We went to this restaurant the first night we were in Mexico City, because I didn't think it advisable to eat a lot. However, we did crunch down on the tacos and my wife enjoyed delicious flan. Good fast food place.

I had read such great reviews for this restaurant so was expecting big things. Whilst the service was super quick and good was good, I think the reviews are definitely way over the top! It's a tourist haven and has a real fast food chain...More

I love when I can sample a number of items/flavors/sauces in one sitting. Variety is the spice of life, so they say. And getting that at a very reasonable price is even better. I know a multitude of these restaurants here offer similar fare, but...More

They take the expiration date tags from the juices they sell when the expiration date is close or already past. I like this place but this is a common practice and it is dead wrong.

Good place for tacos in general, efficient service and good offer. Try the guacamole as entry, with super crispy tortillas. Many options for beer. Good alternative in the area for a quick traditional Mexican tacos.

Clean, well located and amazing food. The tacos al pastor I think are the best one I've ever tried. Go!

Easy to explore either on bike or foot, Condesa offers
a great variety of activities and places to visit
while admiring its neo-colonial architecture. Diverse
restaurants vary from regional to global along its
streets, while local bars even let you craft your own
beer. The urban yet relaxing vibe let visitors cycle
or stroll on the Amsterdam Circuit.

Hi, my answer is a bit late! Sorry! Califa has "nopales asados" (grilles cactus) and hand made tortillas and grilled cheese. But... please note they cook it on the same grill as the meet Tacos, so, if you are an orthodox... More
