We got there around 5p on a weekday. We sat right away. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive. Every staff had their process down and they all worked together, efficiently. It is very hot, it is not inside and you are sitting pretty close...More

We have visited a few times and this place just gets better. The food is great and drinks are even better. Don’t pass this up while in Playa.

The reviews got it right--best tacos in Playa! Short walk from 5th Avenue; expect a couple minute wait. The al pastor are what you want. Salute!

We used pesos, so not sure. However, most places would accept USD so quite likely they would.

Sorry thought you were asking about another place. Here I had tacos I forget the Spanish word for what it was but it was first on the menu and we got a variety. We also got a burrito type thing and that was great as well.
