Fun beachfront location

Stopped here for drinks and snacks twice. Both times mango and traditional margaritas were excellent!. Ceviche and salsa excellent. Reasonable prices and lots of fun. Make sure you leave your mark on the poles.

A perfect cervesa on the beach. Local music and need more tables, watch the waiters pick up a shovel and make room for more tables. CLEAN BATHROOMS! If your on a walk to bucerius, a great place to stop!

We stumbled across this little gem whilst walking along the beach & on a whim decided to call in for a lunch. The food is tasty & truly authentic Mexican cuisine, plus it is extremely well price. We stayed at the Riu Palace Pacifico for two weeks & often walked up the beach to have lunch here!

Took a 45 minute walk down beach from resort, this restaurant is right on the beautiful beach. Had the Cadillac margarita which was very tasty. The guacamole was way better than the resorts I could have eaten it all day!! And the jumbo shrimp dish was yummy, I had the butter garlic, bacon wrapped and alfredo sauce on mine out... More

Right on the beach, a few people recommended we check out The Fat Boy/El Gordo's Marisco. It was pricey, but delicious. Would go back again...

We had lunch on the beach on a Sunday afternoon during the blessing of the fishing boats. The beach and restaurant was packed. We agreed,to share our table with another couple. It was a pleasant experience. We ordered a burger and a club sandwich. Both were good. We also order a bucket of 5 beers so we could watch the... More

One of the more popular places. Good cadilac margaritas, 8 USD. The shrimp and lobster combo is good. There were 6 of us and the total was 220 USD. Not bad at all. You have a great view of the sunset. I would definitely go back.

We have been regulars in bucerias for years and have always made a point of stopping in at Fat Boys for large shrimp and drinks. Of course David the singer is really the big reason we go, he is so entertaining! A few weeks ago we went to Fat Boys for dinner. A male waiter sat us down, asked us... More
