This is an exceptional venue because it is open to the street with all of the grilling for the beef done in the front of the restaurant. The seasoning is fabulous with many different flavors included in the grill sauce. We both had the famous baseball filet mignon and it was incredibly good. This is a smaller place with less... More

Small quaint restaurant with only a half dozen tables or so. We went with our 2 young children & had a lovely time.. Ribs melted in your mouth and the sides were very good. Our 2 1/2 yr old son's chicken parm was excellent. I ordered a piña colada, that they made from scratch & was beyond delicious! We were... More

If you're looking for a good steak or burger this is your place. Small and maybe not the best bet on a really hot day, otherwise, a good deal. Baked potato to die for, meat cooked perfectly. ....

Myself and several other friends had dinner at Bruno's last Thursday night, August 18. The service was very good and the food was wonderful. I had the baseball steak with a baked potato and it was the best baked potato I've ever had in Mexico. If you want steak Bruno's is the place to go. They do season the meat... More

As we walked by, it had a quaint atmosphere, number of guests, so we ventured in. Looked at the menu, was priced rite, thought we'd give it a go. Unfortunately down hill from there. Positive was a nice glass of Malbec, but quality and flavor of the food was very, very disappointing.

There are many pretenders to the "throne" of "best steak in Ajijic", but Bruno's is, by far, the most tasty, tender, and reliably prepared every time. Accompaniments are limited, but great. Decor is 20th century American dingy with several floor levels (about 2 inches apart, some sloped), but the people, service, and food more than make up for deficiencies there.... More

One of the oldest grills in the area, and they know what they are doing. The setting could really use an upgrade, but I don't notice on Friday evening when they serve delicious prime rib. Better call ahead and reserve it if you want Prime Rib.

How this place garners glowing reviews is beyond me. The place is tiny, dingy and dirty with the most uncomfortable seating. A pile of old fabric, rags. clothing is piled up on top of something in the cowner of the restaurant. They allow dogs so in amongst all of this in a tiny place were two animal. Our burgers took...
