It was our last night in Mexico City & our local friends took us to this spot. Was super pleased about the whole experience. The restaurant was super efficient & the overall service & food was great. Super casual environment which I loved; yet, the quality was fantastic. Fell in love with the Sopes (had the steak and mushroom ones).... More

I am still confounded as to why this place is so highly rated by both Mexicans and visitors alike. The renowned pozole really if you get down to it is not that great ... there are many other places that are better. The garnachas/antojitos (finger food) is decent ... but WAKE UP you can get this kind of food much... More

I always make this my first stop when visiting Mexico City to begin my stay with a bowl of their delicious pozole - I ate here twice this time and am sure to eat here many more times in the future

Casa de Toño is a favorite place for locals because of its high standards, low prices, and speedy service. It started out as a mom-and-pop operation years ago, but has expanded steadily, and they now have 13 outlets scattered around Mexico City and into the suburbs to the north. I haven’t been to all of them, but certainly all the... More

Slipped in before the crouds grew while alone on a business trip, enjoyed a great bowl of pozole that arrived in no time with radishes, onions and lettuce. A casual, delicious, hearty and fast meal enjoyed while alone or a group of friends and family. When I left the line snaked down the sidewalk, timing is indeed everything.

I was at the restaurant in Londres (zona rosa) - everyone goes for the pozole but sometimes you may have to wait for over 30 minutes to get in - great food and cheap

i've been to four of this places, and always because the people at work will want somethings fast and easy. Simple food, few selection of tacos, you are here for the soup. well price, it's a Mexican fast food type place.

A suggestion from the concierge at Le Meridien, Casa de Tono has a fast-moving line that blocks the sidewalk. Take a number, and wait surrounded by locals who clearly know bueno comida. Quickly enough, you'll be seated at a table with an inscribed menu. If you think your favorite Mexican place back home is authentic, come here for proper calibration.... More

One of the best meals (and service) I've had in DF. I totally reccommend the place (affordable, clean, fast, nice and delicious), the pozole, the horchata and the flan de leche (best flan I've eaten in a looooong time --- is a dessert BTW----).
