This is a taco loves dream. Fresh, flavorful tacos with many options. The only short coming is you better be prepared to wait in line as they're always busy. You'll know why when you eat here.

Their tortillas are super fresh, you can actually watch them prepare it. They have limited seating so you'll see some people eat on the street. Drinks are also prepared fresh one taco is $24(peso).

If taco be your addiction, read on. Handmade is a prerequisite in Mexico, sure. But when you can smell the ingredients and the finished product, you are hooked, line and all. Its a small taqueria offering a plethora of choices, all of them delicious. The...salsas are spot-on. Its a hop skip and jump from Reforma. The eatery has a long list of offal choices as well as the sausage and bisteak. Clean to the max. Eat with the appendages life gave you, as there is no cutlery.More

I'm a taco snob, and this place was fab. Not far from my hotel, so this became quite dangerous for me. Highly recommend.

This taqueria is walking distance from the hotel Le Meridien. This taqueria was recommended by the staff at the hotel and they were right!! These tacos are absolutely delicious!! The tortillas are handmade, literally there’s a lady making them right then and there! The taqueria...is small but super clean. You order your tacos and then you put whatever you want on them. They have a variety of toppings to add to your tacos, and the salsas are absolutely divine!! I had bistek and chorizo tacos, but even though they were both good, the chorizo was the best I’ve ever had!! Had to get seconds!! The only sad thing was that we found this taqueria on our last day in the city, wish we had found it earlier!! My mouth is literally watering thinking of the tacos!! The walk there from reforma was short and we felt very safe! I would definitely recommend this taqueria!!More

2 blocks walk from hotel Le Meridien, this place is such a hidden gem. You will see line outside where the locals get their food! The longer line side serves bisteak, pork, and Mexican sausage (all high quality and delicious). But I also suggest you...try the other side with less people. This side serves the lengua (tongue) and cheek. Both sooooo tender and great quality. Don’t forget to get a fruit drink, just ask them to not add sugar water so you get a refreshing fruit juice instead. This place is clean and forever busy and so reasonably priced. No utensils, but hey, add some hot sauce and eat with your hands for an authentic local experience!More

Passed this restaurant while on a city tour bus and new I had to venture back! The steak tacos were excellent... the best part is you get to put your own salsas , beans or even a potato mixture. Very reasonable price. 4 tacos and...a coke in a bottle.105 pesos =less than $6.00. Only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars was the seating but don’t let that stop you from stopping here!!More

Staying at the Le Meridien virtually around the block, this place fulfilled all my taco dreams!! We were there 4 days/5nights I had these all 4 days. I was SO obsessed, I ran there before we hopped in our taxi to go to the airport....Like I said Obsessed!! You get to pick your meat that is grilled in front of you while the woman with the kind smile sat each day, everyday making fresh tortillas!! The fresh veggies and mashed potatoes (yes mashed potatoes) were all moth wateringly delicious... And....while your tacos are being done, head to the other side and order an amazing fresh fruit smoothie to balance your indulgences, another thing I had every single day. And don't listen to the bogus water thing...they added water to my smoothie every day and never had any issues. Aside from making my belly happy, it will make your wallet sing!! My 2 tacos and 32 ounce smoothie every day was under 3 dollars!! No I am not kidding you!! If you are in the area don't miss it!! Even if you aren't just go!! YUM!!!!!!More
