Delicioys chilaquiles! Also very nice hamburguers, but careful, it's a lot of food, you might want to share. Great place for sunday breakfast with friends and family.

Had a quick lunch here while we were studying in Guanajuato. The food was quick and generously sized. I got the Pozole which I hadn't yet tried and I wasn't disappointed; hot, tangy from the chilli and full of chicken. My partner got a Hawaiian style burger and enjoyed it as well. We ordered a jug of Agua Fresca as... More

Nothing too attractive here but the location on the corner. Basic decor and food menu, which isn't too bad of a thing, tacos done well. Good meal just nothing special

Not sure if it lives up to the "sweet little place" with "amazing food" and "great food" descriptions. One thing that annoyed our party of 4 was that there were no prices listed on the menu (very rare in our Mexican travels). The young staff ( 3 persons) were friendly, however since we were the only customers in the place,... More

I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner at El Chauistle restaurant many times because I just love it! The price to quality is absolutely great!! Right now there are 4 Chauistles in Guanajuato and the way the places look and how they are decorated is very cool. I always take my foreigners that visit me (couchsurfing) there and they all...

This is a sweet little place with amazing food right in the center of Guanajuato. Stumbled upon it while walking around at lunchtime, and the ladies were lovely and very welcoming and the food was very home style made with a lot of pride.

This is one of the very places you can eat at outside for a decent price. The basic rule is, of course, to avoid the plazas, which are usually tourist traps with high prices and bad food (such as La Botellita, Van Gogh, and pretty much anything else on San Fernando plaza). This place has 2 or 3 tables outside,... More

Enchiladas verdes were delicious - better than the ones I had the night before at a restaurant in the jardín de la reunión. And half the price. My husband had apple/ vanilla crepes - rich and delicious. My kids went back the next day, they loved it so much!

This is a small corner restaurant run by two women. They serve breakfast and lunch. We have been there twice for lunch and both times ordered the menu, the fixed price multicourse meal. The menu includes an agua fresca, soup, salad, entree with meat, rice and vegetables, and dessert. The food is great Mexican homecooking. Not fancy but simple and full of flavor. Very delicious. Very accessible. There are, of course, a la carte items which we have never tried. I recommend this strongly as a restaurant with authentic flavors of Mexico.
