Grocery Store
One of the many perks of being in Mexico is cheap food, but if you plan to stay long term (or just live on a budget like the rest of us), you’ll need to visit the local grocery store from time to time. Carniceria La Mexicana is where you’ll get the most bang for your peso. It’s only a 25 minute walk from most campgrounds (15-20 from Sendero), and though it’s not the largest store in town, their selection may surprise you. The largest (something like a small Walmart) is Bodega on Highway 53. It’s a longer walk, but they may have what you’re looking for if you can’t find it elsewhere. If all you need is booze or a snack, there are plenty of depositos(beer store) on the way into town. They accept credit cards as well.

El Buho Cafe
Originally opened as a Christian/climber outreach to the community, El Buho is the post-climb/ pre-climb/ rest day hangout for climbers at EPC. If you’re looking for partners or info on the area, this is where you want to be. Employees even organize movie nights and barbecues that everyone in the community are welcome to attend. Buho offers free wifi and a large selection of used books for trade or purchase.

Isabella “Isa” Guerrero and Poncho Löpez
Poncho and Isa tend to change locations from season to season, but it’s in your best interest to find out where they’re cooking. Ask around when you arrive. These two make the best food in EPC and cater to vegetarians, vegans, and meat eaters alike.
Welcome to Faceburger, home of the faceburger, the burger that is literally bigger than your face. For just 80 pesos, you can walk right into the home of this wonderful family and eat yourself to fucking death. After you order, head around the corner and pick up a drink because the burgers take about 20 minutes to cook. Open Friday-Sunday.

Hidalgo Tamales
Best tamales in town for just 6 pesos (seriously, about 25 cents) a pop. They make excellent snacks for long, multi-pitch days. Options include carne, pollo, frijoles, and dulce. Mix and match! Find them next to the town center square next to the Catholic church.

Leo’s Tacos aka “The Meat Cage”
Stop by on your way back to camp for the best grilled chicken and roasted pork in the area. With lots of beer, music, and great food, Leo has everything you need to treat yourself after a rough day in the canyon. He even caters to vegetarians.
