Been coming here for nearly 20 years. Great tacos al pastor, the best in Playa del Carmen. Also the arrachera ((steak) are great.. you can’t go wrong. Since our last visit in 2018 the place has gotten a little bigger but the food is amazing....And very inexpensive.. very highly recommendedMore

Another favorite we have been hitting for years... we always go to the one on Constituientes, not 30th. Love the renovation and better fans!

This place was great. The tacos and margaritas were amazing. My husband and I ordered so many tacos. All was amazing. The pastor taco was probably my favorite. When we looked around all the drinks were super-sized. We weren't looking for that style of drink...which probably has alot of sweetener. We personally asked the bartender to make us more of an authentic margarita and it was so delicious!!! Cudos to the great bartender. The atmosphere was great. Very inexpensive menu. I loved everything about this place. Can't wait to go back. See you soon. :)More

I can’t tell you if it’s authentic or not because I don’t think I know enough about “authentic” Mexican food to make that call. What i do knownis that the Al pastor was amazing and everything we ordered was delicious. You can get beers and...cocktails. It’s very casual and I imagine pre-COVID they used to pack this place. Nowadays tables are socially distanced which makes me feel good and slightly bad. I feel for them but they are doing an amazing job of maintaining safety. Servers all had masks. Limited capacity. Temp scan etc. totally enjoyable dinner with the family and even thought it was by far the cheapest dinner of the trip it might have been the best tasting.More

Great time and helpful staff! A bit hard to order food as vegetarian options are very few...even as a flexi vegan! Good experience overall...highly recommend juices and horchata!

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