As you enter Tulum Pueblo from the north, take a right at the second light onto Satellite Norte and do a U-Turn at about the third street. On your right find the diamond-shaped yellow street sign that has a bull on it, and below it the name El Asadero. Don't look for the sign on the unpretentious building, it is tiny. The wait staff are very attentive and the food is awesome. We each ordered the Arrachera dinner which is under $20USD, with a steak that is grilled BBQ style and delicious, served with tortillas, three wonderful sauces, a sausage, grilled nopales cactus (I live in Santa Fe, NM, and have them all over my property, and never knew that grilled nopales have such a nice citrus-y taste) and veggies and your choice of grilled potato or onion. Take cash (US or pesos), they don't take cards, because this is a place where the locals eat. It is open to the street, which is nice in the evening. Nos gusto mucho!
