Went on a tour, but loved the mocajetes. The steak is the best but the chicken is great, too. Amazing homemade tortillas! Loved it!

We went here at the recommendation of the Cabo Azul Resort staff. Food was excellent (we ate here twice in a week stay) and staff was fun, as the owner would come out and talk to you while he was having a fun time. Not seen that often but he was great. It was good authentic Mexican Food and we... More

If you have never have had one of these and you are not on a diet, I recommend you order this from their menu. You will not be disappointed. Make sure you get plenty of tortillas

We went there on a recomendation but it was really good. Good enough that we want back the next day. The molcajetes were all good but the Ranchera was amazing! The service was good. Polo and Juan both took very good care of us ans kept the tortillas coming

We went for lunch and initially it was dead but then 2 buses full of tourist got dropped off. I guess this place is popular with tours. But we still got good service. The molecajetes are the best I've ever had. However they don't have rice in them which I've had at other places none the less it was good.... More

I liked this place. All of our food was spot on. The molcajete with a mix of everything was great. I asked for extra habanero salsa. All very good. I especially enjoyed the AC in the dinning room. There was live music playing. This is a family spot.

We went back to El Herradero's a year plus after finding it a first time. We had a group of 10, so we made a reservation and did request inside with air conditioning. We were seated and asked for drinks very quickly. Ordered our meals and they were out quick, hot and delicious. We were taken care of by two... More
