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!

This is a little hole in the wall with some really extraordinary tacos. They are typical street food tacos but made with artisan attention to detail by hipster types. We went there twice and just loved it -- especially the interesting range of condiments served with the tacos.

Just like everyone else has said, great tacos and great prices. Try the guacamole, it is awesome. They also have great flavored waters you have to request.

We stumbled upon Ed Itacate one night in Sayulita. Their tacos are slightly larger than some of the street tacos and they offer you up a smorgasbord of accoutrements for your food. Their guac was a hearty helping and is very much recommended as well. I'm guessing this place is much more of a tourist location than a local joint,... More

This is always a favorite! We particularly love the jamaica quesadilla, the little grilled onions they wrap in foil, and the many different varieties of tacos. Always hot, fresh and delicious! Good value as well.

We took a day trip to Sayulita and for lunch had the dilemma of which wonderful smell should we head to and eat?! We wandered into a bar down there recently bought by a fellow American who recommended this place to us. Lots of taco choices to choose from but the arrachera and the rib eye tacos are delicious!!!!!! We... More
