Food is delicious. Service is not so fast but is worth the wait, portions are enough for 2 (we had the famous chamorro in beer sauce), staff is friendly. Us pretty crowded but they manage it. Most important is happy hour from 5to 8 everyday.

Our small fox terrier "Ika" will be with us, as always. We are staying at the Rosewood where Ika is most welcome. Can Ika join the four of us during our meal at your restaurant?

Hank's is the new name of the famous Harry's Restaurant with 12 years of history in Mexico, since 1999 in San Miguel Allende and since 2004 in Queretaro. Hank's is a bit of Louisiana and its "French Quarter", which offers the traditional Cajun cuisine from New Orleans. The atmosphere at Hank's is incomparable, you can enjoy a delicious dinner or spend a pleasant evening in the bar, drinking a margarita, a martini or a devastating hurricane while listening to jazz music.
