“Hot, Sizzling, Molcajate in an outdoor setting”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

After a heavy rainstorm we took a drive to San Jose and found this place. It is clean restaurant under a palapa roof and the outdoor seating had a fresh breeze and a good view of the street scene below. Decorations are traditional with bright colored linens and leather and rattan chairs. The waiter was very friendly and knew the menu and made lots of suggestions. We settled on the arrachera and the shrimp molcajates. Sizzling steak and nopoles with onions were tender and tasty, and the shrimp was popping hot with a tasty sauce. The nopoles were not overcooked and had the taste of green beans. It was so tasty but way too much food. One molcajate would have been more than sufficient. We took our leftovers back to the resort and had a great dinner too. We will definitely return.

“Authentic Mexican”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Great restaurant. Wonderful fun staff and amazing food. Will definitely go there again. The waiters were fun and suggested I try a new dish (stone pot) which was excellent. Best margaritas I've had all trip.

“Bad Night !”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We went to this local restaurant because on the numerous v-good reviews on TA. We wanted fresh lobster, but they had none. The Ceasar salad I ordered tasted off and I ate very little of it.
I ordered grilled fish and received what looked like "steamed" mushy fish. Again I ate very little,feeling queasy. An hour later I was violently ill with a case of food poisioning..with all the side effects for 24 hours.
The wait staff was very good,but the street noise and street dust was very bad. Really cannot understand how this restaurant could get so many good reviews !

“Best authentic meal!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We took a trip to San Jose and our hotel concierge recommended we eat at El Herradero. The food was outstanding! We both ordered the hot stone meal with handmade tortillas. It was delicious! Our server, Pepe, went out of his way to ensure a great dining experience. The food, drinks and staff were incredible!
