It's a great place to grab a quick inexpensive meal - not a place for a special occasion.

Many of our friends like the tamales - you can get sweet and savoury.

Some visitors worry that the because the guisados (various meats and veggies in sauces) are prepared ahead of time and then kept warm they could cause a health hazard. We've eaten there several times and have never had a problem, nor have we heard of anyone having a problem.

I believe they are only open for the evenings from about 6 pm for 'cena' - Mexican dinner. And most likely not open Sundays.

It is a must. Good regional food, reasonable prices. The waitreses are very kind. Sometimes the music is opera or bell canto. The founder was a theater and opera lover.

Be prepared to enjoy a delicious traditional local food in one typical cenaduria. Try the wonderful quesadillas

We make a habit of asking the locals where the best food is when we are in a new town. In Aguascalientes, all the locals were unanimous in recommending The Cenaduria San Antonio. We decided to give it a try. This restaurant is decidedly a "locals" hangout. A tourist not used to Mexico would probably not stop in to give it a try. That would be too bad because, In my opinion, this place has the best tamales I have ever come across in all of mexico. The lamb stew is also excellent if a bit spicy. The décor is non-existent and the building is usually crowded past the point of comfortability, but the excellent food is worth the effort. Located on the main drag, about 8 blocks south of the central plaza. I recommend this place for anyone who is a true aficionado of good Mexican food.
