Quick, easy, inexpensive and DELICIOUS!! The churros are fresh, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Definitely a great treat!

After hours walking Chapultepec park, we felt we had earned a snack before dinner. So we grabbed an Uber from the park to head to El Moro Churreria for some delicious, freshly made rich churros as well as some coffee. We went to the location...More

Great churros freshly made. You can have them with sugar, my favorite or cinnamon. We had 4 long churros one coffee and one cafe con leche, for 80 Mexican pesos. A deal!!!Friendly staff and clean. Luckily it’s right across the hotel.

We went at 9:30 pm on a Saturday. The churros were cold and hard. I requested a fresh order, all they did was grab 4 more from the pre-made pile. This place must survive off the hype, because these were the worst churros I’ve ever...More

All day service, this is great for Hot Chocolate and Churros. Great price and quality ratio. The Mexican hot chocolate and half and half churros ( half with white sugar and half with brown sugar and cinamon ) are great. But you do need to...More

Went along one evening to try the churros as I love them. I can’t say they were the best I had ever had but the place was a real experience. It was packed with locals and obviously a real favourite meeting place. The staff were...More

The churros are made fresh & some of the best we've had. Perhaps each to their own but for us they had just the right amount of 'crunch' (not the right word) on the outside, moisture throughout, & sweetness. We had tortas too, but we'd...More

Just as good as the Roma location (See my review) Get ready for lineups and the Churros and Chocolate come plenty and lots of different modes. Including Ice Cream sandwiches, Mini-Churros, Hot/Cold Chocolate and lots of sauces. Staff friendly and easygoing. Good luck and enjoy.

I have had my share of churros many times in the past. With the high ratings at Yelp and TripAdvisor, I had looked forward to having my fantastic churros and hot chocolate at El Moro. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The churros i had at El...More
