Absolutely loved the tacos al pastor con queso (with flour tortillas - worth the extra pesos!). Best I've had in Mexico for our last day in this country - perfect ending! Condiments and salsas provided are so flavoursome and generous in size. Friendly service, loved...More

My wife and I have been here at least 20 times. Always good. Honestly we’ve eaten tacos al pastor everywhere and these are the best. We always ask for them with cheese a la plancha. Love their salsas, especially the green chili sauce. Nice having...More

I will never forgive them for giving me raw meat in my tacos and was very sick. Disgusting. This place used to be good but not anymore

We had a few things from the menu all were good! But in the category "exceptional" and absolute "must try" is the Taco al Pastor and Taco chorizo! Very cheap prices and very busy, expect to queue at peak hour.

By far the best tacos I have ever had. My Spanish teacher, a local, told me about this place. I went back twice after that with friends, and they also went back twice! It's casual and affordable, loved by locals and tourists alike. There were...More

Definitively best tacos in San Cristobal. They open in the evening and the place is usually full. That's a sign that the food must be good. The service is fast and efficient. The place is frequented rather by locals, not much of foreign tourists but...More
