Great food, great price

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.

This is one of those places that when you finally get seated and learn the lay of the land you are glad you came. I am not sure in August if heat exhaustion would be out of the question but in March it was tolerable. The tacos are excellent. The beer is cold. The waiters who are working like wild... More
