Torteria Insurgentes Top 100

This mini-chain serves up killer alambres — a whole skillet of meat, peppers, onions and cheese with folded tortillas alongside — and excellent, filling Mexican breakfasts at rock-bottom prices. The chilaquiles are outstanding, and so are the long, oval-shaped quesadillas, prepared as they are in Mexico City. That doesn’t even mention the restaurant’s namesake tortas, enormous sandwiches stacked with so much filling, the bread sometimes falls apart. The notorious torta cubana, which comes with something like a half-dozen meats, is a true hunger buster.
