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!

Our friends in Mexico took us to La casa de Toño and we loved it! We had many things to eat, but pozole was remarkable! it tasted very good, as well as the tortillas, guacamole and all the other things we had. El flan de la abuela is the best way of ending your meal! home made, delicious! I would... More

Yes, the posole is fantastic, but we tried different menu items during different visits and everything was great. The line can be long, but it goes fast and well worth the wait. Staff is very efficient, served quickly, and the price is incredibly reasonable.
