Sanborn’s (Hotsson Hotel, Plaza Leon, Leon, Guanajuato)
The one thing I love about Sanborn’s is that its restaurant is absolutely reliable. Much like the Canadian chains Earls and Milestones, which are also reliable good (sometimes brilliant, but mostly consistently good), Sanborn’s provides you with comfort food (their Mexican food selection is incredible) at accessible prices.
I had dinner with my good friend Antonio a few weeks back, during the Enchilada Festival, so I ordered enchiladas (for less than $120 pesos, I had a full meal and a glass of soda) for dinner. Absolutely delicious, but then again, Sanborn’s enchiladas are ALWAYS good. He ordered molletes, which is also a very traditional Mexican dish.
I came back to Sanborn’s in Aguascalientes and had a Caldo Tlalpeno, which unfortunately was extremely hot, but great nonetheless. I was a bit taken aback by the price ($65 pesos for the soup, which is less than $6 CND dollars) but still, had an amazing dinner for $100 pesos or less.
Overall, definitely you should check out Sanborn’s. It provides you with a store, a magazine area and a cake area too. Pretty fun place to go, and the restaurant is always good. Recommended and worth checking out.
Disclosure: As with most of my meals, I paid on my own dime, except for dinner with Antonio, when he paid on his dime for both of our dinners. I retain full editorial control over anything posted on my site.
