Fancy it ain't. Good food it is. And if price is of concern to you -- it's not only inexpensive, it's cheap! Super place. Mix with the local population. Lots of fun and delicious!!

This place is cheaper than street food. They only have two kinds of tacos. And they're both pretty bland. but adding the green sauce on top makes them delicious and spicy! You can also have as much of the typical salad, with carrots and jalapeños,...More

Stopped here while trying to get all five types of tacos we were searching for. What a great place for the classic “basket tacos” or tacos suaderos (sweaty bc they are steamed)! You get in line, tell the guy how many tacos you want and...More

The tacos were decent, what sets this place above the average rating is the price - only 7 pesos per taco, which is a really good deal. Directly on Medero street, a pedestrian only street with a lot of live.

Cheapest tacos by far that we found and really tasty! 7 pesos each and plenty to choose from. Worth a visit when in Zocalo

We ordered pork tacos. Each taco was 7 pesos. They were delicious. The line is out the door but the service quick. Some of the tastiest tacos I’ve enjoyed in Mexico.

Just arriving in Mexico City after a long flight, I was hungry and this was the quick convenient option. Wow! The line out the door tells you it’s good. Verdict: pretty delicious, not pretty tacos. Remember to help yourself to the salsas & accompaniments on...More

Let's get one thing straight out of the way - these are not the best tacos in town. They're good and not that expensive, but not the best. The stuffing is ok but I just don't like the serving appearance. Doesn't look aesthetical at all...

Simple and delicious Canasta style tacos, full of flavor and fantastically worthy for the little amount of money you pay.

If you like street food that is dirt cheap and very good this is your place. There is usually a line but it moves quickly. They only do tacos. You pay for the number of tacos and drinks you want as you enter. You will...More
