Excellent variety of tacos and taco-joint style food. Try the Maciza, a kind of pork meat. The quesos are really good, too. This is an especially good place for foreigners who want some authentic Mexican 'street food' and who want to avoid the intestinal distress that often follows eating on the street in Mexico City.

Good tacos and tortas, good service, reasonable prices. Try the "aguas de sabores" (drinks from natural fruits), and the flan napolitano.

El farolito is a long tradition with in the Mexican chain of tacos, they have all rage of tacos, from carnitas to barbacoa pastor, pozole y de bisteck... They serve only beer and mexican fresh fruit waters. One of the biggest success of this chain was their investments in Spain!

I always like to go typical when in a foreign city, and this was a great stop for great local tacos. The preparation of the corn tortillas was excellent; no excess oil dripping off of them as many others taquerias have. They offered a broad menu of meats and several great salsas. I was with a large group, and we... More
