El Pialadero de Guadalajara Restaurant Review

: Located on a nondescript corner at the edge of the Zona Rosa, El Pialadero de Guadalajara isn’t the Ritz (though it has snappy service), but locals gratefully sacrifice elegance for hearty portions of Guadalajara home cooking at good prices. Traditionalists may go for the torta ahogada, a pulled-pork sandwich served on an oversize bun, then smothered in broth---messy to eat, but oh so worth it. Steaming bowls of pozole (hominy stew) are also a crowd pleaser, and are well-nigh medicinal after a late night. Even El Pialadero’s curious “shrimp hamburger,” fat grilled shrimp and cheese on a bun, with all the fixin’s, impresses us for freshness and pure caloric gratification. Fresh salsas on every table are tasty---but flaming hot---so test your limits before adding it on. Finally, be prepared to wait for a table during the lunch rush, especially on weekends.
