Try the Pique. It is like a taco pizza. Frijoles especial are so good. Great service. Family friendly. Truly a local place.

This is a very local taco restaurant. We are from mexico and we're looking for something we usually eat for dinner when we go out. It's not fancy but really good taste and not expensive. Just a 5-10 min can drive away from the turist zone. It's safe and clean. Gracias El Pique.

Tacos are good some days, bad others. Service during busy hours is beyond awful, had to wait an hour for my food. Completely overrated.

We love you and will always love you. My 2 favorites here are the chuleta (pork) tacos w/cheese and the arrachera tacos w/cheese. I also like that when you get the chuleta they bring out the pork chop bone as an extra treat. We’ve also had the bean soup in the past which is great and if you’ve never tried... More

They offer great tacos and the beer is cold and inexpensive. We liked the atmosphere and enjoyed this eatery.

When I SCUBA dive in Cozumel, I ask the dive masters where they eat. This place is 30 blocks off the beach so not a tourist location. It even has a walk up window that the local use. You get a lot of authentic Mexican food for not a lot of money.

Simply put, Taqueria el Pique has the best tacos on the island. The menu is painted on the wall, there is a great outdoor seating area in the back, and the service is good. Enough said. The people writing negative reviews are just upset that their tacos aren't like Taco Bell's.

Very upset, we listened. Our meal was very disappointing. Even the horachata wasn't on par. It wasn't my last meal on the island thank goodness.

These tacos are delicious! It's a bit of a trek from the main touristy areas, but you are rewarded for your effort with delicious food at a crazy, reasonable price. The tacos are fresh and delicious, the prices more than fair. We make a visit every trip!

You want a great taco - beef, chicken, pork, other - served Mexican style that will make you yearn for more...then this is your spot. Located back in the "real Cozumel" part of town, but easy to find - just ask anyone. Simple, great tacos at a ridiculously cheap price.
