Recommended on trip advisor, so we gave it a go. Pretty basic cafe with plastic tables and chairs. Tacos were pretty good but nothing too special. 130 for 10 tacos and a soft drink, so pretty good value. OK for a snack I would say.

Get the cochinita pulcones: 10 pesos each and the best thing I ate in the Yucatan. Service is slightly unfriendly but when the food is this good, who cares!

This is an extremely no-frills taqueria that can get kind of crowded with locals. I can't blame them because the food is cheap, fast, and delicious. Worth a stop while walking around Valladolid, but don't expect to sit down for long.

What a little gem!! We found this place as recommended by a local and was not disappointed. There was no menu very simple to order easy option of beef or chicken. There was next to no wait with good service. Try the polcams!!

A very basic place with just a few plastic tables, located a couple of blocks from the main square. They do only cochinita pibil, but in three ways: tacos, sandwiches and these small cornmeal dumplings. All were delicious. Very inexpensive. We plan to visit again!

Pork tacos are simple but extremely delicious! We do not speak Spanish and the owners we very patient with us. There was only one choice for the filling, pork, and for the base you could chose bread, tacos, or something else which I still am...More

Stopped by El Gallo after reading some rave reviews on tripadvisor. El Gallo didn't let us down. The cochinita pibil was fantastic, and we loved the polcanes. El Gallo isn't a fancy place and have a super simple menu (cochinita pibil as either tacos, tortas,...More
