We’ve mentioned a lot of al pastor tacos in this guide, but they are the most emblematic taco in Mexico City—plus, we’ll never stop talking about al pastor no matter what. El Huequito was founded in 1959, and they’re the self-proclaimed first place to serve tacos al pastor in CDMX. They’re so proud of their tacos al pastor that each one of them comes with a mountain of pastor meat that you can split into the accompanying 7 or 8 tortillas.
With 10 locations, El Huequito has become a legit franchise, but the homemade quality is still very much there. The best location is the one in Napoles. The decor feels more like an airport lounge than a taco place, but it still has a buzzy atmosphere.
