  • Tacos Astecas are amazing!
  • Cash only, closest ATM is on Girard. Get the elote (grilled corn), and basically everything else on their menu can't be beat.
  • Get the Mexican corn it's not on the menu just order it!!!! It's like crack!
  • Free Coronas!
  • The sopes are amazing w/ carne asada, shrimp or chicken!! Sooo fresh! And the pozole (spicy chicken soup) is freaking awesome!!
  • Best taco place in the city.
  • The tostadas were ok but had way too much lettuce on them and not enough substance (meat and beans).
  • These tacos are A2 (not A1).
  • Bland tastes, tacos seem incomplete without all the fixings, tortilla over-processed. Price was good. Then you bus your own table. Goodbye.
  • classic and authentic Real Mexican
  • Try the fish taco's. Amazing!!!
  • They are very affordable with some vegan options. The horchata was great.
  • Chef David Gilberg eats here on his nights off. He loves the Taco de choriqueso con queso de Oaxaca.
  • Authentic tacos! Small, double corn tortillas, and packed full of meat. Al pastor are the best!
  • This colorful little taqueria brings authentic and affordable Pueblan street food - tamales; tacos dorados; stuffed poblanos; posole stew - to a casual but cheery corner room. Can be very slow.
  • Get the corn on the cob it is delicious! I also love the shrimp tacos!
  • My favorite burritos in the city! Vegans, seriously get the veggie burrito without cheese and cream.
  • Awesome food! You should try the Burrito de Tinga!
  • This place is fabulous. Everything is so fresh. The pozole is excellent.
  • Tacos Al Pastor are awesome, tongue tacos too. Duhlicious.
