Nice restaurant. Tia Calla has more than one restaurant in Taxco. I recomend the one near the busstation because of the great view on Taxco. The one at zocalo is in a basement. The food is also good though!. I recomend the flautas. Jummie!

I agree with the others who praised this place. Friendly, helpful staff for those of us posole virgins. Choice of portion sizes, cheap, very tasty. Decent Chilean red wine by the glass. Right off the Zocalo in a corner. Highly recommend.

Great pozole at a great price. I've had pozole in many places and this is the best in Mexico for me. It has no view nor ambiance inside, just good food. If you don't like chicharones, remember to ask them to leave them off, as they add plenty to your bowl. Great serving size, not too huge like in some... More

Actually visited twice in 24 hours because the food was that good. We had Pozole on our first visit. It was possibly the best food I had throughout my entire month in Mexico, and that's really saying something. The next time I tried the green enchiladas. Also very nice. This place is very unassuming, but so worth it! Great prices... More

This is a typical Mexican restaurant. Pozole is the house speciality. We tried it and it was good. Pozole is a type of soup with corn seeds and meet. It is said it is a prehispánica type of food. Prices are good for somebody in a budget.

If you want red or green pasole go for a late lunch (before 3:00pm) on Thursday. Otherwise you will have a choice of only "blanco" which is clear broth - but also very good when augmented with seasonings provided.

ONe of the top restaurants in Taxco! It's just a few stpes away from Santa Prisca, in a corner, just walk down the satairs...Variety of typical dishes, well served and very good priced. A must is the POZOLE, or the tacos dorados...for those with a sweet tooth just ask for a slice of Mango pie.....you'll see both tourists and locals... More

We were excited to try the different pozoles but learned those are only on certain days - so we had the house special which is offered every day. It was very tasty. The atmosphere is very low key. It was late (almost 9pm) and the zocalo was very quiet. So we weren't sure how many restaurants would still be open.... More

Go here for the pozole. Comes in 3 sizes. Medium is enough, large if you are hungry. Make sure to order sides. Crema, chese, tostados, guacamole. Pozole comes with chicharones on top. Room is downstairs, small window, no view. But the pozole is good and the prices are fair. RIght on the main square, in the corner.

I always stop there, when I stay in Taxco. They have different types of pozole, and I've never been disappointed! It's fresh, and served with all the things served with it - oregano, chili pepper, radishes, onions, lettuce.... I like all 3, but prefer the red version. I could do without the pork rind served with it, but it tastes... More
