The specialty has always been, and still is, chiles en nogada which has become their signature dish. It is the same recipe that won an award at the national festival of stuffed chiles held in Mexico City every year. This is not the only award; they also won a state prize in 2003 for having one of the best chiles in nogada in the state of Guanajuato.
