At the risk of sounding snobby(I am FAR from being a foodie)I think that the abundance of local taco trucks back home set me up for a letdown.The tacos were good,but I have had better back home.And the prices were in line with other taco places around PV.There is always a wait to get in which I think adds somewhat...

This is our very favorite place to eat! The pastor taco's with a bite of pineapple is outstanding. The cheese and mushroom dip and a platter of grilled onions with a tasty margarita. I could eat there every night!

People obviously like this restaurant as there is usually a line up. The wait isn't too long though so stick around. The main meat, Al Pastor, is charbroiled. One of the few places still doing it that way. The sauces are excellent and their other tacos are very good too. Prices are very good and they even offer margaritas.

We used to eat here DAILY when we last came years ago, back when it wasn't as busy and popular as it was right near our hotel, we would never go a day without their Shrimp Taco, probably the best taco I've ever had in my life! Well, now they no longer have Shrimp, I was so dissapointed! When I... More

I've read all the reviews and have seen the very long lines. Unjust wasn't that impressed with the food. I'm not saying it's a bad place at all but it wasn't what I expected after years of walking by and seeing the pork cooking.

we ate here for dinner two nights on our 4 night trip! They are only open for dinner as far as we saw. There is always a wait but flag down a waiter they are happy to give you a margarita to sip on while you wait for a table. Do yourself a favor and order a round of al... More

We enjoyed a dinner here for my sister's b-day. While the wait was a bit long, bar service was provided while we waited, and they were hustling to get people seated. The table was tiny, we sat outside, and loved all of it. With 4 people, 8 drinks and more than enough food, the bill was less than $10CDN pp.... More

We always enjoy tacos here after a night of drinking. They are open until 2am. Expect a wait during high season

I have been wanting to try this place because there is always a line. My husband is not a tacos fan, but he had to admit the food was really good. Very reasonable and great value for the the money.

This is a cool place to get a few tacos. But honestly, the wait is ridiculous and tacos are tacos, you can find very good tacos at a lot of places in Puerto Vallarta.
