The Best Tacos on the Island

This is an open air restaurant located in the middle of the block. Most would not give it a second look and what a loss for them! This place has the best tacos, freshest and tastiest salsa, and excellent cold beer. The summer months may be a bit warm but it is worth the sweat.

Outstanding street-style tacos! But the most outstanding thing I found was the vegetarian burrito with salty beef, I know, doesn't make sense but just try it! Service is prompt and attentive. Really try your "spanglish", it's fun to try to speak Spanish and they are fun as they help to correct you! Bar is across the alley and has great... More

It is a bit of a walk from the main area but a must visit. A good selection of tacos and other foods. The food was simple, delicious and the best value in Cozumel. You have to try it!

This place is amazing. I cannot recommend it enough. It is as others have said where locals go. A waiter at wet Wendy's recommend it to us. A huge bonus is they are open late.

What we really love about this place is the ability to order everything by the piece. Want to try all kinds of tacos and quesadillas without having to commit to one big order/meal? This is your place. It's a locals place and because it is cheap, don't expect free chips and salsa, don't expect lettuce and tomato, and don't expect... More

We went to eat at our resort and all the food was high end and all me and my wife wanted was some real Mexican food! One of the waiters told us about this place and it was amazing! We got the street tacos and they were great. If you like hot stuff ask for the habanero sauce! It was... More
