Where's the Beef?

Had lunch here today (28th& ave1). The burritos were big, so price of 89 pesos wasn't out of line, but it seemed that all you could taste was the fillings and not much meat. The beers were nice and cold and service was okay. Wouldn't go out of my way to return.

The nachos are tasty and the beer is cold. Very close to the beach, it is a good place for lunch. It's not the cheapest place in town.

Nice little spot off la 5t ave. crowd. Very Good service, good food, nice atmosphere, and like very few places in playa del Carmen reasonable price. Not the best food in town, but it's ok if you're trying to have a decent meal without paying a fortune.

yummy little restaurant close to the Aldea Thai where I stayed while in Playa del Carmen. I ate there a few times for lunch it was great healthy Mexican food. The burrito bowl was on of my favorites.

Their vegetarian burrito is a stand-alone success. VERY memorable sauces come with it, including a brilliant horseradish concoction. To die for, and like 4 bucks.

Even though the location us not great, if you want a good burrito this is the place! I personally liked the burrito al pastor.

Awesome burritos! The place is pretty small and there is only outdoor seating. That being said, you don't really feel that hot as there is shading. In fact when we went we thought about getting the food and going inside somewhere but after sitting down we hardly noticed the heat and in fact had a nice breeze helping us. Back... More

Perfect place for a snack or a quick bite. Good location and prices. The "burro de pastor" tasted really good and it was pretty decent size.
