Very good tacos

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... read 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.

Local establishment serving mostly locals. Caleta fajitas with 3 beers for under $10. Place is known for their tacos, which are less than a dollar each. Off the beaten track. You have to know the address to find it.

Great food, good service! My only mistake was to take our son there on our first night and then he never wanted to try another restaurant! The back patio is very basic, but the big screen tv plays soccer. Big family tables there.

It's rare to find a taco location that serves so many styles (meats) as El Pique. They do them all very well. From El Pastor, to asada or even suadero, El Pique really does a great job. I have eaten tacos all over Mexico for 20 years and I would put this down as the top option in Cozumel. Cozumel... More

This has always been one of our favorite places. maybe we hit the wrong night but the service was slow this time and orders not correct. They were busy but not any more than usual except a lot of takeout orders. Saw a lot more North Americans here this time also. Food is still good and the pastor has got... More

I have been visiting this very fine establishment for the last few decades. It has never disappointed my taste buds for affordable and delicious tacos and fajitas at a very affordable price. Cold beer is also served to complement the gre A t food that us served. A favorite of mine and hope yours as well.
