“Racers Restaurant”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

Good food, and if you like chicken soup, order a bowl, be ready for a large order with the whole leg. Rice included. great when hot or on cold day. Sit outside watch the water and fishing boats.

“Nice Surprise”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

We found this little place on the San Felipe website and decided to give it a try. We had chicken mole, caldo de res, cheese omlette and quesidillas. There is no english spoken here, so you may need to point at the menu item you want, but the excellent food is well worth any language barrier you may have to bridge. The food was fresh, hot and deliscious. Prices are very reasonable too.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed 30 September 2009

They have daily specials and the fish meatball soup is really good. I agree with the other guy who lives here. Get there early or call and they'll hold you a dish. Very clean and excellent food. I think they close at 2:00 p.m. or they used to. I haven't eaten there lately, but I used to.

“No Club sandwiches here...”
Reviewed 19 September 2009

A little off the "Main Drag" between the Red Lobster and the liquor store at Mar Baltico #138 Norte is where you will find, "El Minuto."
Alba Valle and her daughters Claudia and Carla will be "At your Service" from 7am-3pm, they are closed on Wednesdays.
This is where the locals eat, this is where they bring their families. You can eat inside or out in their very nice patio under a large shade tree.
Everything on the menu is true Mexican fare and the prices are hard to believe. Nothing is over $60.00 pesos, about $4.50 dlls.
The most popular dish in Caldo de Res, a flavorful beef soup. Soups in Mexico as not reserved for afternoon or evening meals, this is their "Day starter." But, you had better get there early, by 10:30 she is usually out of Caldo, there are no left-overs in this restaurant.
This is a restaurant that will have you feeling like you are dining with family....you will return.
