And when you do only one thing, you do it right! This outdoor restaurant is a favorite of Mazatelcos for a reason, great food at a great price.

This is a gem of a restaurant serving pork and other pig related dishes! A simple sandwich or on flour tortillas with their condiments and you have tons of flavor!

Was turned on to this place by family friends who eat here all the time. The tacos and the service were awesome.

We read the reviews and decided to try it. Don't let the fact that it's a local favorite discourage you, in fact it's the reason you should go. The front explains everything you need to know in plain English and the servers are so very nice and helpful. The food is great and do eat the sauce and vegetables served... More

The Best Carnitas in Mazatlan. This place is a special place. Can't believe it has taken me so long to find it after 35 years. What a wonderful place for a family to share good times and great carnitas, tacos, tortas, quesodeas. Wonderful atmosphere, can't tell by driving by until you walk in and look around, it unfolds in front... More

This place was recommended by our pulmonia driver, and it was outstanding. We took a bus and walked a couple of blocks off of the main street to get here. Pork served many different ways, all tasty. Lots of good condiments offered. The cashier speaks excellent English and can answer any questions you may have. Be prepared to love it... More

Any pulmonia can take you downtown to El Bigotes for lunch. The name means The Mustache. They have the very best pork that you will ever eat. It is served with boletos and/or flour or corn tortilla's. Along with all the fixings. You eat outside under the trees. Very cool there and with lots of atmosphere. The locals also love... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for years and really hasn't changed. You can order your pork without the fat, which is great. You can get tortas with cheese or plain. Quesada' s or the plain corn tortilla s that come along with your order of pork. The prices are reasonable and can vary from visit to visit so just... More

We are staying in old town, but didn't want to miss out on a lunch at El Bigotes. We walked 4.5 miles just to eat at this place. (We could've taken the bus or a red truck or a pulmonia, but we wanted the exercise.) They don't serve beer, but the cold soft drinks really hit the spot after that... More

If you like pork then El Bigotes is a great spot for you. They start the pig roast early in the morning and stay open as long as there is something to eat. You can order port on a bun or do it the way we do and order 1/4, 1/2, or a Kilo of meat. The waitress will bring... More
