“Good Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Good food and good service. Mexican food is not as good or original as it might seem, but it is good. Excellent service. It is annoying if you sit outside due to local vendors walking to your table and trying to get you to buy pirated music CD's and movies. If you are inside, they will also go into the restaurant, very annoying. They have a chain of these restaurants in almost all Central American countries and basically they are all decent.

“Wonderful food - slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We always dine here in Guatemala City, the food is wonderful but the service can be slow. We tend to go to the one in Zona Viva. Margarita's are fresh, the tortillas are being made in front of you. It's definitely a local hangout with many folks on date night.

The food is great authentic street food. Nothing fancy but always great, if you are looking for some street tacos.

“Not good, not pricey... what do you expect?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Tacontento is drunk food period. Staying open until the wee hours of the morning for all the Zone 10 drunkards is this places best bet. Unfortunately, Tacontento is everywhere, not just in Zone 10. It has even reportedly made its way to the states. This is crappy Mexican food, nothing more. Not to be confused with a crappy Mexican restaurant that serves up delicious Mexican food, this place is just not worth going to unless you are drunk and starving in zone 10 and it is past midnight.
