Tacos are a staple in Mexico! There are plenty of places to go to but this place has good, cheap and clean tacos. I am gringa lover (Pastor meat, cheese and wheat tortillas) Ask for it by saying "doradito el queso por favor" this means they will toast the cheese on the plancha so you get some crispiness. Delish!!! Anyway,... More

A fancy taco stall, tasty food, lots of different options for taco - but.....slow on the service, waiting for ages before being served, not a bad place though

We left the city of Roma and drove to a very near by trendy neighborhood. There are a few of these restaurants in the city. My New York friend who visit Mexico sometimes for work loves this place for the pork tacos... Says it's the best she has had... I tried a cactus taco, a vegetarian option which was pretty... More

We had el pastor at the sidewalk stools here on the corner of Campeche and Tamaulipas in the Condesa neighborhood. Tizoncito has a lot of locations in Mexico City, including another on the same street as this one! But a friend who lived in DF steered us to this one and it was excellent.

Once tried a salad with some chicken on it, second time I tried the tacos. Both times I was satisfied. The food is generally good and the waiters are friendly. Make sure you speak some Spanish though. I had a hard time ordering the first time. Oh also the complementary chips with all the sauces you get are delicious. The... More

Ate at the new Tizoncito behind the Hilton Reforma. Was our first night in the city. All the food was rotten and, to varying degrees , completely inedible. When I attempted to return my very bad smelling alambre de Costilla, the waiter questioned our sincerity . I believe that the problem here is lack of ability of employees to preserve... More

This place had delicious tacos! It is a small restaurant with small food portions at a great price! Will definitely come back on my next trip to Mexico.

This shop actually invented. Class of tacos in the 1960's. They are now a franchise but you can and should visit the original shop in Av Tamaulipas at Condesa neighborhood. Tacos al pastor is a Mexican version of Gyros. The best way to eat them is to stand right next to the guy preparing the tacos. The preparation and serving... More

This corner taqueria claims to have invented Al Pastor. Not sure if it’s true, but the tacos were delicious. We ordered them four, five at a time, the taquero patiently waiting for the rotating spit of meat to slightly sear on the outside before deftly slicing the pork, and then tossing chunks of pineapple onto each taco with a flick...

Tacos al pastor - the great DF institute. This is really all this place does (and they do it well) - so if you are looking for tacos al pastor or some incarnation of "al pastor" then you need to visit. Perfect for a pre or post bar bite.
