This town is not known for it's gourmet dining, barbacoa, chiles, nopals, the basics. Good locations across from the plaza, after dining be sure to go to the park for delicious ice creams and ices, sit on a bench and people watch, The best.

We ate here a couple of years back and found a satisfying lunch. This visit was less satisfying but filled a need. Great people watching on the plaza from the restaurant!

To eat like I did, what I had, for about $10US, you'd travail even to do this at home. Open since 1971, the Plaza has thrived for more than 4 decades, even surviving the mid-90's "President Salinas thievery" era. More like a 4 star bistro...More

My family & I ate here and liked the food. The teens that were with us also liked it. The prices were not bad either.

We very much enjoyed our lunch at the Restaurant Bar Plaza. It is a very typical Mexican restaurant, which is a good thing, as it means great food and attentive service. The comida corrida comes with a lovely little dessert, but you might want to...More
