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----).

I didn't realise it at first, but this is a chain with about five across Mexico city. We went to the one in Zona Rosa for dinner. Cheap, fast, and good. Recommended! It's right near our hotel so we'll be going back for sure. It's cheap and cheerful, so probably not somewhere to take a first date, but if you... More

If you want to try something that's traditional Mexican food, then this is the place. Pozole, quesadillas, flautas and more. The service is efficient and kind, the prices are good. Leave some space for dessert, I recommend the flan!
