Description: The Restaurant The Braseros has over 25 years of open, began as selling grilled chicken, cheese, charro beans, marinated meat. Back then it was called Chano and Chon, the name of the braziers was given because our first course was to make a barbecue in a small brazier that we put on the table on a partition and then people had just cook their meats were 1 / 4 chicken, a piece of meat for the grill, a sausage and a piece of pork marinated for using those little braziers was to put the name of Restaurant braziers. And eventually it was changing its menu, we were the first restored in Zihuatanejo that sold tacos al pastor Mexico City style, then grilled dishes include, a combination of pure meat with vegetables or grilled meats in these dishes put them funny names, like the whale that was the most sold at the time they request a lot of diners, as is Sarape dishes, which I Vez, a Penguin, the stubborn mule, the Mexican, a Zihuatanejo. We now have 30 different single grill dishes. After Mexican Food believe we now have the largest menu in Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo on our menu since there are more than 140 dishes. We can proudly say that in the braziers of these 140 dishes all we miss are chicken broth, beans and rice all the other dishes we make at the moment, nothing is ready or prepared yesterday morning.In braziers open from 8:00 am until 1:00 am every day of the year except on December 24 and on day 1 "of January. Our strength is that The Restaurant Los Braseros tourists from around the world can eat every day without repeating the same dish.The braziers are tourists from around the worldThe food we prepare groups are: • Breakfasts• Huaraches (is a large tortilla with black beans inside the tortilla and prepare various meats, eggs or vegetarian), are green or red sauce• Sandwiches and Burgers• Synchronized• Tacos• We are unique in Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo we sell the fish and shrimp tacos Ensenada style• Cheeses• Grill Combinations• American Courts• Salads• Soups• Creams• Meats• Birds typical Mexican food• Shellfish• In Mexico the Mole• Filled Crepes Fruit and Vegetables Natural• Desserts• Juices• Hot Drinks• Cold Drinks• Bar Drinks

“Go for the Shrimp Tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We were told about the shrimp tacos from people we had met on the beach. We tried it out and they are fantastic. One serving is 3 tacos with great sauce over top. Filling and satisfying. Enjoy.

“Always delicious Always reliable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We go to ixtapa at least four times a year and no trip is complete without a visit to Los Braseros!

Their al pastor tacos are the best in town!!! Their chicken consome is hearty and delicious. The huaraches are incredible. Also less we'll known is their pitchers of lemonade.

The place is super clean, the staff very nice , not a lot of English but their menus are bilingual!

Go Try it!!!

“Awesome and Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

If you're an authentic Mexican food lover and from north of the Mason Dixon, then you must go to Los Braseros when you are in Zihua. They offer a huge menu of authentic, delicious, pore clogging Mexican delights. Although touristy seafoods are on the menu, save that for places on the beach. At Braseros, focus on tacos al pastor, tacos de bistec, enchilades verdes, sopa, pollo mexicano, and margaritas.

All of those dishes are great with the included salsas. Frequently, my family seeks out authentic Mexican foods in Chicago, but this Taquerilla + is the best. The Don Sirloin of the West, Los Braseros will never disappoint. Just make sure you have plenty of water, and a shower near by.

“So much batter on their prawn and fish tacos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

We ate at Los Braseros last year twice as we so much enjoyed their prawn and fish tacos. Each dish had 3 tacos and in each taco are 2 huge prawns along with their sweet and tangy creamy cabbage slaw dotted with raisins and tomatoes. Each dish is 97 pesos and the serving is quite large.

This year we returned to Los Braseros again for their prawn and fish tacos but it is unfortunate that the batter on all 3 of our plates (2 prawns and 1 fish order) were so thick and over battered that it became doughy like a doughnut instead of crispy batter like it should be.

We also tried an order of chilaquiles for 47 pesos which came with a nice mexican cheese and bend sauce. For me, there was just too much beans instead of the cheese.

Overall, we were disappointed with the food quality on our visit this time but we may return to give them another chance.
