“Delicious chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Another great place to either eat in or take home. Can't beat the price, or quality of the food. The pickled onions are great. We often stopped after a day at the beach for a late lunch/early supper. Have been going there for years.

“Never a disappointment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We have been here on both of our visits to Isla Mujeres and both times the food was perfect. You can't beat the prices or quality of food here. Excellent service too.


Closes at 5pm or earlier if they run out.

“Amazing Chicken!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Fresh chicken, rubbed with mild spices, cooked slow on a rotisserie, what more do you need?
Located on the north end of Hildago Street in El Centro.
Picked up a chicken one afternoon and glad we did. We were looking for a simple meal for our room that night and this place hit the spot. We did a carry out order and for $8 we walked out with a tender, tasty whole chicken(cut up for us), black bean puree, pickled onions, rice, salsa picante(not too spicy)and a stack of fresh made tortillas! All for $8!! We ate on it for two days! I don't know what how they grow their chickens in that region but every chicken dish we ate was tender, juicy and full of flavor. This one was no exception! Highly recommend this place. Simple and delicious!!!

“Absolutely delicious street dining! Perfect lunch spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I decided on this little spot at the north end if Hidalgo. Best choice we made since arriving on the island. We split a half chicken for lunch and it was the perfect amount. Delicious food and stellar prices... 100 pesos for food and 2 cokes. We'll definitely be going back.
