Best Poc Chuc!

You can order anything you want - as long as it's poc chuc! Choices are beef, pork or chicken. Get the meal which includes black bean colado, grilled onions and tortillas. Speaking of tortillas, order the 'manteca' (doesn't that sound better than 'lard'?). They are worth the calories! Don't be put... read more

As other reviewers said this is a slightly seedy hole-in-the-wall inside and out with a limited menu. The food was pretty tasty, but there were no prices on the menu. I think the owner looks at you and decides what to charge. As tourists, the prices were much too high for what we got.

It is a small restaurant with plastic chairs. They still serve Coke in the tall glass bottles. We had a group of five and were... More
