Well prepared and tasty taco's served on the street (literally). This little place turns out good food but is the victim of it's own trip advisor success... Prices have gone up substantially since last year.I'm not saying it's expensive but... There are plenty of good restaurants in Sayulita that cost a lot less and are vehicle exhaust and noise free.Just... More

Don't let the street locale fool you. Along with Tacos On The Street, another place in town this is tops for tacos. Wonderfully fresh and flavorful ingredients separate this place from the rest. At $2-3 per taco you can't go wrong. I recommend this place to all visitors

I had mahi-mahi tacos, the rest of my gang had an assortment. My mahi-mahi tacos were outstanding. The verdict from the posse was that they had had better elsewhere. Service was excellent. The street-side tables meant that an amount of exhaust fumes were ingested with the meal. Despite the cars, I would definitely eat there again.

Delicious tacos! I found their juices to be a little sweet but they gladly watered them down on request.

I did a fish and shrimp taco tour in Sayulita. Gotta try this place.. Biggest piece of fish and 5 shrimps. Tacos are served naked with some sorta salsa-gravy (just the fish and tortilla). You add your own toppings, salsas. Loved the jalepeno onions. I sat down for my standard fish and shrimp taco-- liked it so much added a... More

There are many places to eat tacos in Sayulita, I think Itacate is the best. You better get here early or you will be waiting. The locals and the tourist are eating side by side here. I really enjoy the carne asada but the breaded chicken breast is a close second.

Walked by this place every night for a week. Was unable to get a table night after night - always full (all 3 tables). Will try again next year.

Delicious food, it's a must and super cheap. Only a few tables outside so get in quick or wait for a table. They do takeaway also.
