For good authentic Mexican food this is the place to go. It has a very tasty mocajetes with a varieties of of meats and veggies? Wonderful chili rejenos and enchiladas. Best Mexican food in town.

I am writing to recommend El Herradero Mexican Grill and Bar in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. I felt completely comfortable dining there alone the night before joining a group of friends on a writing retreat/workshop. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. I ordered a mocajete with chicken for dinner and finished off my dining with flan with a... More

We tried this restaurant last year when we were here and thought it was the best in town for Mexican food. We have returned this year to find that it is still great. Their specialty is the mocajete which is a meal cooked and served in a stone lava bowl. I had the shrimp and beef bowl and it was... More

If you like the constant smell of exhaust combined with mediocre food this is the place to go. This menu caters to American tourists. For me going, the fun of travel, is experiencing the local flavor. They have seafood dishes but I found the food just okay and over priced.

On our last trip to San Jose de Cabo, we dined at El Herrader Mexican Grill and Bar. It was very good and in keeping with a great Mexican tradition. The food was great and I would recommend it to anyone. .

Very reasonably priced with awesome food and service. Never heard of a mocajetes before (cooking in an extremely hot stone bowl) but what earthy, rustic flavors! This restaurant is a large palapa, so almost like eating outdoors. Best food, so far, in Cabo

We have eaten here about 7 times over the course of our last two visits to Los Cabos. Love the open atmosphere, great service, generous portion and easy to find parking. Prices are very reasonable. We will be back soon.

Had a nice dinner but enjoyed other options such los claros and guacamaya's better. Thought that el herradero caters to the tourist and prepares a type of food that is common in the us. Flavors at guacamya's or los claros are truly local in comparison. Food at el herradero was good but not memorable. We enjoyed the bowl option (shrimp... More
