We usually have their chargrilled hamburgers, averaging about $70-$80 pesos, complete with French Fries or a salad, or nicely steamed vegetables, as you wish. But yesterday, we saw on the menu "Parrillada para dos" ( or para tres, cuatro, etc.). These are combinations of grilled boneless chicken, sirloin, and shrimp. There is another combo including chorizo and two other meats, but I wasn't paying attention. The parrilladas cost $155 pesos, a very good deal, indeed, for two hungry diners.
The parrilladas come with Papas Francesas, but as always, you can substitute salad or vegetables.
The salads and "guarniciones"—side dishes— are displayed as in a salad bar, but they are not self service. The employees will dish up your selection, and usually with a generous hand.

Soft drinks, beer and aguas frescas are offered. We especially like their creamy horchata.
The seating and ambience at the Gastronómico food court is not conducive to long, leisurely lunches, nor business meetings. You will never mistake it for a fine dining venue. But it's fine if you accept it as is is. And, since the video games area closed a few years ago, the noise level is more acceptable now.
The men's rest room, (far end of the food court) at least, appears to have been refurbished and was well maintained when we were there yesterday.
The Gastronómico food court is located towards the northern end of Plaza La Huerta, close to Home Depot.
Emilio's Grill also offers breakfast, but we have never tried that.
Service: Semi self service. It's not Fast Food. Meals are prepared to order, average wait, 10 minutes. Well supplied with decent plastic utensils, napkins, straws, etc. You only need to look or ask.
Prices: Average about $80 per person
Parking: Just outside is the Plaza La Huerta parking lot.
I don't have info on their hours of operation, but I imagine that they open around 10 a.m. We are usually there in the early to mid afternoon.
