Love, Love, Love Toby's and Toby!

I love this place. Toby is fantastic. The food is good. Toby will go out of your way for anything. He even went and purchased me wine! During football season he's closed on Sunday, but opens up for us Gringos and we can watch the games in English. I absolutely recommend to everyone! Such a... read more

We have been here in November. Season just started and we were the only guest one night. And the owner invited us to the opening a few days later. Nice service, good food. It is nothing luxurious but offers all you need and a cold beer.

We did not eat here, but a friend of ours did and liked it. He said the hamburger was one of the best he had eaten in Mexico.We never had a chance to eat here, but did check it out when we drove by on the main road in Xcalak. We were sorry we did not have a chance to... More

if you are in or near Xcalak, mx - stop by Toby's , it is clean and everything is prepared fresh, so be ready to wait a few. We had coconut lion fish, excellent and a fresh fish sandwich . One of the best fish sandwiches, I have ever had. Don't expect high end decor, but do expect high quality... More

We had a wonderful supper at Tobi's. The staff were friendly, and the meal was awesome. If you want great food in a local setting and this is the place.

We stopped in with some friends we are traveling with and were very pleasantly surprised. Not fancy by any stretch, but the food is amazing. We shared the coconut shrimp and lion fish and it was the best coconut anything I have ever had. I don't usually like fried food. The red snapper was delicious and really red snapper, not... More

Fish fingers were very good as were the chicken fingers. Good guacamole and chips. It's a local town in a town of 500 people. All we had were beers and appetizers, but I hear it's a local favorite!

We spent a delightful evening watching the Super Bowl game at Toby's Restaurant. Great fun was had by all as we eat, drank, and cheered throughout the game. We eat nothing fancy but hamburgers and fajita's were both were done well, were very tasty, and added to the whole experience. A great place to be when they are hosting a... More

First off- the Owner- Toby is a creative, positive, and really likeable guy whose persona affects everything in this simple little restaurant. The food is straightforward-nothing fancy. The main thing here is to order fish. One day we asked Toby if he had anything special and he brought out a 6 pound grouper which he expertly butterflied and served Vera... More
