Las Ranas is a super stop for tacos in Puebla. It's location is handy and the food is very good. The service isn't super great but things seem to move along & it is a taco joint after all. When in Puebla one must try...More

These tacos are definitely the best I've had in Puebla, they are tasty....BUT I think some people on here are getting a bit carried away calling them 'best tacos in Mexico', or maybe they have only tried tacos from this region (Puebla/Mexico City area). Anyone...More

We enjoyed our lunch here. It was very busy and we had the last available table but the atmosphere was fun and enhanced by passing musicians and the sight of meat grilling on the large spits at front of all the crowded tables. Food was...More

Very busy place, filled with locals so quite excited. The food was really tasty, and despite how busy they were service was quick. It's not a pretty place, and very loud. But good for a pit stop to refuel. Reasonably priced.

It is located just around the corner of the street 5 de Mayo in Puebla (the most important walking street) It is 2 restaurants.. one right across the other.
They specialize in tacos but they serve a few other dishes too.
It is by far the best tacos in the city and I have invited friends from Greece, Norway and all over Mexico and everyone loves them so I can't understand why they aren't listed in tripadvisor yet. They are the best known tacos in the city I am sure
