Hard to find... most taxi drivers hadn't heard of it. Topping casserole prepared daily is good, but variety limited. No alcohol, very limited menu. Service quite good and friendly

The family that runs the business was great - very patient in explaining how everything was prepared and all of our choices. The tortilla soup was fabulous and the "bowls" were delicious! The bill was only $25 for all four of us. They don't serve alcohol so make sure to have your margaritas ahead of time!

We chose this restaurant from the other reviews. It has a real "neighborhood" feel. The food was unique and amazing....I practically licked my bowl!

I agree with the previous reviews. I see why they are so highly rated. Elizabeth the wife of the owning couple was very nice and explained the history of their restarant, and their approach to their preparation and cooking - very interesting. They are a Mexican couple from Mexico City or nearby, and clearly love what they are doing and... More

Agree with everyone! Incredible food; wonderfully authentic! This little place is spectacular. The owner clearly loves what he does. He was very helpful; explaining the menu, the options, his cooking process and more. We took his advice - and he was 'spot on.' Pricing was unbelievably inexpensive! I thought he had made a mistake when he handed us the check.... More

This cozy escape in the middle of Cabo is a great little gen we ran into. It's a small, minimalist place with cute and comfortable decorations. Your waiters are the owner and his wife, who also works in the kitchen with two other people. They, together, run the operation. They explained that it takes them three hours to prep each... More

Great lunch spot, had we found it sooner we would have returned...it's not a typical taqueria and I liked the change. We eat a lot of tacos while in Cabo. We both got the daily cazuela which I think was Envy that day...my husband in corn tortillas and mine in a torta with cheese and it's grilled....cheese was crispy on... More

After reading the reviews for Las Cazuelas del Don, we decided we had to give them a try. Although it took out cab driver a while to find it, it was more than worth the cab "tour" of San Jose del Cabo. Even some of the locals don't know about this treasure. This small, open-air restaurant serves delicious, authentic food.... More

If you want to try something more along the local vibe, this is such a great place to eat. They serve your meal in a little pot (cazuela) and you put it on whatever you choose, tacos, tostadas etc. We had the portobello mushroom casuelada on tacos, and it was divine!! highly recommend! It is very close to Was-Mart if... More

Our dinner of tortilla soup and cazuelas was delicious, authentic, healthy, and ridiculously underpriced. Relaxed, quiet setting. We chatted with the gracious, wise owner, Alberto, and his eldest son for an hour. Wonderful, unforgettable evening!

Description
The best charcoal grilled american steak cut, fresh local chicken and vegetable dishes, slow cooked in a traditional cazuela (clay pot) for additional, unique flavor... Simply delicious! El Don invites you to kill your capital sins... Bite by bite!! Where about: Coming from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo on the Transpeninsular Highway, you pass Walmart (on your right hand side), at 100 meter is a traffic light wait for the left arrow, cross the hiaghway (there is a "Gift Shop" right on the corner), we are on the same block as the Oxxo store but on the other corner.
