Don't miss!

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

Best tacos in Baja with all the fixin's. Almost always busy, for good reason and sometimes slow as there are a few employees, but worth the wait! A must stop every time we're in town.

When not in Los Barriles I really miss having breakfast or lunch at El Viejo. The price is right and the food is simple and good. What you would expect in Mexico.

This is the place we like to go for tacos. This last time they were a little overwhelmed by the customers (it was packed) but generally they handle it well. But, as anywhere in Mexico, you must be patient. After all, you're on vacation. What's your hurry? Ease up Gringo. If you can get in that mode, then you'll be... More

we had scallop, shrimp, fish and beef tacos - $2.00 each - add a couple ice cold beers and lunch for 2 for $12 - their taco bar lets you put whatever you want on the tacos. Someone at a neighboring table had fish and chips that looked yummy - they close at like 3 so don't plan dinner there

Good food and good service. Tacos a specialty withe lots of condiments. Lunch and breakfast. Flies in the far back a bit annoying but its Mexico.

If you're looking for a lunch spot and enjoy tacos this is the place, it gets busy over lunch but it worth it.
