This may not be the best al pastor in town, but it is the best in that area. The place is always busy and the service is pretty good. I think my wife and I had a total of 8 tacos and a couple drinks and it couldn't have been more than 150 pesos, which is fair. My only critique is that there isn't as much meat in the tacos compared to some other places in town.

Yum yum! Inexpensive, delicious al pastor street food, open super late. They give you three salsas with every order, fire roasted, tomato and creamy avo verde? The verde is the best!

El Carboncito is a great place to get some authentic Mexican street food, the Al Pastor is very good... especially in my favorite form of gringa quesadillas (pastor pork, Oaxaca cheese, onions and cilantro)! Yummy... heaven on a tortilla! They are only open later in the evening... that is when most of their customers are out... it is HOT prior to that. say 7:00 pm on or so. Well worth the visit!

First time ever here and the al pastor rivals takos panchos. Never thought I would say that.
So near to where we always stay as well.
It is easy to find and easy to miss you have to be looking right or left when you are at the pemex

This is npw my go to place for an al pastor craving
