This restaurant overlooking the zocalo afforded good food and the oppotunity to view the locals as they went about their daily lives. Nothing upscale, yet good food and the wine was good and cheap. The service was also good. A good restaurant to sample Mexican fare.

After visiting the Municipal Palace to see the Murals of Desiderio Hernandez it was suggested that we try one of thee establishments in the square to eat traditional food from the area. The choice was the Cafe Los Portales. While we got there a bit before a rush hour, the service was a little slow. More so, we were disappointed in the food. I had chili rellenos which was burnt, and the rest had a combination plate of nopales, peneques, cheese, arrachera, chicharron, guacamole and meat which was only OK. Considering the location and in the heart of tourism, for us, it was below expectations. While the combination was OK, there has to be better choices. The place can be crowded and I think it would be difficult for handicap people to get around. This is a town I think would maybe be off the beaten path for most tourist unless one was interested in Hernandez's work. My sister-in-law had planned to stop off here going back to Mexico City from Puebla. That's about a two hour drive.
