This is one of the most traditional places to eat in Puebla, but it has definitely gone downhill. It might have been the season (Xmas/NYE) but service was slow and the wait was long. The food is nothing to get excited about and service was...More

This would be the perfect place for eating a decent variety of mexican food, with great taste and assuring the quality of the products. Order the molotes or the mole poblano if you are uo to something more spicy.
