This is a great spot to wind down after visiting Teotihuacan. It was alot better than I expected, dining under a cave was quite an experience to begin with; yet this restaurant had delicious food and entertainment.

La Gruta is still a nice place to eat mexican traditional food without any risk. You can also enjoy live music or a local show without extra charge. Parking and clean toilets are available.
