Every time Mrs Hillary Clinton or Mr Donald Trump said "Mexico" during their final presidential debate, pints of beer were raised at a restaurant south of the border called Pinche Gringo BBQ.

Some 200 people watched the debate late on Wednesday at the Mexican-American-owned barbecue joint in Mexico City whose name refers to an insult against Americans ("damn gringo").

The crowd was a mix of American expats and Mexicans, highlighting the deep interest and concerns that the US election has generated in Mexico - especially after Mr Trump caused so much anger with his anti-immigrant rhetoric.

"I abhor him. This man has no respect," said Juana-Ines Abreu, a 77-year-old retired Mexican museum director, who sat with friends on one of the restaurant's long table benches.

"What worries me is that he has awakened the 'ugly American,'" she said. "He's a xenophobe. He's a vulgar man. He's a dangerous man."

During the "final pinche presidential debate" - as a restaurant sign put it - people were encouraged to raise their glass and cheer when Mexico was mentioned, which they obliged a handful of times.

Mrs Clinton, the Democratic candidate and former secretary of state, clearly had more fans at "Pinche Gringo" than the New York Republican billionaire.
