A great place to visit in the old downtown! Inside they offer freshly made churros and hot chocolate. Outside they offer some of the best tacos and tortas in the city! The best plan is to first order your tacos and tortas outside. There is always a line of people but you should get your order in 10 mins on... More

I had been promising my husband churros for ages when we were in Spain and somehow we always missed them. I looked this place up on Trip Advisor and it looked accessible from where we were staying so we took a wander along D.F.s busy streets and past electronic retailers till we reached this place on the corner. Service was... More

El Moro is a quintessential comfort food destination of Mexicans. It's a restaurant that's been in operation since 1939, in the same location, serving sweet sugar-sprinkled churros with hot chocolate to politicians, engineers, movie stars and farmers alike for decades. Going is tantamount to paying homage to tradition and history. The area it's located in is not for everybody-- a... More

Very old and traditional churro place on Eje Central a couple of blocks from the Torre Latino ... they have cheap high quality churros and a pretty decent selection of hot chocolate/coffee/malts to accompany them. The place is ALWAYS packed so be ready to wait as there are no reservations ... particularly... More

This is one of the oldest "churrerias" in Mexico. Located on a very busy downtown street. They offer at least four different types of chocolate. Churros are made all day long so they are always warm and fresh.

Part of the heart of the city, this restaurant makes you feel in another time. Nice and cheap food and churros are awesome, even if you don't eat another thing churros make it worth it.
