Try their 'Huequito Especial,' a mountain of delicious meet with onions and chilis served on a series of little tortillas. Not a bad price, pretty good and friendly service, and you'll probably go back again, and again, like I did.

Great and fast service. We tried the tacos pastor and the special taco which were both excellent. All the sauces are already on the table. You should try them all!

This tiny place offers some of the best al pastor tacos I have ever had... and I eat a lot of tacos. The place is quite small, but packs a lot of punch. They only sell pastor and they do it right. Be sure to get the beer 'misil' which is 3 liters of beer and they had a promo... More

Nothing like a pile of meat with cheese on top. The meat was lean and well seasoned. The condiments were great. This is definitely not fine dining, but the flavors are excellent and well worth the stop for lunch.

The tacos al pastor, shepherd's tacos, here are the best that I have ever had, and I have had quite a few. The tacos al pastor of the Huequito are special in that, rather than with the now traditional pineapple, they are served with a sour orange sauce. The final result is excellent. The Huequito has a nice little patio... More

The food was okay but that waiter who came to my table was apparently incapable of a smile or a greeting or a thank you. He was either arrogant, angry, or just having a bad day. I was tempted to put his name here but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he was just having a bad... More

Very small restaurant in the very centre of the city close to many amenities. You can have the traditional "tacos al pastor" (traditional tortillas filled with your choice of meat plus the addition of a slice of pineapple) and a variety of other traditional Mexican food. Probably one of your best choices for a centric outlet if you need a... More

The best Mexican food i've had in Mexico City! The tacos are divine and are stuffed with tons of meat and there are eight kinds of salsa to try!

Our hired tour guide took us here. The al pastor tacos were soo good, but the mushroom soup was too salty. Ambiance is fine, it's clean and staff is very attentive.

Staying in Tlalpan

Neighbourhood Profile
Tlalpan
Time seems to have frozen in several areas that still remain true to what Tlalpan once was, but the clock is still ticking in the relaxed environment that makes it the perfect neighborhood for friends, couples and families who love to explore at their own pace. Plaza de la Constitución is where everyone gathers on weekends to listen to live music and where some of the best coffee shops, restaurants and bookstores satisfy the foodies of the area. Natural beauty such as the lush forest of Ajusco are perfect for those who love to keep in touch with the outdoors.
