Description: At El Bajío we try to make art and culture being noticed and enjoyed by eating the magnificence of traditional Mexican cuisine. We provide a space in which the most diverse dishes of the traditional Mexican cuisine coexist, starting with the delicacies of Carmen "Titita’s" homeland of Veracruz such as the anise gorditas, the filet of fish Veracruz-style and the papantecos tamales, as well as typical dishes of northern Mexico, including the pride of the house: carnitas Michoacán-style, as well as other delicacies from Yucatán, Puebla and Oaxaca, to mention a few others.

If you aren't Mexican (and even more if you are a Mexican) and want to experience truly Mexican cuisine, then try one of several El Bajio restaurants in Mexico City. Prices aren't chip but every penny is wort twice its value. And not less important is how the personnel takes care of you to provide you absolute satisfaction.

I had a late lunch here and was beyond impressed. The service, while not warm, was very accommodating, allowing me to try to different sauces on the chicken enchiladas and I'm SO GLAD I did. The mole sauce, which I'm normally not a huge fan of, was incredible. And the salsa HOT!! The guacamole and side black beans (which had consistency of retried beans) were perfection.

I will eat here again to try the carnitas. I can't wait and highly recommend. There is a steady mid of families, business professionals and locals enjoying the nice day.

Wonderful!

Nothing to say, good food for what I took (soap+quesadilla+fried banana).
Not expensive, quick and clean, I appreciated it.

Went there for a quick and late business lunch, an authentic Mexican experience without the Mariachi. :-)
Excellent tacos, wonderful service, always available but not stressful.
The kind of place in which I will come back again. Seriously advised either for the business traveler and for the tourist.

Lunch for two people, no wine, about 600MXN
