It runs deep under Avenida Revolución, a main thoroughfare in Mexico City. It serves the Mixcoac area of the city. There are two main entrances to the station: one in the west sidewalk of the aforementioned avenue and the other in a small plaza between Avenida Revolución, Avenida Patriotismo, Eje 7 Sur Extremadura and Calle Empresa. The station logo depicts a snake because the Nahuatl name Mixcoac means "Nest of Cloud Serpents". The station opened on 19 December 1985.
