El Aguaje Del Moro

Reviewed By Jodi T - Queretaro, Mexico

Went on the basis of great reviews. It's close to centro, maybe a block out, easy to find. The Terrace is nice, over looking the soccer field and Mountains. They're famous for their enchiladas with Cecina, so that's what we had. We like spicy; my whole family is Mexican. But wow, when you have to drown the enchiladas in crema because it is so spicy... no. On the bright side, Cecina was tasty and the beer ice cold.

Las Carretas

Reviewed By pumpermum - BC

We had a very enjoyable experience dining at Las Carretas.
We sat outside on the patio and were served by a very efficient and professional waiter. Totopos and salsas to start were excellent. We both had shrimp in mojo de ajo (104 pesos) and they were fantastic. Served with rice and a very nice array of vegetables.
I had a good Sangria and my daughter said her pina colada was excellent. We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to travellers.

Restaurant Tequila

Reviewed By tomshort003 - Jalpan de Serra, Mexico

Love the area all around Jalpan, but the town suffers in restaurant options. Even though Tequila was highly rated here and by the locals, the only positive I found was the very good Tequila shot they offer upon arrival. Service - terrible. I arrived at 5:30PM today, and there was one other man dining. The waitress forgot to bring two items that I ordered with my acamaya (crawfish) dinner. After I had to remind her, they came but my dinner was finished. The crawfish were a total waste of money. The only flavour they had was the garlic spice. They were two or more day old catch and were "mushy". I lived many years on the Gulf Coast of US, so I am familiar with this delicacy. Prices - very inflated. And I have lived all over Mexico for 28 years. There are much better restaurants in Jalpan where the locals eat, and you will pay a fraction of the pesos. This place is overrated on this site. Diner Beware!

Tapanco'S Restaurant

Reviewed By Alejandra R

My brother and I visited this restaurant Thanksgiving break (Nov 2017). I was pleasantly surprised. The food was really good. My brother ordered cecina (like a steak that's common in here) with fries (made from scratch!), and I ordered enfrijoladas, which is a Mexican dish that consists of cheese tacos covered in a bean sauce. It was delicious! Staff was very attentive, the view and the ambiance was really nice and the drinks were really good. Best michelada I have drank in a long time. I thought the courtesy drinks they offer you when you first get there (which can be a Tequila shot or a beer) was a really nice gesture. And thank goodness for the Wi-Fi! Over all, quite a nice experience.

Pepe Pastes

Reviewed By AECC - Queretaro City, Mexico

Es el típico Paste de Hidalgo con papa y Carne , aunque también hay otros sabores como Mole con Pollo, Queso con Zarzamora, Manzana etc lo importante es que también hay empanadas de sabores diverso y es bueno distinguir las masas, es un buen lunch carretero .buena atención de la encargada Micaela Chavez .
