Wonderful tacos

I loved the place. many taco choices. I tried Carnitas with buche (amazing), pastor and lengua (tongue tacos). I would like to had more space in my stomach to eat more. I definitely will go again in my next visit to Guadalajara.

Try the taco dorado with buche. Great and prompt service. Clean casual atmosphere. Located in Providencia, one of the nicest neighborhood in the city.

This restaurant is well known for it's traditional home style Mexican tacos and now I know why. I ordered three different variations of their tacos and all were delicious. The restaurant is set up as a café, very close together seating, but what you give up in ambiance is made up in the great food.

I am big fan of tacos and have tried them all over Mexico. The tacos at Providencia are among the best. I was taken there by a local business associate who told me the place was his favorite and he was right on. It is not a fancy place but seems to be favored by locals; my kind of place.... More

First of all that I'm surprise that the "Gringo Community" has even heard of this place? Mostly a "wealthy Tapatio hangout" they have by far the best and cleanest Taco Resturant in all of Guadalajara. A great place to get a quick bite to eat, but at times you might be waiting at the door to get a seat at... More

We took a taxi here and were not disappointed. I had pastor, steak, and rib (castillo) tacos. The steak tacos were loaded with meat. Of the three, i preferred the castillo but all were good. The pastor was my least favorite of the three. We had quick service and the wait was not too long. Definitely worth a try.

I have never had a rib taco before but the concierge at the hotel highly recommended it so I had to try it! My boyfriend and I shared a few steak, al pastor and ribs tacos. Although all were delicious, my favorite was the rib tacos. I also appreciated all the different salsas on each table you can chose from... More

You will stop eating tacos anywhere else if you eat them here. This place truly converted me to be a taco lover and I am so happy that I found this place... It's possible I will go to Guadalajara again just to eat here and the quality is truly out of the world!
