This is the first time I tried a lava bowl, and it was so good, I had a hard timev stopping even though the portion was generous. We liked the service and drinks and can't wait to go back. There is limited parking available.

El Herradero was highly recommended by our new friend "Ishmael" and he was 100% right. The food and service are superb and we enjoyed everything. It's a quality and quantity experience, you'll leave full and happy. We'll be back.

We had various stone dishes, with chicken, shrimps and fish. They were all deliciuos. We had also a good guacamole and the hot cheese. If you go with kids, in this place you cannot find the traditional mexican food, such as quaesadilla or fajitas.

Nice place for traditional, local cuisine. My wife and I split a shrimp molecajete. It arrived piping hot in the lava bowl with the cheese and juices bubbling. The beer and margaritas were cold and refreshing. The pineapple ice cream topped it all off. That...More

I think they would be able to do that. I would suggest a reservation way before and if you have been there, tell them where you want to sit. I have seen groups of about 16 there before, around Christmas. They seem to want... More
