This is right around the corner from La Parroquia, and very easy to find. As the prior reviews say, the green enchiladas and the pozole are fantastic. You get some tortillas to break up in the pozole-it is so tasty. We went one night and...More

This place is just around the corner from the main square and attracts domestic and foreign tourists, alike. The menu isn't extensive but they have very tasty enchiladas and pozole. Spicy, but not overwhelming. They also have litres of 'michilada' beer for only $50 MXP....More

Awesome little, charming place, not touristic but favorite of many locals. The food is real Mexican and non-pretentious. The enchiladas, pozole and breaded chicken are the best.

With so many wonderful restaurants to visit in this town, when looking for authentic Mexican food, La Alborada is definitely not on my list anymore. Food doesn't feel fresh, and service is non existent, considering the owner is probably one of the worst hosts I've...More
