If you're visiting Guanajuato, Mercado Hidalgo is a must-see -- "You can get anything you want -- at Alice's Restaurant." Just substitute the words "Mercado Hidalgo." Great fun.

This is a great place to catch lunch, or any meal. There are stalls selling tacos, burgers, and seafood. The fish soup is particularly good. Very inexpensive and great tasting food.

Really enjoyed the cheap comida corrida that was served in the various locales in this market. It may not be super fancy but if what you are looking for is something cheap, local and pretty quick, you will find it here.

Not much to see, when I visit Mercados in Mexico i expect to see lots of colorful local artisinal displays of products...not the case here, nothing looked apetizing or interesting, maybe it was just the place itself that looked very run down and unsanitary...
