Excellent traditional food

We look forward to our return to Los Gallos every year. The traditional chicken soup and chicken Pozole are our usual orders. Enchiladas verde and fajitas David are also exceptional.

We look forward to our return to Los Gallos every year. The traditional chicken soup and chicken Pozole are our usual orders. Enchiladas verde and fajitas David are also exceptional. We were saddened this year that Alphonso died in December. Alejandra and their sons continue in the tradition of excellent food and service, of which Alphonso would be very proud.

Los Gallos is a great little restaurant for authentic food at very reasonable prices. Both table seating and "breakfast bar" style.

We visited Los Gallos again this trip and were not disappointed. I had the chicken soup with hard boiled egg - yum - so fresh and packed with chicken and vegetables. My husband had pozole which he raved about. This place is so consistently good and if you haven't been there, you are really missing out. Nothing like hot soup... More

This chicken soup is hearty yet simple, bursting with flavor. The broth is clear yet flavorful. The simple addition of carrot, cheese, avocado and onion in addition to chicken creates an amazing mix. The cheese casserole was also very good. We had this with chicken and mushrooms. It is important to know that there is a daily special offered between... More

Well my wife and I both love Tortilla soup and this little spot was highly recommended by several fellow travelers at our hotel...so we decided to try for lunch one day. It was absolutely broth heaven in our bowl, with shredded chicken and loads of vegetables. It was so good we came back the next week and were not disappointed!... More

Good service and the food was good, known for the chicken soup and Posole. The place is small and open air so it was rather warm. I didn't like the the street venders bothering me while I atr.

We loved it. Basic, but real Mexico, perhaps real Mexico for tourists but seemed pretty authentic. We had very good tacos. The chicken soup was good, but I couldn't quite see what all the fuss is about.

The chicken soup they serve is very tasty. They certainly didn't skimp on the chicken. We tried the enfrijoladas and they were pretty standard, good quality, but nothing outstanding. Overall a comfortable little place, with low prices and pretty good, local foods.
