We ran across El Tipico last week and stopped in for a quick lunch; it looked very pretty from the street, so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did. I had the Arrachera and my husband had Chile Relleno (carne), they...More

This is where the locals go. We sat in the back where there is a small patio/courtyard. The service was friendly and patient with our Spanglish. We did not hear any English being spoken and that was another plus. The food was very good, loved...More

We went to El Tipico more than once during both our spring and fall trips to Oaxaca. It's a wonderful local place near Llano Park with a different special every day (although they seem to have dishes with mole negro, mole amarillo, mole verde, and...More

All food was excellent and the margaritas...More

We were a group of 6, we got different dishes all of them really good. The service was very friendly but really slow. Prices are high based on what you receive. Nice building. I will come back soon to try another dish.

El Tipico is tucked away on a side street a block away from Llano Park and near the lovely Jalatlaco neighborhood. Local friends in the know say it is one of the best local restaurants in Oaxaca that serves typical home-cooked food. After four months...More

We thought the place really looked nice, lots of flowers, a sheltered garden to eat in if you want, and very clean looking. The hostess (owner?) was very attentive and friendly. But we found the food to be just average (i.e. I guess like the...More

Ask for the menu del dia which features traditional dishes of Oaxaca. There are always several choices of rich, authentic cooking. Don't forget to start off with some typical appetizers. Ask the servers for advice. Take your time and enjoy. This is not a tourist...More
