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.

Trying the churros with chocolate in this place is a must full of tradition when visiting Mexico City downtown.

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

My girlfriend had never visisted el moro so I took her there. Everything tasted great but we found out that the hot chocolate and the churros had a lot of fat!!!!

This place does nothing but churros and chocolate, 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year. The place looks and feels like mid 20th century Mexico city. If you go to down town at night, try and stop by for a quick snack. You will not regret it.

We rambled in here while on the Trip Advisor walking tour of historic Mexico City. It's rather nostalgic with lots of waitresses in diner style uniforms. We ordered a couple coffees and churros in broken spanish (the waitresses that helped us were very kind) and neither disappointed. I would not consider this a place to eat a meal but an... More
