Usually has two meat dishes and one vegetarian selection on the menu of the day. With each meal comes the salad bar that has three veggies and two fruits (no lettuce).

This is a vegetarian restaurant, but it also offers a meat dish as well. There is white rice and white bread--no whole grains here. The food is basic and not as good as in Guadalajara or Mexico City, but it's passable, and it costs 25 pesos for the meal of the day. It is open Monday to Friday only from 1 to 5:30pm.
