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

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.

it's a very nice set up, very classy old mexican churreria and you definitely get your money's worth at a piece price of only 3.50mxp, getting cheaper the more you buy... and they're fresh and warm. HOWEVER: I have definitely had waaay better churros around latin america. also they only have the basic option of sugar/cinnamon, but none of the... More
