El Vilsito

If you come to El Vilsito for lunch, it’s going to be busy. But stop by for a midnight snack, and it’ll be like an outdoor nightclub with a taco shack. Originally—and still to this day—a car repair shop, they eventually added a taqueria to the storefront and stay open until 3am on weekdays and 5am on Saturdays and Sundays. 

All the tacos are great, but their specialty is the gringa de pastor, which tastes great with their homemade avocado salsa. And the people-watching is fun: you’ll see locals drive up and park right in front and have a waiter take their order and deliver it right to their car.

Los Achiotes in Naucalpan is a bit far from Central CDMX, but the tacos de cochinita pibil are worth it.
