This place is a must if you are in Cancun, it is open 24 hours and the food was amazing and very cheap. It doesn't look like much from the outside just a small counter with 3 benches and about 12 seats attached to a surfing shop but it is well worth finding. We had a bucket of ice cold... More

The guac was the best I had the entire time we were in Cancun. The burritos were very fresh, made to order, and were also... More

Holidaying in cancun for a few weeks, after plenty sun and cocktails found this place through trip advisor and headed there one afternoon. As per the other reviews, this shack is very understated but the food is so tasty, everything on the menu is big, delicious and cheap. Needless to say we visited more than once...recommend the steak and cheese... More

If you like to lay back and have the best burrito you'll ever have, listen to legendary rock tunes while throwing back ice cold Coronas, all served with warm and friendly hospitality, then don't miss the Surfin Burrito ! You will not be disappointed !

The smallest greatest burrito place I've been to. And an awesome bar. Don't get confused like I did and go to the restaurant next door thinking it's all one place. I had the Mahi tacos, freakin awesome. And the coco loco for a drink, the bartender hand chops a coconut for your cup with a machete. Fresh coconut water from... More

Loved this place! It is only 3 or 4 bar like tables on the sidewalk. Don't look for a big restaurant. But sitting on the stool and ordering tacos and burritos while people watching was fun. Great, cold beers and the most amazing mahi tacos ever. Highly recommend.

We went here today with our family for some authentic Mexican food. We wanted to get away from the "touristy" restaurants. We took the bus there, and found this little outdoor restaruant. The service was fantastic, friendly and helpful. The burritos were huge, flavorful, and made to everyone's individual preference. A chicken burrito is 69 pesos - about 6 USD.... More

It's like eating street food with tables and chairs laid on the pavement. Open 24 hours! You select your burrito fillings, salsa and type of wrap. You end up with a large burrito served in a red basket which takes some part of your stomach to heaven and back. Lazy chilled out ambiance with great drinks too. I had the... More
