This a topical restaurant of any main square of any town in Mexico. You'll find many options in the menu, but the Mexican Foods is a good one option: Enchiladas, Tampiquena, etc. this restaurant in just in front of Dolores Church.

After spending the day sightseeing at this small town in Central Mexico I decided to eat a late lunch at this restaurant. Conveniently located next to the main plaza. Great front and center, you can people watch while dining. The atmosphere is of Old Mexico. I was the only tourist. The place was packed with locals and the university students.... More

After spending the morning tramping through the shops and markets and churches of Dolores Hidalgo we decided to stop for lunch at The Plaza which is located on the square. The restaurant is one of the nicer offerings in this real Mexican town (not really tourist oriented, but very interesting) and they take credit cards! There is no English menu.... More

I had the fish diabla which was cooked right. The house salad came with a very tasty herbal dressing. Fresh melon juice was refreshing. The pollo taco was so-so, with the meat a little dry.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch at the Plaza Restaurant. There are lots of lunch options to chose from on the menu - including a lunch of the day at a very reasonable price. I enjoyed a pork entree with very tasty sauce and rice and beans - and a Mexican beer. I can't remember the name of the dish, but... More

We were here as part of a tour, so we had a set menu, so maybe this review is not totally accurate. The food was fair, not great. The staff was friendly and coped well with thirty people. We had a nice view of the plaza. I do recommend getting an ice cream cone on the plaza -- I tried... More

This town is not known for it's gourmet dining, barbacoa, chiles, nopals, the basics. Good locations across from the plaza, after dining be sure to go to the park for delicious ice creams and ices, sit on a bench and people watch, The best.
