Off the beaten path taqueria

This is the place to go for tacos pastor and frijoles especial! The waiters dont speak much English so it is good to take someone who can habla a little espanol. But if you want some great tacos and beans, and dont wanna break the bank, this little taqueria is the place to go. :)

Excellent food at very reasonable prices. The tacos pastor were amazingly delicious. The bistec tacos yummy. Others in the group had the fajitas and said they were excellent. The queso was perfect. Very good place for a casual meal.

Simple local, plasic tables and chairs. Food is basic, tasty, inexpensive. If you want to eat local, eat fresh, eat cheap, eat here! Outdoor courtyard is fun. 10 minute walk from the ferry.

About 10 of us went last night and had some of the best street tacos I've ever had. The Chorizo tacos were so tasty and the Frijoles Especial were outstanding. Not fancy, come as you are. Can't beat the prices.

It's nice that the wonderful friendly folks of Cozumel have an affordable and incredibly good taco bar in their neighborhood. There are two economies here in Cozumel depending on your stay, and the best part about El Pique is that they open at 5pm so its off limits to the cruisers...mooo. You can feed 5 people, all big eaters...for 500... More

This place is steamy and hot, but worth the visit for their awesome tacos. They are known for their pork chops. Try some in tacos or order platos style. Delicious!

A local friend told me this was the "only place to go" for tacos. The pastor was excellent, as were the frijoles. 4 tacos, beans, and 2 beers for less than $10! Can't beat that. I was disappointed that they no longer have "weird" meats on the menu. I was looking forward to trying ojo and I always have lengua... More

We absolutely loved this place; we had 2 takeout dinners! Excellent tacos and very reasonably priced. We had chicken, el pasteur (pork), and chorizo. All were excellent. Make sure to get them with cheese.
