar was busy but I had my choice of dining areas because the restaurant wasn't very busy.

I ordered a draft Negro Modelo and the signature jambalaya, but asked that they not include the oysters. The jambalaya was spiced just about right --- zippy but not too hot, with chunks of chicken & andouille. The entire staff was polite and attentive without being intrusive. Total tab was 200 pesos, a little high for San Miguel but not excessive.

The music was somewhat loud and New Orleans themed. If the dining areas were full it probably wouldn't have seemed as loud.

Overall, good enough that I would return on another visit, but not fantastic enough that I would return again during my short visit.

The ambiance at Hank's really great. Fabulous background music, great drinks an happy hour, classic expat hangout. Food definitively not up to par. Same dishes taste different from time to time. Most of dishes feel and taste "old" as if they had been prepared hours before. Just not worth it unfortunately.

If you suspend your disbelief you'll swear you are in the french Quarter. Great menu, personable waiters and live music. Had the BBQ shrimp and they were as good as any I've had in New Orleans. Their burgers are top notch and the desserts not to be missed.

If you enjoy meeting new people, Hank's (was Harry's) is the place to go. They have a happy hour from 5:00pm to 8:00pm every night and the bar is a great mix of gringos and Mexicans, with everyone very friendly.
The food here is very good: it ranges from bar food to excellent "sit down" restaurant food and everything is of first class quality. Tuesday night is Taco night (with Tacos and Burritos); Wednesday is Martini night; and Thursday is Hurricane night (the New Orleans influence).
If you are visiting San Miguel de Allende, make certain that this is first on your list of places to check out and have a drink (or more) at the bar.
