Fodor's Review

El Fogón de Jovel, spread across a lovely colonial courtyard, strikes a balance: it caters to tourists but is still popular with locals. Order the parrillada chiapaneca for a sampling of regional specialties of Chiapas. They also serve a large selection of tamales, such as the tamal untado, which is stuffed with chicken and mole. In keeping with local ways, they serve a margarita made with posh (the local firewater).
