Excellent food and service, a true find!

Here with family. Food consistently excellent, friendly and efficient service, prices less than half what you would pay in the more touristy areas. Traditional Oaxaca fare, very well executed. Walk the couple of blocks from the zocalo, it's worth it!

Reasonally priced, very good food, you have to try a pozole. If you have a hangover this is the place to go!

We really enjoyed our dinner and an additional lunch at Don Juanito. They really went out of there way to make sure our mother (87 years old) had everything she needed. They explained the menu well and we loved it. Delish chicken on tortillas. The cheese, Oaxaca cheese, need I say more?

After spending the day searching for a great meal, and not succeeding, this was a welcome change! It was recommended by someone we met at the craft beer bar; I'm so glad that we talk to him. The food is authentic, delicious, and very reasonably priced. Additionally the atmosphere is attractive, and pleasant. It is very close to the Zocalo,... More

Good prices on the beer, lovely benches by open air windows and tasty tacos all at a good price - what more need I say?! Top it all off with good and friendly service. This is the place for lunch after walking the town.

The Don Juanito located on M. Bravo 216 was our go-to place for lunch, dinner or a snack. We never made it to their other locations. This tacqueria is pleasant but don't expect an exceptional experience in Oaxaca. If you want good service and good food like tacos, pozole, guacamole, and table salsas then stop by here. We ate here... More

This is one of the best places for pozole in Oaxaca and I thoroughly recommend it. It is a comfortable restaurant to eat at, but we usually just order delivery if we are having a night in. They usually have both types of pozole (white and red), red already having chilli mixed into the sauce from the beginning and white... More

First of all, there are 2 of these, one on the corner of JP Garcia and Zarazoga (smaller, somewhat more limited menu), and the other (nicer) one around Las Casas and 20 de Noviembre close to the Zocolo. We tried the one on Garcia first and thought it was good, although nothing was really breathtaking. Good big jarra de limonada.... More

We visited one night after eating a substantial lunch, wanting nothing more than a few tacos for dinner. This was the perfect place. They offer a wide variety of tacos (along with many other choices) which were delivered to our table after a very short wait. The tacos are prepared in an area right in one of the dining areas...

We were recommended this place by our hotel for some Pozole. This is a nice restaurant, a little more up market then the standard cantinas. There is a fairly large range of food to choose from and the service was fast and very good. However the food was ok, nothing special The pozole here was not very good, I would... More
