The best arab tacos I had ever tasted. They are very good but if you ask for some jocoque with your tacos they taste delicious and if some jocoque is left they have honey and you can eat it as a dessert. Really good experience.

Ate here twice while in Puebla! Tacos are simple but the quality is top notch. Warm pita bread like tortillas with their pork hardly need any condiments. Such a yummy, affordable place to have lunch!

Today I went to try the famous Taco Arabe at the foodcourt at Plaza Angelopolis and the qualitybis very poor, the only reason I qualify them at two and not one is because the taco was not bad.

Yes, these tacos were good but not the great I was hoping for. We found the meat to be tender and tasty, but too salty. Certainly generous portions and the accompanying sauces were also good. We will have to try Tacos Tony, as another reader...More

Several locations in Puebla. One behind the hotel Alhondiga at city center. Their specialty is a fusion of Lebanese and Mexican cuisine which is the "taco oriental" which is a traditional taco on a pita type bread and not a corn tortilla. The Seminas con...More

These tacos are unique, they are served on a pita flat bread and the meat is shaven off off of a "Trompo" right in front of you. Get the Jocoque seco and enjoy a special treat, be careful the hot sause has some kick but...More
