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.

There may be a couple of these in town, but the one I visited was actually on Calle 8 between 10th and 15th. The restaurant is really a take out stand, though there is seating for a few people. The menu is limited to some standard Mexican fare, but it is inexpensive and very tasty. I have been back a... More

I decided to not be so typical during my visit and try the marlin burrito. I saw the open grill and fresh ingredients aside and even considered to ask which of the main meat ingredients was the freshest before opting for the marlin. The attendant assured me everything was fresh, great! My downfall in this culinary experience was creating expectations.... More

The food is good, the drinks are good, not expensive, rather cheap. They have a guy at the door that is always drunk or drugged out of his skull.. I was there with my lady friend and I almost punched the guy because he was so disrespectful towards her. THey need to get rid of the bloke! I think they... More

I'm always going to the Burro Playero located at Mamita's street, and so far so good. The food is not pretentious at all, but is good and definitely not expensive. The reason why I go there it's because of their super inexpensive beer, I mean, one litter on beer is $50 pesos (less than 5 bucks). The waiters and the... More
