“Great Birria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

I was in Mexico City for a week, stopped by here at after a museum visit. There are multiple locations through the city. The Birria was really good you can also order it in tacos and they will being you a side of broth. They have live music, from Mariachis to Norteno stuff the atmosphere is lively and more bar like than restaurant. I love the food here.

“Simple, Nice, and Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you like goat meat taco, this is THE place. Their menu is simple and straight forward. The environment is festival style with many other services, such as music and making balloon toys.
It is busy all the time. the waiter may be too busy to take care of all guests in his assigned area.

“Delicious tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

The tacos (tacos de birria) are very good. Would recommend. They also have live music "rancheras" and "mariachis" to sooth the ears. I enjoyed my meal.

“Overpriced!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Plate of birria $103 pesos
Lemonade $40 pesos
Really???? I spent about $429 for 3 persons for a simple plate of birria!!! Which was not very good, I went there on november 11, 2012 in the morning, the place was full of drunks. You can find a better value and better tasting birria behind the Senate building with street vendors (about $45 pesos) per plate!
