Amazing prices and delicious tacos. Had the Al Pastor and was not let down! Highly recommend stopping by his stand when in Sayulita (also the shop in San Pancho was excellent as well, Tacos Al Pastor Tal Ivan). 👌🏻

This was a great place to eat and it got better each night the later you went. It was fantastic to sit there in your plastic chair on the street and eat some good tacos.

We love this stand, we went to eat there many times. Their tacos have so much flavor. Beware of the red sauce one is extremely hot, a little goes a long way.

We ate tacos from this stand a few times, always fresh, always tasty, always making you want just one more. Once you receive your order, you can chose your own toppings and put as little or as much as you please. Take your plate across...More

Night 3 in beautiful Sayulita. After some fantastic meals at the highest rated restaurants on TA, we decided to try Ivan’s street tacos. I know, No Street Food, but the TA reviews made it sound like it was the exception. It was almost 7: o’clock...More

Fantastic street tacos that are served at night on the street. They cut the meat in front of you and drop it right on the taco shells. Then they guy cuts a piece of pineapple and catches it in the filled taco shells. Amazing. Also...More

This place is great. It is right in front of a meat market, so I assume the meat comes from there. The taco stand opens at 6 or 7 at night depending on when it is ready. It attracts a little crowd, but they are...More

They start setting up around 5/6pm, open around 7pm and are open until they run out. One day we ate there at 11:30pm and there was plenty and another day almost everything was gone by 9pm. So it varies on the day and demand.
