Lunch in Avila?

Hola, amigos,
I will be in Avila on a weekday afternoon in October.
Can anyone recommend a place to have a casual lunch?
I am more interested in regional dishes and traditions than I am in "modern takes on, etc."
That said, I'd rather eat where the locals eat.
Thanks for any recommendations.

  1. Hi, we were in Avila last year for a Bob Dylan concert - and had lunch in town just outside the wall at La Bruja. Was good, but is a bit "tapas elaboradas" and may not be what you're looking for. We also thought El Rastro looked good, but were dining with a vegetarian friend - and found more suitable offerings at La Bruja. However, you can find all the restaurants in town at - fotos and brief menu descriptions (in spanish).
