Please find your way to eat this delicious taco arable. I went with my food guide who said this is the spot to savor these delicious savory treats in this town. I wish I could have gone back.

Loved this local place. Basic canteen style restaurant. The pastor tacos were delicious and extremely filling. At 25 pesos each, I only needed 2 so was happy with a meal for 50 pesos! Went back another day and had a torta which was fab
