This place outwardly looked like a good place to eat. I am a pescetarian and ordered the veggie tacos with poblano peppers. They brought me the wrong meal and gave it to the wrong person, so I ended up receiving a slightly eaten burrito full of mushrooms. They were not happy to replace the meal despite my complaining. I was... More

Taqueria Medina for tacos is the place to be. They open later in the evening - usually between 7 and 7:30 PM. The tacos al pastor are some of the best we have ever had.

You will have some of the best tacos on the island here. Yes it's in the very touristy area but it is authentically, simple, good Mexican food. Do it!!!

Great tacos served with fixings. Rustic family owned place. We liked our tacos- we tried most of them and they were all good. Came with sauces, veggies. Nice location on Hidalgo.

Mae have eaten tacos here a few times on a couple different trips and the tacos are so good! We have determined later evening tacos are better than early dinner. May be who's doing the cooking at the time, but they are delicious.

This is a great spot for inexpensive Mexican cuisine with a Middle East flavor. Yucatán has many Lebanese immigrants who have added their distinctive food to the area. We really enjoyed our meal here.
