Great Pastor Tacos!!!!

You just can have enough Pastor Tacos at el Tizoncito. Tizoncito is a chain, but the one in Tamaulipas Street (the first) is the best!

The best tacos al pastor without a doubt. Don't even sit down. Just stand next to El Taquero and he will continue serving you tacos until you can't walk. All the salsas are amazing and at the end they will know how many tacos you ate because they'll count the left over papers in your plate. Been eating there for... More

This is my favorite pastor taco in the city. It's perfectly seasoned, with the right amount of pineapple and cilantro. I usually stick with the original. I tried the pastor gringo and didn't care for it as it has a flour tortilla. They bring you a nice selection of sauces, refried beans, and chips to accompany your tacos. The tacos... More

Since becoming vegetarian, eatig out is a challenge; however on this visit to Mexico City, a stop in a traditional taco place was a positive surprise due to the nopales asados they offered. Just delicious.

When a good friend of mine found out I was in Mexico City, he recommended coming here so he could live vicariously through me. The location was only a short walk away from the Red Tree House. The streets reminded us of Barcelona and even some of the areas in New York City where there's a number of apartments and... More

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
