This place is fantastic. When we first got there,people were lined up on the sidewalk. We were told the,wait would be 15 minutes but we did not believe it take such a short time with the huge number of people waiting. We were wrong. We got in and were really impressed by the service and food. They are quick,efficient and... More

Is a popular restaurant chain so you can find several locations around Mexico City (more than 20), check online. It is an authentic mexican restaurant very popular among mexicans so there might be a wait depending on the time and day, so plan accordingly. The food is delicious, everything from pozole, quesadillas, sopes. If you are looking for a real... More

Very typical, cheap Mexican eatery, bistroy style food. Simple and very greasy. Not recommended for people who don't tolerate fat or are vegetarians.

So I always tend to read TA and see what's in the area for cheap eats and what not. So I can't say I was overly thrilled about this place as I have definitely had better. Finding this place wasn't hard at all, and inside was a packed house (good sign). I ordered the carne flautas, the service was pretty... More

I frequent this place for lunch, because, lucky for me, it's located rather close to my office. I've had the flautas, pozole, quesadillas, and today I tried the sope for the first time and it's my new favorite. I usually pair this with some nice horchata. I do wish they had agua de jamaica, but I guess you can't have... More

ok so everytime I come to Mexico City, I must come to eat here. there is a bit of a wait time depending on the time you go. BUT it is worth it. The pozole, the chicharron with avocado, and a Modelo Especial are THE best combinations. Oh and you cant forget about that "Abuelita Flan", that is to die... More

Many guidebooks refer to this spot as real source. It had a great POZOLE vegetable style for sure, but we tried other dishes all of which were just fair. Bill was WAY cheap and tha was nice. Service was good, but this matters little if food is average.

We were staying for 4 nights in an apartment around the corner, and had read the great reviews for La Casa de Tono - so we tried it. And, we loved it! A short wait, and we were soon delivered to a large table for 7 of us. Great attentive service. The menu is printed on the table, and the... More

the hotel holiday inn & suites front desk employee recommended this little restaurant since I was asking for a traditional local food not a fancy restaurant so I walk from the hotel to the restaurant like 7 blocks, make the line and wait for my food, super good food, very casual place, everything moves so fast, your place your own...

We were in the Zona Rosa area of Mexico City as tourists (with family and friends), and saw a long line for food at lunch time with what appeared to be mostly local working people on their lunch breaks in line. At dinner time we came back after checking the tripadvisor reviews. We got seats easily and had one of... More
