“Iconic”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Whilst a lone guerra sat in the window may feel a bit like an extra exhibit the speed of service, atmosphere (full of one off artworks by locals and internationals), quality of food and prices can't be knocked. They do some wonderful home inventions too with a south-eastern european twist on mexican favourites.

“Great food & service”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

My husband and I were wondering the streets of Zacatecas and came across this wonderful oasis. I ordered the chix torta and my husband ordered the tamales ( green & red ) Both of our meals were not only fantastico, but they were also well priced and well portioned. We will visit again and recommend to all.

“Ok restaurant”
Reviewed December 2, 2011

This restaurant was convenient as it was just across the street from our hotel. However, for the price and quality, I would eat elsewhere. Likes: location, the restaurant style. Dislikes: not a good value nor of real good quality.

“Don't bother!”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

The service was terrible. Our server, Anna, was rude and inefficient. She was the typical server who rushes around yet never gets anything done. I recall asking her why certain menu items had columns next to them, yet she couldn't bother to open her mouth to answer. Instead she nodded at the columns in the logo on the window. When I insisted on an answer she said "they are recommended." Getting her attention was impossible. When she gave herself a tip on the check I asked her to undo it and, my wife said, Anna rolled her eyes. The food was actually good but it was overshadowed by this terrible server. Eat elsewhere!

“Dirty, tired and not worth the hype”
Reviewed April 23, 2011

Save yourself some time and go somewhere else. This place is surviving on reputation alone. It is basically a Denny's with the sticky booths, filthy tables and rude help to go along with it. (my apologies to anyone who works at a Denny's).
