Tasty and well priced for the upscale neighbourhood. Tacos and Tortillas are tasty and come fast and furious. Drinks by single or pitcher. Good for families and larger groups... Good luck and enjoy.

Fantastic variety of tacos. I fell in love with the fried cheese tacos called costras. Very close to downtown in the Condesa neighbourhood. Very friendly staff.

This Farolito location has been in service for many years, and the dining room certainly shows its age. The quality remains high with delicious pastor meat, one of the most tender and flavorful pastors I have tried. The prices are a bit high. We paid...More
