Revolution is a popular theme in Mexico and La Revolucion has been a restaurant/bar in its present location for over 30 years. Of course, the current owner’s incarnation is only 2009, but the name remains the same, with the addition of this now being a “sports bar.” A revolutionary sports bar….
The full bar is also a restaurant with very reasonable prices (at least for breakfast) and decent food. There are indoor and outdoor seating areas and all are comfortable and pleasant. Large screen TVs adorn the walls. If you go there to drink, botanas (snacks beyond pretzels and peanuts) are served, a Mexican bar tradition which, for all practical purposes, no longer exists in tourist Vallarta.
This is a popular early meeting/drinking place for locals who work in the surrounding stores and government offices. Tony Colin, the owner, has several restaurants/bars in Vallarta and is well known in certain circles.
