Tacos al pastor. Go. Now. Tiny stand but great flavor. You won't find this at home. The lady with the rooster is still across the street.

We heard about this little place from our hotel as a local place. Loved it and ate several times during our week in Cozumel. Prices couldn't be believed.

Al pastor tacos here are the best we've found on the island so far. Prices are very reasonable and the beef tortas are a great and cheap lunch option- made with good bread. Service here is also generally very good and friendly.

The menu was clear and concise and even stated, "Our waiter does not speak very good English" which we thought was funny and very helpful to us... More

I have eaten pazole at many restaurants in the U.S. and Mexico and Los Otates is the best. For the uninitiated, pazole is a... More

This was very close to where we were staying and we ate here after diving. It was so good we couldn't wait to go back. I really wish I could get the burritos here! Between our visits, we had the queso fundido with chorizo, the chicken burrito, the chorizo burrito, the hamburger tacos, steak burrito, and the guacamole. Easily the... More
