Came here to try some authentic pozole and it was incredible! I asked the waiter for his favorite and he recommended the head and leg pozole. It was so freaking good!! I've had other pozoles before and after and they don't compare at all. My...More

This place is awesome. We went here twice during a 4 night stay in Oaxaca. First time round we had veggie pozole, and avocado and bean tostadas with a couple of beers. The service was quick and the price ridiculously low. The second time we...More

So, I've never actually eaten a torta here because their pozole is off the wall. You can get a vegetarian pozole, too! The portions are huge, so you should show up hungry.

This is a simple but clean establishment that's very popular with the locals. We had tortas (sandwiches) and salad as takeout, both delicious and filling. Never made it back for the pozole -- we'll save that for the next time.

Great prices for delicious food. Obviously go for the tortas - my favorite is the chicken and egg torta for only 50-55 pesos!

We heard about this place from a local guide and had a group of six. Each ordered a different pozole and no one was disappointed. This is not a high end place. It specializes in local Oaxacan foods and we found the service was good,...More

We ate pozole here a few times trying both the red and green pozoles. I recommend them both. Service was fast and attentive, and prices are very reasonable. Open pretty late most days, too it seems.
