Stopped here for some Mexican food and liked the small, nicely decorated and friendly restaurant. My wife ordered the nachos and got a plate full with beef and cheese. I got a combination plate with a soft taco and a burrito with rice and beans. To be honest, I could not tell the taco from the burrito. Both were good... More

The food was great. Loved the fish tacos and the fresh made chips... still warm when they were served. Pretty sure the owners are also the operators, so you get that real pride with the service.

Javier and his family bring authentic flavors of the Yucatan to this modest looking restaurant on A1A Beach. My favorite is Shrimp Fra Diavilo (sp) and Shrimp Chac-Mool. My husband loves the tacos, and usually gets three different ones. If you're good, Javier will serenade you and your party with song and guitar. Super soothing and really makes you feel... More

Why go to Cozumel/Cancun when you can eat authentic Mexican in our neighborhood? The answer is Playa Chac-Mool and owner Javier's strolling guitar serenades on A1A beach road D ST. Can't beat the Sangria at happy hour (3-6 some days) and all day mid week. (Quidado, closed Mondays:) Triple combo is the best deal for tasting the three burritos or... More

We tried to go to Salt Life on a Saturday night and found the wait to be too long. So, we slid down Beach Blvd to find this gem waiting for us. We were a party of 6 and were able to sit right away. It was good we were there early, though, because this little place fills up pretty... More
