If you are hanging around La Condesa in Mexico City you can´t leave without stopping by El Tizoncito and trying the best tacos al pastor in the world made by the great Pedro. It´s in Tamaulipas street in the corner with Campeche, la Condesa, Mexico DF. My personal menu: 5 Tacos al pastor completos! On top of the tacos ask for "una orden de gringas" and "una sherezada" a mild spicy taco in arab braed with cheese and chile poblano. Drink: una michelada with Modelo Especial.

Works like a brat son, you may love tacos but the behavior is terrible. This is not Mexican food but if you feel like sharing with a crowd of noisy, trendy middle-class youngsters (or young-feeling oldies) go ahead. The taste and the price are ridiculous but you could feel comfortable.

I love this tacos. They are delicious and you know you will not spend too much money. It is very clean in all of their restaurants and people are usually very attentive. They claim to be the original inventors of "tacos al pastor" and I can not guarantee that is true, but they are the closest to the best ones I have ever tried (I was born and raised in Mexico City and a regular foodie) Great place to take Americans or tourists.

It's hard to get better than this in the genre of simple, street-like food (even though this is a chain and therefore in a sense upmarket compared to real street food). Their speciality, the tacos al pastor, are unforgettable, but everything here, really, is just simple and simply good, their onions, their guacamole, their michelada.

Prices are a steal, service is kind and efficient.

Outstanding time. Our group ate about 10 tacos each. Just stuffed ourselves. Outdoor corner sidewalk experience. Neighborhood street musicians. Not five-star dining but imo a must do for authentic Mexico City. First time for me doing tacos al pastor but I'm hooked. Best tacos in the world!
