A classic, authentic and well-aged place for tacos near Coyoacán and San Ángel. The place is very modest, full of locals, and fast-serviced. The place to go if visiting town and craving for real Mexican fast food.

La LECHUZA is a well cherished taco joint by locals. Delicious tacos and soups brought to you very hot (teperature). You can see the cooks grilling chorizos, arracheras and the like. Order the chorizo special and squeeze plenty of lime - delicious. You may slip on the greasy floor, but who cares? Next best thing to eating tacos from street... More

I've lived in Mexico for over thirty years, and have eaten tacos at countless restaurants and corner stands. But I just found this taquería and it takes the prize. Their tacos al pastor are unmatched, and their sauces and aguas are delectable. A real find!

I know this place for the last 25 years and it has not changed at all. The place is simple, friendly, and the tacos are among the best in Mexico City. Portions are generous, service is fast and prices are fine.
