Our concierge told us about this right around the corner. Some of the best tacos: al pastor and Carne asada. Great salsas, beer. This place is BUSY. Go early to get a table outside, but fans inside make it tolerable. Very clean and professional young maseros are rushing around but don't bother you if you want to finish your beer... More

This restaurant was recommended by SO MANY people, we just HAD to see what we were missing... Maybe all the recommendations was the problem! Maybe our expectations were too high... This is a very tiny establishment, which has a few tables on the sidewalk and a few tables crammed inside, with NO room between the other tables. If you have... More

Fantastic. Food couldn't be bettered, service was v helpful. We've waited a long time to eat here, usually the queue is so long we wouldn't be prepared to wait, but tonight there were two empty tables. Lucky lucky us. Very highly recommended for a bit of Mex atmosphere and spectacularly good food.

Great atmosphere! Tacos al pastor get it! Don't try and build your own menu, they know what they are doing. If the seat you are offered isn't your ideal take it anyway this is part of the experience!!

Not the absolute best tacos I have had in Mexico (my favorite is El Farolito), but pretty darn close. Very small with limited seating, no air conditioning, but for the price and good quality, we were willing to wait and sweat through our dinner. All in all an enjoyable dinner. Side note: Be sure and double check the total of... More

These tacos are pretty darn good! The place is packed with a mix of locals and tourists and the service is impeccable! We stuffed ourselves into a tacoma for the low price of 200 pesos, what a deal. My only disappointment was their lack of fish tacos :(

These have to be the best tacos I've ever had! I know pretty strong statement, but it's absolutely true:) the adobada tacos are their specialty and a must try if you visit Vallarta. Super affordable and the best meal we had on our trip. You might have to wait in line to be seated but it's definitely worth the wait.

They open at night and are closed on Sundays. If you are in town and want authentic Tacos Al Pastor… COME HERE! OMG, it is so cheap and the tacos are chopped FULL of meat. They are always slammed and usually have a crowd waiting to get in. It is worth it! Believe me, you will kick yourself if you... More
