If you like street food then you need to check this place out! They make tortas! That’s it. But with numerous types of fillings, all melted together with delicious gooey cheese! Can highly recommend the chorizo and queso. All for the bargain price of 27...More

Este tienda de tortas es mi favorito! I always ordered ''queso y puerco'' and ''agua de jamaica''. The price was very kind for students like me. And all the staff worked hard with smiling. Sadly, I'm in Japan, but I'd really like to visit there...More

Wonderful, nicely toasted, tasty tortas. We stopped by twice, last dash on the way to the airport! Delicious fillings, and esp good spicy pickled veggies. Many people were eating two!

These guys work hard to provide the tourists with some nice tortas. Big variery of stuffings. All fresh, prepared on the spot. 20-40 pesos for a torta. Recommended if you are in Oaxaca near Parque El Llano.

Two locations - a food truck in Conzatti Park and a sit down hole in the wall on Trujano just west of the zocalo. Same menu. Great tortas!

They seem to have customers all day long, but the service is still quick. I'm addicted to the pierna de puerco, and the ham and egg is a good breakfast torta. For $2 or less these may be the best value in town.
