Not just steak....

Even though Finca de Vaqueros makes the best arrachera and grilled meat platter in town, they do a really good job of grilled chicken breast and shrimp. Don't forget to try the charro beans. The shot of mezcal afterwards is a good way to complete the meal. The owners are warm and welcoming - a... read more

Went there for dinner and was not disappointed. Gave me a crab and some other appetizers while I was waiting for my food. Good portions, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices. Big big screen tv if you want to watch sports or other events. Full service bar. Specialty is oven cooked seafood

The service and theme is wonderful. The food was ok. We ordered the family plater to share so it included an assortment of meats. It was located across the ways from the navy station hospital which will be good to know because we had a difficult time locating it and many of the locals did not know where it was

What a fun place. Delicious BBQ served family style. Drop dead hot salsa and the best free mescal in town. If you are lucky, the owner will serenade your table with some quality singing. I love this place and go every year. The place near Pochutla is the most fun and the one that was at La Bocana was really... More

We had the mixed plate usually served for four people, but they did customize for two people. The beef and quail was good. Only one large pork rib given with the reduced order, but it was good. The rest of the meat was unmemorable. We had to order the bean soup that usually comes with the order for 4, but... More

We were looking for something with a local flair and this place was recommended by someone at the hotel. They didn't steer us wrong. It isn't ranked as high as it should be in my opinion and I suspect it's because it's a little out of the way. It's best to take a cab and walk back if you like.... More

Amazing carne asada, frankly better than what I've had in many restaurants in northern Mexico. We ordered a parrillada, and the meat, chicken and sausage were delicious. We also had queso fundido, which was quite good. Great atmosphere and service, to boot. A word of warning: the salsas of El Vaquero (Jaime, the owner) are delicious but insanely spicy, so... More
