Best service ever for a Mexican restaurant

The title isn't an exaggeration. From the host on the host receiving you downstairs to the fast service on the main dining room. The quality is good as they're not compromising it for the quickness of the plate served. What is funny, is that you feel that you're in one of those collective cheap... read more

Best Pozole in Mx City as certified by the locals, lots of locations around the city but each one always has a wait. Sopes were good as well, as was flan abuelito. Large Portions. English menu on request.

Be prepared to queue to get in, and go with a local if you don't have Spanish as this place is kitted out for locals. Their are dozens of small tables dotted around the place and what looks like twice the amount of waiters. There is no fancy stuff here in terms of service, just a promise that the food... More

If you have never tried Pozole then this is the place that you have to go. It is cheap, fast and delicious. As simple as that. The ambiance is very very casual. Be prepared to wait in line but the turn over is very fast. The wait is well worth it. A must visit if you want to experience the... More

This is a lively hole-in-the-wall that was thankfully a few steps from our Hotel Geneve on Londres. Take a number and stand with the other hungry folks on the sidewalk but the wait time is short. The menu is painted or printed on the table. Then fill out your own order slip and voila! some of the best food to... More

I got a great experience enjoying a delicious "Pozole" which is a typical pre-Columbian dish made of Pork, chicken, turkey, chili papers and other seasonings with lemon and salsa. I could have a very nice time with my friends in a typical Mexican "merienda" I had to be ready to spend a lot of time waiting for table, but if... More

We went on Christmas day during off-peak meal hours and still had to wait for a table. Menus are printed on the tables. Had their signature soup, a set of tacos, and a quesadilla. Served with a beer and that bloody-mary-style drink. The servers were literally running up and down and service was really fast. Did not speak Spanish so... More
