I've been going here for years. It is one of the few local loncherias left down town. They've raised there prices over the years, but it's still a great deal. It is authentic Mexican food that never fails to satisfy. We always start with the fresh guacamole and usually have the tacos. The fish tacos are excellent, made with fish... More

We have eaten at different places in Playa, Cancun and Isla, at different price ranges. This one tops it all. Fresh homemade real food. Nice portions. Tiny place, outrageously great food. Loved the empanadas! Loved the avocados stuffed with tuna salad! Loved the fried bananas! Loved all the fish! Will come back

Loved the variety and quality! Great prices, fast service, and friendly staff. Be sure to try their Chaya natural drink made of native leaves and lime.

Picked up a fresh bottle of mandarina juice at the mercado and then stopped for breakfast at Poc Chuc. Huevos rancheros was standard fare but the huevos moutelenos was outstanding. Both were an excellent value and the service in this "comida econimica" was terrific.

For an alternative away from the tourist fare around the centro, and a break for real Yucatan food, this is perfect. Frequented by locals, the service is not only excellent; genuinely friendly and welcoming. Great panuchos, superb sopa de lima. Make sure you visit on a sunday morning or lunch at most: they cook cochinita pibil sundays and all locals... More

We had a wonderful dinner with our server Salavdore! He made great margaritas as strong as you'd want! Dinner of tacos was amazing and we ordered the garlic fish as well. Very delicious!
