Incredible flavors

I love this place. I always start with a Cadillac Martini and Queso Cilantro--bubbling cheese in hot volcanic pot. This is unusual, creative Mexican food at its most flavorful.

If you want fresh, delicious Mexican food at a great price in town try out this place! There is no sense of time here so this is not the place to go if you are in a hurry. We had 5 adults and the bill equaled $50. We did not have alcoholic drinks but they are available. This location is... More

This is a very popular restarurant east of Insurgentes about 5 blocks. Broad Mexican menu with some delicious appetizers as well. There are beef, chicken, or shrimp fajitas or a combination of any of these. All taxis know El Brujo which means male witch. Nothing scary about this place tho. Try it.

At the recommendation of friends at our hotel, we found this lovely "off the beaten path" restaurant. Four of us went for lunch and had a remarkable time. We had several drinks, including my out of this world Margarita and with a very ample and delicious lunch, cost total was under $40.00! Less than $10.00 per person for great tasting... More

5 if us went late (9 pm) on a Thursday to eat in July. We went with a local and enjoyed all of our food. We loved the salsa, and queso fundido (or something like it). we all ordered the arrachera (flank steak) which came in with some mild sauce and onions. A strolling guitarist came in, sang a few...

We decided to try El Brujo because a friend of ours had her wedding party here and said they did a great job. While it is not on the main drag it is definitely worth finding. This is a casual place with a nice mix of locals and tourists. The real hit was the food which was outstanding. We had... More

A first visit was a good experience so we tried it again and were very disappointed. Service was adequate, but not terribly attentive even though there were only 7 customers for an early dinner. My husband's beef fajitas were overcooked and leathery dry...not edible. My ribs had good flavor, but they were so heavily coated in sauce I could not... More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor we decided to take our family for what we thought a very expensive dinner. Well I was quite impressed with not only the food but the price, there were 6 of us and the total came in at under $100. I would recommend anyone travelling to PV to go and have some amazing...
