This review is a long time coming as I have eaten here many times, for several years. The first time I ate here, I was so blown away by the food, that I camped out every day, getting there early waiting for the chef to arrive, and then watching, so I could learn. The food is simple, but as any... More

Every kind of taco you can imagine, all done excellently for a reasonable price. A very authentic street experience.

Everythings great about this Place! Its streettaco With a little extra. A must-try is the mahi-mahi quesedilla and the chorizzo quesedilla..Just writing about it is watering my mouth!! Normally this Place is kinda crowded during the season, so get there early or be prepared to wait for a table, as theres not many of them. But the Food is Worth... More

Delicious tacos here, no doubt about it. You pretty much get two tacos for the price of one because if the generous portion size. The guacamole is also very tasty. It's hard to decide which taco place to go to in Sayulita because they all look amazing. You MUST try this one!

I was very impressed with these tacos! I had the arrachera and the ribeye tacos, and they were both excellent. Both were very filling, and the condiments were VERY good. If you're in Sayulita, you should definitely stop by this place!

El Itacate is definitely one of our favorite places to eat in Sayulita, especially when in the mood for something vegetarian at an amazing value! Try the Jamaica Quesadillas, and their Chile Rellenos are really good too! And don't forget a delicious agua fresca... The limon con chia is delicious and refreshing:)

I was excited to try the tacos here. I asked the waiter to recommend his favourites and he hastily listed about ten different dishes, which didn't make it particularly easy. Nonetheless, I ordered one meat taco and one veggie quesadilla and I wasn't blown away. They were okay. The steak taco didn't have any seasoning. The Jamaica quesadilla was average.... More

so, just to be clear, you're sitting with your back on the street and it's hardly a restaurant. it's a taco stand. and it's fantastic! great service and super nice guys. loved all the food. but we came back 4x for the amazing hibiscus drink -- the most refreshing thing i've ever had.

We ate here one night after looking for another restaurant and were glad we did! The steak burritos were awesome, as were the fish tacos. The "flight" of salsas ranged from mild to super spicy. Not much for atmosphere since you are literally sitting at a table on the road but the food is worth it.
