It is located just around the corner of the street 5 de Mayo in Puebla (the most important walking street) It is 2 restaurants.. one right across the other.
They specialize in tacos but they serve a few other dishes too.
It is by far the best tacos in the city and I have invited friends from Greece, Norway and all over Mexico and everyone loves them so I can't understand why they aren't listed in tripadvisor yet. They are the best known tacos in the city I am sure

Good food and decent service

We went to both Ranas restaurant (one is just across the street and down the block a bit) during our recent visit to Puebla. They are sort of basic places and not fancy at all but the food was great if you like tacos Arabes, gringas, torts, etc., etc., etc. They did have some other things like... read more

Las Ranas is a super stop for tacos in Puebla. It's location is handy and the food is very good. The service isn't super great but things seem to move along & it is a taco joint after all. When in Puebla one must try tacos arabes, it's local specialty and Las Ranas do a good one. There are only... More

These tacos are definitely the best I've had in Puebla, they are tasty....BUT I think some people on here are getting a bit carried away calling them 'best tacos in Mexico', or maybe they have only tried tacos from this region (Puebla/Mexico City area). Anyone who has spent a decent amount of time eating around the Yucantan/Quintana Roo area (or... More

This is a great place to eat if you are in Puebla. You must try the tacos al pastor or the must : queso al pastor, the best thing i have ever eat in Mexico ! It opens at 2 a clock. Be on time there is a huge line after.

So delicious! You have to wait because it's usually busy but it worth it! I always order a Brings and tacos al pastor, and of course I can't miss my agua de horchata!

Good cheap tacos. They can be hit or miss with getting you a nice slice of pineapple on their al pastor tacos. When done right, the get 4 stars, but I have probably had 25 al pastor tacos from las ranas and about 20% were missing the pineapple.

You will see a vertical spit spinning al pastor, looking much like shawarma. By all means order an al pastor taco, a delight for a mere 8 pesos. But for me the highlight was a dish of chorizo and cheese with accompanying tortillas. Not the place for a romantic meal, but it is fun, tasty, friendly, and cheap.

We enjoyed our lunch here. It was very busy and we had the last available table but the atmosphere was fun and enhanced by passing musicians and the sight of meat grilling on the large spits at front of all the crowded tables. Food was very easy to order for none Spanish speakers as just needed to tick off on... More

Very busy place, filled with locals so quite excited. The food was really tasty, and despite how busy they were service was quick. It's not a pretty place, and very loud. But good for a pit stop to refuel. Reasonably priced.
