Highly recommended for those looking for a traditional and authentic Mexican restaurant. Try the specialty barbacoa that is slow cooked in a traditional pre hispanic way! Also try the carnitas that are superbly cooked! Our server Miguel Marin did a great job. The live traditional...More

Kind of a local tourist trap. The atmosphere is festive and the place is very big, so locals and tourists alike pack the place on weekends. Children will love it too -- even the pork rinds , which are made and fried right there in...More

The mariachis and all the music shows are great! Although having two mariachis battling it out in the same room gets old after a few minutes. The food was okay but it could be better, carne asada was raw. The service was bad, we had...More

this place is huge. The food is good and plentiful. Mariachis abound and it feels very traditional. The Mole Poblano was the best dish that we tried -party of 50-.

Time seems to have frozen in several areas that still
remain true to what Tlalpan once was, but the clock is
still ticking in the relaxed environment that makes it
the perfect neighborhood for friends, couples and
families who love to explore at their own pace. Plaza
de la Constitución is where everyone gathers on
weekends to listen to live music and where some of the
best coffee shops, restaurants and bookstores satisfy
