This is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in my life. Their food is pure deliciousness. It can get very busy here sometimes though, and it's common to have a wait time of an hour or even more during the busier parts...More

Restaurant to eat Mexican tacos in a hip and different way. Very popular for locals and tourists. I went for lunch and it was very crowded. We ordered several dishes like taco “jaibon” with crab, very good. Also the "huerfanos" tacos with shrimp, guacamole, cheese...More

We arrived shortly after they opened as we had read that they get busy... and sure enough, by the time we finished our lunch and left, the place was full. There was so much good food on the menu, and there were so many salsas...More

Everything we had was great. The tacos, drinks, and all for a great place. It's not touristy at all but it's not a hole in the wall either. Just go!

Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch
