This place definitely has one of the best al pastor tacos in CDMX. They are open only after 8pm but it is definitely worth a visit no matter what time. Meat was tasty and seasoned amazingly, they are a bit pricier than average taqueria in...More

What makes Vilsito's al pastor tacos stand out is how amazingly thin the pork slices are expertly carved, which gives them a lighter taste. Their horchata is also one of the best I've ever had! The rice taste is prominent and is not too sweet....More

This is the most under-rated taqueria in CDMX. At daytime it's a car workshop and at night it sells the best tacos al pastor of the city. They also seel beef and other kind of tacos and tortas, but their specialty is tacos al pastor;...More

Hands-down the highlight of the trip. Mechanic shop by day and a taco spot at night. You pay at the register and tell him how many tacos you want. He tells the guy at the al pastor spit and then you walk over and grab...More

Opens 8pm - late. During the day it's an auto body shop, at night it turns into the best al pastor tacos in the city. Order from the guy in the middle (he's the spit-master). They have beer.

This is a great experience and probably the best meal we had when we were in town. The al pastor is cooked perfectly and I love getting the gringo with al pastor. The food comes out very quickly and it's open late. You can grab...More

Popped in at 9pm a few days ago. Food was delicious, decently priced (though not mega cheap), food came out fast, great service, but unfortunately nowhere to sit. If you’re happy to stand, 100% recommend. We will be back before we leave :)

I've been eating nonstop in CDMX, and so when a friend said these are the best Al Pastor tacos of course I was eager to try them. In fact he is 100% right. Part of the fun here is watching the guy assembling the tacos...More

Car repair shop during the day, taqueria after 8pm, popular place very busy but fast service. On the sidewalk, cool vibe. Tacos are good, gringas are better. Not the cheapest but among the best in this 30 years old taqueria.
