The stands are not on Yelp or Trip Adviser. But if you see the locals lined up for the food GO FOR IT!

This is a nice area to walk in an afternoon, do some shopping and get something to eat or drink. The sunsets are beautiful from here and it is also a good place to go out for a run.

I used to love the Zona Romantica, but in recent years it's become increasingly touristy, to the point that I don't feel as if I'm in Mexico at all! I guess it's time for me to move on.
