5 meat tacos for a great price. It came with onions also. The tower of salsa is amazing. Super spicy, I only ate until the third, I didn't have the courage to taste the last one.

Pastor tacos is my go to and these were fantastic. Great salsa accompaniments as well. Popular with locals as well. A variety of typical Mexican staples if tacos are not your thing but can't go wrong with those little piles of deliciousness.

If you're looking for traditional, simple, Mexican tacos, this is a great place. They are very tasty, small in size so the plate of 5 would be good if you're hungry. I always prefer al pastor.

One step up from street food this place is great if you want a proper sit down meal. Lots of options and its all very tasty. The place is also usually packed with locals so its better than eating in line of those tourist trap restaurants.

While walking in town I stopped in for a light meal. I got 5 of the tacos al pastor with multiple salsas to suit your tastes. That and a bottle of water cost me less than $4.00 USD. The tacos were wonderful, the tables clean and the service fast. You may get some street hawkers walking in to sell you... More

Delicious alpastor and sirlon (beef) tacos, good price and friendly service. We are 2 days in a row and didn't get sick which is always a worry with traveling and eating out.

I was initially put off by the looks of a functional modern, but large, fast food joint. But it turned out to be an excellent choice. So many items I really love on the menu , that the waiter had to keep returning while I decided. Ended up with burritas pastor, bistek tacos and frijoles ranchero. All excellent and filling....

While this place looks more like a food court than a restaurant, it's definitely worth a visit. My husband really enjoyed the Sirloin taco's and I happily ordered a vegetarian platter with corn tortilla's. The service was good and the meal was relatively cheap (M180 for two). There were plenty of locals in the place so it must be a... More
