We ate at this restaurant while we visited Cuernavaca. We ate dinner there and all we wanted was tacos. Food was good. Prices are average. You can order single tacos or meat by the kilo, that's the cheaper way to eat more for less. Great...More

The water have bugs, it's a shame that the manager never do somethink, the anwser of the staff was "we can't do nothink, we can't control the flys". What for more the stupid anwser that I hear in a long time.

This is one of the oldest and most famous taquerias in Cuernavaca. Definitely a place to try. Since I grew up in a house that is nearby, I've been a frequent customer for a long time. This restaurant is one of the best taquerias I...More

The place is not the best, and the facilities not the one you expect, but you forget those things when you try their food. My favorites ; chicharrón de queso, tacos al pastor, horchata is the best thing to drink and for desserts their ice...More

Our family stops here when we are in Cuernavaca because the place has good food and hefty portions. The staff is very friendly and you can watch your food being made behind the counter. The atmosphere is comfortable and the prices are reasonable.

This use to be a great taco place. It ain't anymore. That food is very greasy and it looks dirty. The service is the worst I've ever seen.

This place is not cheap or particularly outstanding, but definitely worth a visit. The food was really good (and we were 4 really hungry people ordering a wide variety from their menu), and the place carries the great advantage of being one of the few...More

Delicious alambre and tacos al pastor. Love the fried cheese. Its a big hit for new visitors, without pushing the bar to weird cuisine. We came many times with big groups, and they can accommodate the space. A few parking spots available in front. The...More

A casual Mexican-style taqueria specializing in tacos "al pastor". Definitely one of the best places of this type that I've been to in Mexico City or Cuernavaca. It is more traditional in its decor, the service is excellent and the comfort food is delicious. You...More
