“Excellent Breakfast”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Delicious breakfasts, with hand made tortillas. The lady will be making them just a few minutes before you will be eating them. Coffee was tasty as well.

Fast service if you will be catching a bus. We were able to eat there because our bus was delayed, and I am so glad that it was.

Great value.

“Good location - inexpensive - but the food is just very very average”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We stayed in Palenque for two nights on our way through Mexico. There's a bunch of restaurants in town. This one's right a the main drag next to the ADO Bus station, so it's hard to miss.

There's all the typical mexican meals on the menu. For a starter we had some Guacamole. For the main we chose the chicken Tacos and the Pulpo with sides. And beer...they unfortunately almost didn't have any ice (and the fridge didn't work well we've been told). Well, better warm beer than none.

The food was very average. The Guacamole was alright. The Tacos really really bland (even with the extras sauces). The Pulpo was just ok, but not really on the freshest side and quite a bit chewy.
We've had lots of authentic mexican food througout our 5 week trip. Some bad ones, some really great ones...and then a bunch that was just so average. And this place is one of them. It's cheap and alright enough to fill your stomach. But it's nothing more than that.

Palenque in general has quite a food problem. We tried out three, four places. And we had the impression that none of them does a really good job at it. But this town is about the ruins and not the food anyway.

“The best budget option in town”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

If you're looking for a budget option for a traditional Mexican menu (soup, main meal and a dessert), located very close to the bus station. Watch out for the lentil soup if you're vegetarian- it contains meat!
