Tasty mexican food!

Ate some burritos and tacos with rice and beans. Food tastes like proper mexican and service was fast. Little bit more expensive though than in other restaurant's in that area.

We came here twice it was that good. Service is fast (was very quiet when we came) food was amazing. I had a combo meal and the food was so tasty and very good value for money. Would reccomend any one in koh phangan to come here. If I'm ever back I will be back here.

I've traveled to Koh Phangan for multiple extended visits and the Loco has become a staple. I'm not aware of any alternative Mexican food on the island (perhaps in Haad Rin), but that's okay because you really don't need another option.
