“Casual, cheap, and awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Open air ambiance, waitstaff that will help you practice your Spanish, and comida deliciosa y barata! Margaritas are killer and the size of those carnival goldfish bowls. The special queka chilanga (like a quesadilla made with a stone ground corn tortilla and queso blanco) costs literally 1 USD. We had 3 apps, 2 margaritas each, 2 grill entrees (including filet mignon), soft drinks and dessert and the bill was about $40. Love, love, love!

“Excellent grilled Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This restaurant is associated with the La Mission restaurant, but this one is less formal and much more inexpensive. A large grill is on display as soon as you enter, and they have excellent food. There is a shared table of side dishes as well as a large menu. Everything the four of us ordered was very good. I'll be back.

“Cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant isn't very clean, the service isn't that great, and the food is average. The beers we ordered had mold on the bottom of the bottles. The servers seemed annoyed with our being there. The food is very inexpensive, and you get a decent amount, but it isn't that good. Eat here if you a want a cheap meal. Don't waste your time if you're looking for a memorable eating experience.

“Great Casual Taco Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I've been to this restaurant twice now with friends and family and have always had a great experience. The margaritas are excellent and the food is great too. Taco bar begins at 6pm and you can add your own delicious toppings to your tacos! Service has also been very good. Great restaurant for dining out in Cozumel a bit off the tourist path.

“Authentic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We went here on a "date" night with another couple but, could easily have brought our children to this place. It was open and airy, and overall had a low-key vibe. It was sparsely decorated - it had this kool skeleton lady which we sat by (see pic).

The food was delicious. So flavourful! Loved my mini chili rellenos! All of us enjoyed our dining experience there and could and would recommend it to anyone!
