You can tell by the tables full of people out front that this is one of the most popular restaurants in Sayulita. And for good reason. The arachera con queso is insanely good if you're a cheese lover, and if not just stick to the arachera -- it's fabulous. Also the owners/staff are excellent. The lemonade is a major draw... More

This was the second stop on our 2 taco stop tour. We started at Taco on the Street. Amazing how different they are. This spot has a few great twist on the taco including grilled onions, grilled tomato salsa, chili onions, about 8 little condiments to add to your taco. We the fish tacos here got a first place and... More

Hands down, these are the best steak tacos in town and maybe anywhere. We never miss this place when we are in town.

Ate here with a group of 6. We got about every taco on the menu. They were delicious and our server was so sweet. Just a heads up the only alcohol they serve is beer so if you like other drinks this isn't the place. Also there is only 4 or 5 tables and a small bar area so be... More

Great tacos! We each had the arachurra and the stuffed pepper. Both delicious. The service is very friendly and helpful. Would have eaten more but we were already full.

This place is absolutely incredible. The price is average but the food is well above average. It seems that if an employee needs to be out on the street talking for the food then the food is not talking for itself. This food needs nobody to speak for it. Just look at the always full tables and saddle up at... More

We were not disappointed in the least with our lunch here. We had a group of six and between us ordered the chile relleno, rib we and arrancherra. So perfect! These tacos are a bit larger than most--I personally only had one chile relleno taco and it was the ideal size for me: not too much not too little. It... More

So good, so cheap, so filling, so inventive, so fun. And their aguas frescas are so incredibly good we sometimes go just to get one of those. If you love good steak tacos, go to El Itacate and you'll go back every night.

I wandered in here without reading review first. Casual, outdoor eating only. Great chile relleno taco- the best thing I ate in Sayulita at any price. I think it cost around $30 pesos, but it came with accompaniments including salsas and beans, so it was pretty filling. We also ordered guacamole which was excellent as well. There are other less...

by that I mean - all the beef tacos were good - so don't spend too much time agonizing over which beef cut to order. But do make sure to order the agua drinks - sooo good and refreshing. Service very friendly. Didn't give it a five not because it wasn't delicious but it's not 5-star style cooking.
