Arrachera is delicious, make sure you have pesos!

My husband loved the arrachera taco, but I was unimpressed with my asada and fish tacos. Fish taco came painted in some red sauce, it wasn't ideal. Also, make sure you have pesos with you!! They bent us over on the exchange rate when we ran out of pesos. 10 pesos per $1!! When most would do at... read more

I eyed this restaurant one day coming home from the beach so we headed back around dinner time when it was open. I ordered 2 arrachera con queso and my partner had the New York tacos. The amount of food that came to the table! These tacos are huge! And I loved how they put the cheese between two tortillas.... More

Shrimp, steak, arrachera, pulled pork - sit street side and order them 2 by 2 with some cold beer and watch the world go by. Not quiet & romantic, but fabulous food

Really good tacos and guacamole, and a nice change of pace with the vegetarian options. Definitely plan on paying with pesos

We picked up tacos at this place after being out at the Mercado in La Cruz and they were the best!! Our husbands had the steak ones and loved them. I had the chicken and it was really yummy.

On a quest to find our favourite tacos in Sayulita, we hit this place up. Largest amount of vegetarian taco options (five solid contenders) we were able to find in one place - our favourite was the chile rellenos with queso. Definitely order a pineapple basil agua fresca; this ended up being the highlight of my meal. Well worth checking... More

Large portion, tasty, and inexpensive. Brought toppings on the side. Various options. I had Strip steak tacos. Very good. Perfect "taco crawl" spot. All other taco places secondary.

This is the surfer boy/girl's taco street side restaurant. It is very simple. The menue is on a board and you order tacos by eaches. They put a salsa condement tray on your table several different salsas from medium to very hot. No beer, so we ordered bottle water. We had an enjoyable Queso Flamiado. It filled us up before...

If my husband had his way, we would have eaten here for every meal! He was smitten with the sirloin tacos!
