We went their for a quick night fix. The Tortas were great, very filing and tasty. The Naranjata (Orange drink with mineral water) was not the best I tried in Oaxaca. The service was good but could be friendlier. P.S The WC was disgusting.

Tortas are their specialty, but they also serve up other Mexican dishes. All the food and drinks we tried were very nice, especially their malteadas (milkshakes). Those are to die for. The service is excellent, and prices are good. Would recommend for a cheap and...More

We loved this place - many different types of pozole. My husband has tried several as we travel through Mexico, and he declared the Guerrero the best yet! Kids tortas were good too. All for under $300 !!

Pozole is what one orders here, despite the name. The restaurant opens around 5:00-ish and stays open quite late. The ambience is very plain and basic and the clientele tends to be local. One can select pork or chicken pozole. The bowl comes nice and...More
