This is a "must-go" while you are in Cabo! Javier makes it so much fun. ("The Fifth Beattle") :) :) The tacos are fan-freakin-tastic! My favorite is the Pollo. Shrimp is good too, but I prefer the chicken. The Tortas are messy-mouth-watering good as well!...More

Not super hard to find the first time, it’s just a block and a half away from Cabo Wabo. But literally just a whole in the wall. Javier, the owner, cook, and entertainer was so nice. We went there 2x during our stay for lunch....More

Ten years ago,I happened to walk by an outdoor taco stand with chairs outside and a long line of Americans waiting to place an order (They were permanant residents). I asked about the food and they raved about it. Gordo ,( because he is rather...More

Had a great meal there. Javier was very kind, keeping the place open long enough for my wife and I to have the best tacos of the entire trip. The fish tacos were piled with fresh (not deep fried) mahi mahi (not a bunch of...More

We saw him June 15, and he looked tired. He smiled when we asked about his health, but he had obviously lost weight. He said the "government" was the reason he couldn't sell beer right now, but the tacos are as good as ever.
