Going out at night for some tacos or to dinner (cena
) at the “cenaduría” is basically a tradition in Guadalajara
, a part of the real life of the Tapatíos
. Everyone has their own favorite places, but there are a few that stand out – here are the best.
This place has a long tradition of cooking traditional Mexican
food with the special flavor of Guadalajara
. The flavor and quality are always guaranteed. And with lower prices than a formal restaurant, this place is your best bet if you want to taste pozole, enchiladas, tostadas, tacos, and sopes. And, of course, the traditional dessert: jericalla
. Bon appétit!
The name of this street stall is due to its owner, Gregorio (better known as Goyo), which combined with coyote makes Goyote. The “Santo” refers to a very fancy restaurant in the city, Santo Coyote
. The Santo Goyote taquería started serving tacos 30 years ago on a Christmas eve, according to its owner. Since then, they have been serving one of the best tacos in Guadalajara. Warning: it can get spicy.
Hot Dogs El Chino
If you haven’t already tasted Mexican hot dogs, this is your best chance. Atop a very soft bun coated in sour cream, the fried sausage with bacon is added along with chopped tomatoes and onions and a piece of fresh cheese. Of course, you can add mustard and ketchup, and chili, but that’s up to you.

Tacos are usually made with pork, chicken, fish, shrimp, or, of course, beef. But there are some parts of the cow, like the tongue, which are very well appreciated by foodies. This taquería makes the best tacos de lengua you will ever taste.

Tortas ahogadas Enrique el Viejo
The torta ahogada
is virtually a classical street food for Tapatíos
. You can find many street stalls all over the city, especially in the morning. But this small restaurant has all you can ask for in a good torta ahogada
: good bread and pork and an excellent sauce. Warning: be extra careful with the hot sauce.
Super Takko Tors
Very well known to the locals, this kind of taco is also usually found earlier in the day. They are made with chopped beef that is cooked with tomato sauce. Normally there is a choice between dorados (crispy tacos) and blanditos (soft tacos). It is probably not the fanciest place to eat, but the flavor is really worth it. Enjoy.
