We had read about the churros and thick chocolate in Zaragoza, but it had somehow skipped our mind until we saw people spilling out of Churreria la Fama onto the street while walking back from the Cathedral late on a Saturday afternoon. What a stroke of luck. Despite the crowd we were able to order quickly and find places to... More

If you want to try authentic typical Spanish churros with thick, delicious hot chocolate, this is a great place to do it. It's usually very busy with locals (always a very good sign) and the tables are fairly densely packed, but it's worth it. You can choose normal size or larger churros. with or without sugar. The only possible reason... More

If you want to experience a genuine churreria, with wonderful fresh churros and thick hot chocolate "a la tassa", don't miss La Fama, just few steps from Basilica El Pilar. In the peak hours (6-7 pm in winter) you will need to dispute the few seats with aged local couples, noisy Zaragozan families with children, but that is part of... More

This little gem is well established and always packed with locals. We visited late morning and had to wait only a couple of minutes for a seat. Although I've had churros in a number of places over the years, these were superb. It was great seeing big swirls of the dough being piped from a large machine into the fryer... More

We are Asian and have never been treated as poorly as we were here. We waited for more than 5 minutes, right in front of the counter. Everyone working here ignored us. Other customers walked in, were greeted and their orders were taken, right over our heads. We just stood there, trying to get someone's attention. Finally, I resorted to... More

I loved this place, it's close to the Cathedral (where everything seemed to be happening when I was there) in a side street where you can still sit outside and enjoy people walking by. These are not the usual churros you find around the US, they are not filled with anything and they really would not gist with those thinly... More

Being from from Los Angeles, CA you here the word Churro and you think long fried doughnut with sugar and cinamon. Well in Zaragoza Spain, its almost like that. Churros and Hot Chocolate seem to be a morning staple here. The place was busy and the machine was churning Churros all the time we were there enjoying our coffee and... More
