Thoroughly enjoyed the food here; the place is small but atmospheric, with attentive and friendly service, and the pork sandwiches were fantastic! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend

A simple and relaxing small restaraunt with delicious food and great service. They specialise in hearty sandwiches fillled with various styles of pork with amazing toppings.

Friendly and attentive service. Highly recommended.

This is a tiny place across the street from the JW Marriott- a few small bistro tables outside and seating for perhaps 16-20 inside. We had read some reviews and had to try it. It’s not fancy, but if you like pork sandwiches, this is the place to eat.

Hostess: a waiter let us select our table.

Food: Generous portions of excellent food. We split an order of the potatoes and the New Yorker sandwich for a late lunch. Both the sandwich and the potatoes were fantastic! The pork belly was perfect, the field egg had just the right amount of funniness in the yoke, just perfect and tasty.

Drinks: cold beer is available.

Service: good service. Our young waiter wanted to practice his English and was really nice.

Why an "excellent" rating? The New Yorker sandwich and potatoes were terrific.

Me and my boyfriend found this spot through Yelp, we wanted to try something other than seafood (we're both huge seafood fans). He is from Mexico while I'm from Florida. We both fell in love with this place and will be back each time we visit Mexico City for the San Francisco sandwich and potatoes!! Service was friendly, bathrooms were clean & free too.

I'm going to start with the roasted potatoes...no, wait, I'll start with the sandwich....oh, maybe I need to start with the slaw. Dang it! It was all too good. I had part of a San Francisco and a Chilanga sandwich and i can't decide which I liked better and then when you follow it up with a Papas Puercas you are going to be fully satisfied...unless you push the limit and order their creamy slaw too...which is what we did. Portions were great, flavor was great, hoping now for a new excuse to get back to Mexico City.
