I really should have started bookmarking places I wanted to eat prior to coming to Cabo. Obviously being a touristy town, there are many things geared towards the American tourist. Everything is in English and everything is expensive. Finding a place that the locals frequent that is actually great street food is hard to come by. Luckily, Yelp pointed out... More

Stopped by for a quick dinner - 3 tacos for 75 pesos. No tables, but we were able to sit at the bar next door to eat our meal. The tacos (beef, chorizo and pork) were delicious and prepared quickly. There were several items at the counter to dress the tacos: cucumber, guacamole, cabbage, limes and salsas. Opens at 7pm.

I swear this place is becoming the only reason we keep coming back to Cabo. Simply the best!!! Fresh ingredients, cooked right in front of you, with all the salsas and extras you could want. $2 per taco, you just can't beat this place for flavor and price. See you in March!!

If you like tacos, prepare to have your mind blown. Bar next door is great - will order tacos for you to enjoy with your drinks. On point!

Wow, It doesn't get any better than this...Piping hot tacos as fresh as you can get, great condiments. I love the carne asada and the pastor tacos the best. At 20 pesos taco, that's a whopping $1 each. 3 will fill you up.. and the bar next door doesn't hurt either...unfortunately they don't open til 7, but it is well... More

This was the most delicious taco we had our entire trip. Street meat was so friggin good we may have to go back. We hung at the bar next door and there was always a line with locals and tourists. A serious MUST DO. So reasonably priced and delicious (sausage was my fav).

They are the best street vendor tacos in town! You want to sit on the curb and eat real Mexican tacos this is the place! We went here 3 times during our visit. Cash only. no beer so bring your own beer. Still a great place to eat at. They open at 7:30pm every night.

Can't even believe how delicious these tacos are! Found this taqueria 3 years ago and have dreamed about them ever since! They did not disappoint! We had a party of 17 people go there one night for dinner. They served us so quickly it was hard to believe. Our family of 4 ate 16 tacos! The grilled onions are the... More

Authentic $2 tacos that are crazy good. Pick your meat, ask for grilled onions, then pile on the toppings at your discretion (pico, tomatillo sauce, hot salsa, raw onions, cucumbers, peppers, etc). Eat a few, then eat a few more. Go back the next day and repeat. Real food, real people, real good!
