We eat here a lot. The menu is extensive and the prices are low. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner, though it can be kind of hot mid-day. Typical Mexican fare, but most meals are served with rice, beans and shredded lettuce salad, and include...More

Some fellow travelers had been here and suggested it for more authentic food. It is a popular place with locals and it can be hard to get a table at times. We ordered the meals that were 55 pesos (at the time of publishing this...More

This place does the best breakfast and lunch, it's a local place, cheap, no frills, amazing food. I'd recommend sopes, panuchos, salbutes and the carne asada though everything is really good.

We have eaten here twice and both times were impressed with the food. Fast, hot, fresh and tasty. The salbutes, tostadas and sobes were really good and only 7 pesos each. The atmosphere is typical of an authentic cheap place, hot and sticky, but for...More

I was introduced to this restaurant on my last night in Tulum and what a shame that was because I would have eaten here every day if I could have! The food is amazing, arrives fast, and is SO INEXPENSIVE: a big authentic meal and...More

Ignore the reviews about "hygiene alert" - the fact is this is an authentic Mexican restaurant that isn't catering to tourists and therefore isn't decorated or designed to please them. It's straight up, it's hot, it's all outdoors and many of the staff speak little...More

Don't get me wrong... I love the local Mexican places, the little holes-in-the-walls where the locals like to dine. We read about this place on TripAdvisor so we thought we'd give it a try. Maybe we just caught it on a bad day, but our...More
