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...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 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.

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
