I don't like it, the people are so unpolite and the chocolate that they serve has a bad taste and it was cold.

I used to live in Spain, so I've eaten my fair share of churros con chocolate. These are by far the best I've ever had. The chocolate is thick and perfect. The thin churros were perfectly crispy and not greasy at all. They are fried in fresh olive oil each day. We had these Sunday morning before leaving town, then... More

Seems to be back in the 50's in this place where we had amazing churros with cold chocolate and almond granizadas. Soooo good, nothing to add. Go there and order as many churros you can stuff your mouth with.

Nice place to get a coffee or hot cocoa with some churros to make a quick stop and relax. Churros always nicely fried and it's somewhat entertaining to watch the workers how they extrude the dough out of the machine and they cook the final product. If you have a chance, stop here for a while!

Churros are fresh and hot, you can have them with sugar or without. The chocolate, in my opinion, is very good. It is not too sweet and has a more pudding-like texture.

This churreria, a few steps from the main square of Zaragoza, is really a must for all the churros lovers like me! I went there in the early morning, I sat inside this little place still decorated like in the old times and I had a fantastic breakfast with one of the very best chocolate con churros I have ever...

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
