Great inexpensive tacos!

We've been to Cozumel a lot, but never ate here until last week. Met up w/a local friend and we had some great tacos! The beef was marinated and very tender. We'll definitely be going there every year in the future.

A local recommend this place for good Mexican food. We ordered the vegetarian burrito, queso with peppers, and guacamole. The salsas are brought to the table in bottles, green is mild and red was spicy. The food was delicious. If you like trying local foods, this place is a must. FYI, the beans are not vegetarian, wish they would have... More

Food is cheap but amazing!! After a good dive its great to fill up the stomach with some yummy tacos pastor or arrachera. After drinking lots of beer a great pozole falls down right. ( Pozole is chicken broth soup with some spices and vegetables..not spicy just warm and comforting)

I recommend this place specially for late night dinners. They have a menu with vegeterian options, the food in general is quite good and you can have beer. Is not very common to find good tacos, Pozole and vegetarian options, but they coexist here. The food has a very good taste in general, things that I tried they were good.... More

We had lunch here after it was recommended by our dive shop and consulting trip advisor. A couple of reviewers had ridiculous complaints like my tacos had cheeks and tongue or the condiments were reused. When you order tacos de cabesa on the menu it tells you you get "head" meat and you are buying tacos in Mexico for a... More

My husband and I were driving by and smelled the food coming from this restaurant, saw locals inside, and decided to stop. The meal was fantastic! I had the pork tacos with pineapple while my husband had marinated pork tacos with onions, peppers, and pineapple. We were both thoroughly satisfied with our orders! The waiter was very nice and the... More

This restaurant gives you the Mexican feeling and the staff is great! Prices are even more great and we tried a lot of the menu because of that. We had 5 days in Cozumel, and went here for lunch or dinner 4 times(!!)

Outside seating so bring bug spray as we ate at sunset and mosquitos were out. Service was awesome and food was big portions. Full bar. Off beaten path but safe and friendly! Worth a stop

Just as good as remembered. Authentic Mexican food at great prices. One of the things we like about Cozumel is that if you venture just a few streets back from the main drag, you can get great Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Eat like the locals and enjoy every bite.
