If you like fish, this is the place to go! All of the fish they have is local catch...and the local catch is awesome. If you have ever had Dorado, (Mai Mai) it is amazing fish! Highly recommend it!

This restaurant has many people who really like to eat there but we are not in that group. The ribs are very good but the place is dirty. Make sure you do not need to use the washroom while you are there. We find that the ribs servers at Roy's are just as good and there is a much better... More

Hands down, the tenderest ribs I have ever eaten in a restaurant. The food is amazing even if the service can be a little slow sometimes. This place is almost always packed in the evening, so go early to get in quickly. It is worth the wait and the prices cannot be beat!

Have visited this restaurant several times and will probably not return. The ribs are great and reasonably priced. I had the experience of sitting inside rather than outside which we had done before and found that the facility was so lacking in sanitary conditions to the point I do not feel comfortable eating there any more. Too bad, as we... More

Every year when we go to Mazatlan we make this a "must stop." Their ribs are fabulous! The last time we were there in October 2015, the meal with potato, roll, and salad plus a beer or marguerite was $8.00 USD. Amazing. We could NOT eat it all and gave our left over ribs to a friend who lives in... More

Well we were told about this place by a few Canadians that spend their winters here. It is not 5 star dining so don't expect romantic candle light dinner BUT it was good and the value can NOT be beaten. Two full racks of pork ribs with BBQ orange glaze, baked potatoes, coleslaw and garden salad PLUS 4 beers $280... More

We eat here at least 2-3 times when in Maz....they are the best...it is a very busy place but worth standing in line. Get there early and you won't wait long. Could use a little upkeep in the place but maybe that isn't important when the food is so good. Very casual, a little smokey but everyone comes back time... More
