We have traveled Riviera Maya extensively and this is some of the best food we have sampled. The pastor meat was amazing. We went back twice and paid around 10 to 15 dollars both times. The place gets very busy but the wait is worth it. Can't wait to go back to this no-nonsense eatery.

This is a simple restaurant with not a very extensive menu. They serve some local dishes and some general Mexican dishes. The place is simple and away from the main street. It has a parking lot adjacent to the restaurant.

Bring cash - no credit cards here. Great local fare in a rustic open-air setting. Try their tacos Pastor!

Nice, clean place. Tasty food, local cuisine, good prices. While having dinner, in three tables there were American tourists, but the mayority were locals. Fast service, sui generis place, popular concept, but definitely middle class prices.

This food wasnt seeved in air conditioning. The menus were in English and Spanish, but most of the patrons besides us were locals. This is the best guacamole I've had other than my husbands! The queso fundido was yummy as well. If you want inexpensive, hand made, fresh food in Cozumel, eat here!

After every dive at the scuba gamma diving center located just nearby, this place was our canteen. It's very cheap and incredibly tasty ! The staff is super friendly and the atmosphere makes you feel like a local at home !
