“Great Tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The taco's were fabulous, all the hot dips were HOT beware, I love spice but wow these were hot. Bar staff really friendly and helpful, great burgers and burrittos, and more importantly they did not force you in unlike all other eateries.
My only complaint was a "lady" sat behind decided not only to smoke but spray her insect repellent which hit our food, not the fault of the owners at all, but maybe have tables a little further apart.

“Too expensive and tip is obligatory 12%+”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

12 tacos, 2 drinks and two bottles of water for almost 600 pesos. On top of that tip is automatically added to check and they don't tell you so you might tip twice.

Great location to grab lunch, fuel up and cool down. Generous table side selection of picante and hot sauces to try on for size.

“Name says it all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

If you love tacos, this is the place to go. No tex-mex but the real Mexican deal: small, excellent tacos, a nice cold beer and a friendly crew. Also free wifi so you can share the delight that is Yo Amo immediately with your social media friends. If you find yourself in Playa del Carmen, this place should definitely be in your list of places to go for a quick bite!

“GREAT FOOD!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We loved loved loved this place. Their enchiladas are the best we've ever had. The tacos (obviously) are yummy as well. We loved that they had two for one drinks each day. Overall great experience and we went there several times.
