Excellent local food and ambience. Try the Pibil and watermelon juice. To die for! Go early on the weekend if you want to be sure the bbq hasn’t run out before you get there! Really friendly staff and absolutely delicious food.

This place is amazing. You can taste local food and local life. We had a mix of appetizer with some Nachos, corn tortillas with cheese and guacamole. We choose for drinks very good local homemade juices. Very good!

There's a reason that this place is so popular! The food is great, with a variety of options on the menu. The portions are big and the prices are excellent. There is also a playground that can keep the kids entertained until the food arrives.
