Blink and you might miss it. This Taco place is actually outside on the street, you'll see them working on the spit throughout late afternoon with tacos ready at night. Cheap and an absolute treat! Absolutely delicious.

I'd read reviews of this restaurant before our three-night stay in Sayulita, and was looking forward to eating there. My only regret is that we didn't find it until our second night and only got to eat there twice. Tacos were delicious, employees were friendly...More

I am a huge Al Pastor fan and this place is the best I have had all over Mexico and the US. Be sure to get one Volcan Style for steamy melty cheese and a bit of a crunch on the shell.More

Absolutely amazing - so simple, fresh, and tasty. Do not leave without eating here! They often have two locations but we sat down in Munchies which has great drinks!

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.
