This is the best place to get Tacos el Pastor bar none. You can't beat the prices either. I have been coming here for 6 or 7 years now. You can eat there (outdoor patio style) or take out. The guacamole is decent as well (how can you go wrong? well, i've had some pretty boring guac on the island)... More

Service was good and staff friendly but just found the pork burritos to be okay. Drinks were cold and prices were very reasonable.

Great place to go and have taco's late at night but they are open during the day as well. We love their tacos, quesadillas and pozole. They do a variety of mexican food including, pozole, tacos, quesadillas, burrittos, tortas (mexican sandwiches). They have great aqua fresca (flavored water). The tamarindo water is the best. Food is great. Service is a... More

If you're willing to walk a few blocks away from the Main Street to get some good and authentic tacos then this is the place for you. We were recommended here by a few locals so we decided to give it a shot. They have a nice selection of tacos, burritos, tortas and more. We ended up going twice because... More

The food was very good...although I wouldn't say the al pastor is as good as Los Seros, which so far is our favorite in Cozumel. Service was very friendly and they have wifi. We'd go back but would probably explore other places first.

The Arrachera And Pastor tacos here are fantastic. Try some of the soup, the Pozole is great and super local. The 3 gringas for 63 pesos is a sweet deal too. A lot of Cozumel regulars always go to Los Otates. They also serve beer.

We had dinner here and really enjoyed the food, the service and the payed back atmosphere. We were the only tourists. The place is located just 5-10 mins walk from down town, easy to find. Try the gringas!

Totally awesome food and prices. We visited a few times because it was so wonderful. Cheek, tongue and BBQ tacos were available on the menu. Friendly service and excellent flavor!

Great place for tacos! Have been here a handful of times. Tacos al pastor are the best! Great for late nights. Parking is easy to find.

Yup, this is the real deal. If you want tacos al pastor, late night snack or just have a craving for REAL TACOS, this is it. There is only one place that compares (El Sitio). However, they serve different type of tacos and are not open super late. Both are on par with each other and I recommend getting tacos... More
