We ate at this restaurant while we visited Cuernavaca. We ate dinner there and all we wanted was tacos. Food was good. Prices are average. You can order single tacos or meat by the kilo, that's the cheaper way to eat more for less. Great salsa and tortillas.

The water have bugs, it's a shame that the manager never do somethink, the anwser of the staff was "we can't do nothink, we can't control the flys".
What for more the stupid anwser that I hear in a long time.

This is one of the oldest and most famous taquerias in Cuernavaca. Definitely a place to try.

Since I grew up in a house that is nearby, I've been a frequent customer for a long time. This restaurant is one of the best taquerias I know. It has hand made tortillas and even hand made BLUE corn tortillas (which are hard to find and are fantastic).

My personal favorites are:
Chicharron de queso
Pastor parrilla
Queso Fundido
Chuleta Adobada

Although you can't go wrong. And the service is good!

The place is not the best, and the facilities not the one you expect, but you forget those things when you try their food. My favorites ; chicharrón de queso, tacos al pastor, horchata is the best thing to drink and for desserts their ice creams are the best! ( try the one of Mamey, simply delicious)

Located conveneiently on the main drag in Cuernavaca. Dont order more than one dish...they are HUGE! The adobada and arrachera dishes are my favorite. I cant finish one, so if you order two you will have leftovers. Really inexpensive and the staff is right there to make sure everything is ok. Wash it all down with a tall glass of horchata!
