“Classic Taco Joint!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Cheap and good. Not my Favorite al Pastor tacos in San Cristobal but still pretty good! A great mix of locals and the occasional traveller since El Meson is mentioned in some guidebooks. Great Salsas, and love the Horchata served in a clay mug, it's a nice touch and tastes great! It's few blocks from the Zocalo but it is nice to travel outside the center to visit some authentic local hot spots and really everything is close enough in San Cristobal, a city meant to be walked in. I definately would recommend this as one of the Top Taco Joints in San Cristobal Make sure to do some Taco-Hopping and check them all out!

“Delicious tacos al pastor”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

wonderful tacos al pastor- the best tacos I had while I was in Mexico! I got them with and without cheese and preferred the addition of cheese, which cost about 20 cents to add. Great value!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

This is the place for tacos in San Cristobal.

Recommended to us by a local, we were thrilled to find the real thing. Home made tortillas, freshly sliced al pastor meat, mmmmmm. Tacos al pastor, only 7 pesos each.

Not a single tourist, other than us, in the place. A bit out of the way, on a quiet street, and it was busy, busy. That says a lot.

“Wonderful Tacos.”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

This is a place that is popular with the locals, as they have wonderful tacos. The tortillas are made fresh onsight, so no re-heated tortillas like most places. It is a simple restaurant with very good tacos, so they don't have to be open a lot. They advertise that they open at 6PM, but don't get there till after 7PM when things are going. They are closed Tuesdays.
