The best Tortas we've ever had. We tried the chorizo, tinga, chili relleno and salchicha which were all delicious! The Quesillo is optional for all of them, but I personally prefer them without because it made them more chewy then I like. Either way you can't go wrong.

Fantastic tortas! Fast service, clean, tasty and cheap, what could be better?! Everything is great but our favorite was the doble queso, manchego and quesillo. Best grilled cheese ever!

So good that we decided to come back for lunch tomorrow. I ordered Cubano tortas (no frijol which is the bean spread) for 32 pesos and my husband ordered... More

I decided to give is place a try when I saw how popular it is among locals. I was glad I did. The food is tasty and cheap, and you can eat it in the pretty park where this stand is located. Recommended!

I found this place thanks to trip advisor and thankfully it was just a stones throw from our hotel. We had the res (beefsteak) and chicken tinga tortas. It's a cheap tasty meal to be enjoyed in the park nearby

This is a best place to have tortas when in Oaxaca. Try the Cubano it is just out of the world. Try and get there as soon as possible as if they run out they close and they leave.

This Oaxacan 'chuckwagon' lives up to it's reputation. The lineups seem to start at noon and continue til ? but the line is very fast-moving. You place your order with La Senora who takes your money and gives you a slip of paper with your order on it. Then after a short wait you are asked if you want it... More

We'll add to the shout-outs for this small and very popular food cart at the edge of Conzatti Park - one of our best meals in Oaxaca. Delicious Cubano torta, and the park is such a pleasant place to sit & enjoy the good food. Forget all the $$$ places written up in the city guides - this kind of... More
