“Overpriced Tacos”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

I went to Farolito last year with my Fiancee's family because the place we had originally planned on going to was closed. I really don't want to knock the restaurant that much, as the service is always good and fast, and the food is good and tasty, but my problem with it is that you can get comparable food (or better) from pretty much an decent mom n pops/family run taco restaurant in the city. I'm not saying that the prices are insanely high, as $10-15/person in most restaurants is very cheap, but for tacos in Mexico City you should never really expect to pay anymore than $5-10, and that is the problem with Farolito.
