At home or in the taco store - enjoy their great tacos al pastor or volcanos! The service is always good and the food tastes awesome! One of my favorite taco places in Mexico City!

Great Tacos al Pastor, good choice for tacos, caldos and botanas. Good value, not expensive and good service. I used to go there before they become a restaurant, they were just a Kiosk, I could eat there everyday in my business trips.

The first thing you'll notice when you walk into this popular Roma Sur taqueria is the large menu on the wall with over a hundred taco options, including Los Parados' specialty, an assortment of tacos volcan. Volcan style tacos are typically al carbon (grilled) meats served on a tortilla with melted cheese and other ingredients. Everything is good here! Open... More

This gem was located right across the street from my hotel and we went twice to enjoy the excellent tacos al pastor at Los Parados. Service was prompt and the tacos were excellent. Others in our party ordered enchiladas along with some other sides. Everyone left happy and very satisfied. I will probably stay at the hotel again just to... More

Don't forget to order your "chicharrón de queso", pan fried cheese that is reduced to a thin layer of toasted cheese. Their hat sauces are great.

Los Parados (Or the Stood-Up People) is a small and very famous taco shop on the corner of Monterrey and Baja California (Eje 3 Sur) in the Colonia Roma Sur of Mexico City. They in my opinion have some of the best meat tacos in the city ... the only ones that compare for me are the "Tacos Atlixco" (officially... More

If you want the experience of a real traditional taqueria and feel unnerved from just walking up to any shop on the street, this is a good place to go to. Their tacos al pastor are wonderful, as are the other meat dishes (costilla, jugo de carne is a must). For vegetarians, you can try the volcanes, queso fundido con... More

I had the Bistec con Queso tacos & the Chile Poblano con Queso tacos. They were delicious . Sometimes you will even see some Mexican celebrities. The last time I went I even saw a few Bands that played in the VIVe Latino 2013.This taco place is mostly always packed but its worth the wait :)
