I have eaten breakfast and dinner at this place . Never a bad meal at this spot... They also have a lil show they do when you order crepas de cajeta. Not close to the border but worth the taxi ride. Tell them Johnny D sent you and enjoy your meal.

Was referred to this place by a local.. 10 minute light walk from where we were stating (Grand Hotel) opens at 7:00 am. Excellent egg white vegetable omelette.. Price was fair and atmosphere was old Mexico. Service was very good..

This ia a great place for breakfast. Under a huge "sombrero" a round restaurant with all the Mexican dishes. On the main blvd , this place has been here over 50 years. Frequented by high end locals , easy location and parking.

Really nice food, plenty of grilled Mexican food and amazing deserts. Tequila is fantastic and considering that a meal for two and four tequila cost just over 40 USD I'll say is reasonably priced.
