Visited Palenque travel from Tikal to Merida. Was looking for something to eat near the bus station ADO. Mr. Taco - Mexican fast food network. Since we were in Mexico the first day, we liked. Inexpensive. Only located next to the Chinese place cheaper. But it's so all over the world.

I'm pretty much addicted to Tacos Pastor and this place dishes up a quality version. Also dug into some sirloin tacos which were very good as well. Popular with locals as well which is always a good sign.

The Best El Pastor tacos I've had in my life. The Gringas at so delicious . We came here everyday while we were in Palenque. The food was amazing and service was too.

I have visited many times and the latests visit was good, as always. A wide variety of local basic tacos at a very low price. Also excellent freshly made aquas. The best freshly prepared guanábana I have ever tasted. Service is prompt, friendly and attentive. Despite the common name, a locally owned establishment and not part of a chain.

Staff were friendly and patient with our limited Spanish, they even brought us a sample of the meat to try so we knew what we were ordering. Definitely recommend this for a great cheap eat

Mr Taco is a fast food chain, so there isn't much to say about it. If you want a stable "antojito" (mexican snacks) quality and if you're willing to pay a comparable high price, go for it. For everybody seeking a more mexican experience, I would suggest eating in the street. It's cheaper and far original than anything you could... More
