I am not sure if this is the specific restaurant I ate in but this chain offers a nice taco experience in several locations around Queretaro. A local colleague took me here for lunch and I enjoyed the experience. My pork taco plate with a bottle of water was less than 100 pesos ($7.00 US). I... read more

I used to be a big fan of the Queretaro place and whenever I got the chance, I (used to) drive to get my taco fix!! (is two hours driving!!) So, when they advertise the opening in my home town (San Luis potosi) I was really happy until the very bad service ruined my experience!! At first, the valet parking... More

I have worked in 9 different states in Mexico and tacos are among one of my favorite foods. El Pata tacos are truly the best I have ever eaten, and nothing else even comes close. The sirloin and pork that is shaved off of the rotating "gyro" cookers is truly amazing, so much so that I had to order two... More

This is one of the best places to eat tacos in Queretaro city, you can choose from a wide menu and don't forget to have an "Agua de Horchata" Of course all the infraestructure this place has represents an increase in the tacos' price. You have to at least try it once.

I came to this Tacos el Pata restaurant due to an advice from a friend. It is close from the Queretaro Downtown. I really recommend to try it once, you are going to love the real tacos. There is also another location of Tacos el Pata in Bernardo Quintana near from a Fiesta Americana hotel crossing the boulevard Bernardo Quintana.

Actually I came across this place because my friends celebrated my birthday here. I´m not a great fan of tacos but this one, is the exception of the rule. First of all the prices are rather enticing and the service is superb. You may even order wine not just beer. No matter what you order it's just scrumptious. The decoration... More

Considering the options available to try traditional food in Queretaro, this place is a common fast food place; not bad, but not very good, average service, average quality; not so average price. there are much better options for the price and service.

walking distance from historic city center and quality of tacos make it a must eat if you're in Queretaro.

It's the best taco place in queretaro, but all in all, this would be the third best taco place I've been at. The best thing in the place is definitely the salsas. One thing you MUST try is the "agua de lima" and ask this drink large. You'll even order a second one, it being so good and refreshing. Last... More
