This was one of the last places we had Dinner at and it was very good. The food is not made until you order it! It was great food and the salsas are hands down great. Good little local Diner with great atmosphere...

Their Mexican sausage tostada was very good, as well as their antojito with no meat. They had good service and a pretty well kept restaurant. Although I do not approve of their approval of smoking there. But some of the best food I've had on my vacation though.

As others have stated, the food, service, atmosphere (although no AC) are fantastic. Nothing really too add that has not been said...if in SJdelCabo and going out to eat, you can't go wrong here.

A late night snack turned into one of our favorite evenings with Tacos, margaritas, hot pot, all with live accompaniment from a strumming minstrel. The restaurant was a continuous bustle of people coming and going all having fun. If you miss coming here you will miss one of the truly perfect things of San Jose del Cabo!

I would have made the title of this review Good and Cheap...but didn't want to understate how GOOD the food was although it was equally cheap (which is good for family on budget). It is more authentic than hotel food and someone of the other places you will likely eat but yet, you do want authentic food right? I had... More

Great beef, chicken, seafood tacos and other local dishes. They mix a good strong drink and the service is friendly. Good mix of locals and tourists in the know. It,s on a side street and parking can sometimes take a couple minutes to find. Love the Al Pastor.

Quick, prompt service was a nice change from other "slower" restaurants. My wife and 21 year old daughter were able to make 3 meals from their Stone Bowls! The Fried Cheese Roll was a great appetizer, as well as the complimentary Mexican relish plate. Colorful decor and ambience helped to make this visit authentic. Appeared to be a favorite place...

Have the stone bowl!! Somehow photos don't do it justice but, trust me, when that sizzling heap of cheese and cactus and pork and flank steak arrives, you'll grin like an idiot and tuck in like a king! Margaritas are giant and simple and strong, and the pig skin quesadilla is delicious! Check out the fried cheese as a shared... More

Each time we go to Cabo this is on our must visit list. We love their tacos; pastor, carne asada and arachera on fresh corn tortillas.
