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

This place is great! They offer churros and hot chocolate and not much else, but they don't need to offer anything else. The churros are delicious, and there's a variety of hot chocolates (which originated in Mexico). They've been open 24/7 since 1935! Like I said in the title, this place reminds me of Mexico City's version of Cafe du... More

I had the traditional churros with Mexican hot chocolate and a milkshake. Everything was delicious and served very quickly. I would love to come back and try the French and Spanish hot chocolates, which my neighbors commented on being quite good. The only thing is that the place is quite noisy and crowded. Not an ideal location for a date... More

Near Mexico City down town. Known all over because of their wonderful churros, mexican pastry. And the hot chocolate is unforgettable! It comes in different styles according how sweet or concentrated you like it. Other menu options are good.

LOS CHURROS AQUÍ....wow! Son fenomenales! No conozco bastante sobre los churros en general para decir que son los "mejores de la ciudad", pero creo que el ambiente sí es lo mejor. Es decir, es un lugar donde se puede ver cómo se hacen los churros desde el principio hasta que comerlos!!! También tiene azulejos adentro creo, y el chocolate y... More
