Mexico is our home and we bring you traditional Mexican fare as well as those dishes you miss from your home in the north – eggs with hash browns, smoked beef brisket and smoked pork chops. Instead of a typical printed menu, you will find a daily menu board, allowing us to provide you only the freshest meats available each day, along with the most flavorful ‘in season’ fruits and vegetables.
The Traditions of Mexico,
With the Comforts of Home
At ‘Las Abejas’ we have the largest indirect heat smoker grill in all of Manzanillo, if not all of Mexico. We will offer a wonderful smoked Prime Rib of beef along with other smoked favorites. Each week, we will have a family style dining menu that will appeal to all in your family as well as your budget.
‘Las Abejas’ will open early so you can begin your day with fresh ground coffee, roasted right here in Manzanillo. Be assured that the coffee beans that went into that cup were ground that morning and that our fruit juices are freshly squeezed.
Our promise to you is a great and varied menu, offering you excellent quality at a fair price. From Huevos Rancheros to Chilaquiles and Biscuits and Gravy in the morning; a selection of Tortas and fresh salads with smoked meats for lunch; to delectable smoked Prime Rib, smoked pork or beef ribs in the evening.
We will be opening very soon and look forward to serving you.
