This place was hopping with locals and is a great spot for a quick bite. It is bright and not really big on ambiance but our guacamole and tacos al pastor were simple, tasty and great value!

Informal taceria in Condesa, home to the original and famous El Pastor taco. We were not disappointed, and went back three times. Great selection of spicy sauces and pickles to accompany the tacos. Great value, delicious tacos.
