Best taco's in town

I love going to El Viejo's, they have a great breakfast, but what I love are their tacos. The condiment bar is unbelievable and their prices are so reasonable. I go there at least once a week.

Got taken here by a relative who thought their fish tacos were something worth experiencing. Totally correct. Great food, easy going feel, ice cold beers! Great place for a relaxed lunch or early dinner.

On our recent trip to Los Barriles, we had a friend who recommended we have lunch here. This is our third trip to LB, and I don't know how we missed it in the past. They serve breakfast and lunch only. The waitress was great, our friend ordered a fish platter for us served with rice and a salad. I... More

I never knew that this place existed but I'm glad that I found out about it. I had lunch there with my wife and the friend who told us about it. We got service with a smile. The fish was outstanding and the prices are good along with the portions.

The waitress was sweet, the service was swift, but the food was so so. My husband and his sister both had garlic fish. She liked it he did not. I had pescado verdado. I enjoyed the fish although the presentation left quite a bit to be desired. Just a bunch of green glop all over. But it was tasty and... More

Amazing fresh Mexican food for very reasonable prices. My husband loved the fish and chips. Fish tacos are also delish. The condiment bar alone is worth stopping. Don't get left out of best lunch in Los Barilles. Spanish speaking staff used to dealing with gringos.

This place is a favorite of gringo expats and locals alike ..Super fresh fish or shrimp fried in batter or grilled and a beautiful salsa bar makes this a great spot for lunch... The beer is as cold as it can get and the service friendly....Highly recommended

We had lunch at El Viejo and found it very pleasant. We ordered fish prepared in a light garlic sauce....tender and plentiful. No bones and very flavorful. The salad was fresh and crispy served with lovely rings (how did they do that?!) of avocado. We were told it was washed in purified water. Beer was cold and delicious. The man... More
