Open air, on the beach, beautiful ocean, watch the surfers. The grilled fish tacos were mushy and seemed steamed. Tasted fresh enough but texture was off. Shrimp tacos were good

Zippers is the place for good Mexican food, live music on the beach. It is a bit hard to find the first time but once you go there you'll always go back. Big Tony the owner has a fabulous staff to keep you well watered. We were there in 2015 when the Blackhawks were in the Stanley Cup finals. We... More

Grilled fish tacos were great. Margaritas were strong. Perfect views of ocean. Disappointed in the lack of tvs for watching sports.

Even after the hurricane destroyed much of the outdoor area, they were cleaned up and serving great drinks and good food.

Unfortunately, we can get burgers at home, so chose the Mexican fare. It was good, but average. The coconut shrimp was delicious, but the dipping sauce was just okay. It is a five-ten minute walk along the beach from El Zalate condos. (VRBO) Great view of local surfers and the sea!

We walked the mile (possible a little less) down the beach from our resort (Bel Air) to have dinner at Zipper's. We were able to get a table for the two of us right at the edge of their patio so we'd have an unobstructed view of the sane, the breaking waves, and the surfers enjoying the Saturday evening rides....

Zippers Beach Front Restaurant in San Jose del Cabo is located right on Zippers Beach in Costa Azul. I have been going there for over 20 years and have enjoyed many a cold Pacifico and Great Burgers while watching Surfers catch waves right in front of my tables.

Great stop from the airport to Cabo for some food and an ocean front table. Great view!! Food is good, but back home prices. Tostadas were $10 us. Service is good, nothing special. It is fun watching the surfers.

The staff at Zippers were really cool. Super friendly and kept your drinks filled. The food was really good. Great combos like ribs and shrimp available. The drinks were great and strong. Fantastic authentic margaritas. View is great, it's right on the beach. we walked down from our hotel. Great music - super talented guitarist playing classic rock like Santana... More
