“Best tortas in Oaxaca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I had quite a few tortas in the 10 days I spent in Oaxaca, some in restaurants/cafes and some from street vendors. This was by far the best I had. 20 pesos and delicious. Need I say more.

“Get the cubano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We visited the food truck rather than the restaurant...its a wonderful spot to grab a torta. You can just walk into the park and eat it fountainside....lovely

“Need a quick sandwich. This is the place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This little sandwich stand in Conzatti Park and the puesto around the corner from the Zocalo are both great stops for a grilled sandwich. You can find it on the corner, because of the people grouped around it. You order on the left and get your drink. When your number is called you get your sandwich. In the meanwhile you watch the workers hustle. It's a good show.

“Fantastic tortas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

La Hormiga is always my choice when I need a quick, tasty, filling torta (sandwich). Their bolillos (rolls) are fresh and they have a great selection of ingredients. I highly recommend the Cubana which has everything but the milanese is also a favorite. La Hormiga is on the south east corner of Jardin Conzatti, a lovely park. Take your torta and a cool drink and find a place in the park to enjoy lunch with the Oaxqueños.

“Best tortas in the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

There is always a long line at this torta stand at lunch time..and for good reason! They range from 15 to 30 pesos and are excellent. Plus, they're located in Conzatti park, a nice, relatively quiet place to have lunch.
