Delicious, fresh food, very authentic Mexican menu, yummy margaritas! Enjoyed a leisurely lunch with business friends. Desserts were excellent, too.

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

You will not be disappointed with their food. We caught local fish and they cooked it up for us. The staff could not be more helpful. They also have air conditioning. Prices are good and Sonny is such a welcoming manager. Eat, drink and be merry!

“Good prices, wonderful food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We always go to Herradero whenever we are in San Jose, always for dinner as it seems so festive and fun there in the evening with the twinkly lights. Our current favorite is the "Grandpa's bowl" and for us, the beef, though it is available with chicken or shrimp. The meat is soooo tender and has been cooked to submission along with some sort of thin chilis and green onion, cheese melted throughout and chunks of avocado that have been stirred in at the last minute, keeping them fresh. Ladle it into their wonderful homemade tortillas and one bowl is enough for 2 adults. We need to expand our horizons and have breakfast there, as I understand it is really good too. Perhaps the breakfast is $, but the dinners, at $$, are still reasonable.

Great margaritas, delicious molcajetes, out of this world arrachera flank steak, yum guacamole and salsa, wonderful homemade tortillas. Mexican coffee ended the meal with a show. Great atmosphere, fun wait staff, very enjoyable!

“A visit to San Jose del Cabo is not complete without visiting El Herradero's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We spent a week in San Jose del Cabo in February of 2013. Of the seven days there we went to El Herradero's five times. Whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner these folks are awesome! They are so friendly, helpful, fun and make anyone feel welcome, at home and like family. God bless them! If it is drink time you must have Carlos (Charlie) make a BASIL mojito! Yes, basil is sooo much better than mint and Carlos knows how to muddle them to perfection! The authentic, regional food is simply delicious. Perhaps if you visit during the day one of the gals will teach you to make corn tortillas - way fun. You must go to El Herradero's at least once during your stay in wonderful San Jose del Cabo!
