Plenty of screens (including a huuuuuge projection on a wall) to satisfy multiple sports enthusiasts, very good food (the tortas readily feed 2 people, the wings are delicious and very spicy), your choice of a good selection of Mexican beers, all with good, prompt service....I am not a frequenter of sports bars, but my guest is, so it was nice for me to go to a sports bar that has other things to offer. The air conditioning and clean bathrooms were cherries on top.More

Only sport bar in Mahahual. Excellent food quality, limited but super tasty. Grilled chicken salad and hamburger my favorite. Haven’t eaten such soft and tasty ribs. They offer wide variety of drinks but michelada and margarita on the rocks are best. Thanks to Alex, William...and owners. Great service.More

If you are looking for a place for dinner, this is a good one. It can work well like sports bar and has a place for children, where they can play with xbox or just simple watching around. The food is very good, the Tortas...Gigantes are really gigantic and the variety of fruit waters are fantastic. Make sure to bring cash just in case. Service is amazing, it seems to be the owner the one who served us, and is a pretty awesome person. Surely I will come back.More

What a great find in the residential section of Mahahual. Huge dining area with 4 TV's playing different games but one does not seem to interfere with any of the others. The also have a nice level pool table in the back. If there is...a good game on they will project it on the wall. Talk about big screen, LOL They even have an area kids can play X Box, how cool is that? The food is really good and huge portions. For the price its VERY affordable!! Staff is friendly and service was fast. All enclosed and air conditioned too. It was funny, when we first asked to play pool they gave us 2 cues that were wood and very light weight. After they saw that we were serious pool players they gave us the "good" cues to use. Very considerate!More

Our family of seven with kids ages 10-16 found Padrinos on our last night in Mahahual. It is not on the Malecon but in Nuevo Mahahual across the street from Papis Pizzas. Padrinos is a big sports restaurant with many tvs and a menu only...in Spanish. The people in Mahahual are all very friendly and an amazing man who saw we were the only tourist in the restaurant, helped us read the menu. The mexican food was all amazing! The hamburgers were huge and very good. With two beers and seven meals, our bill came to $50! It was by far the cheapest meal we have ever had anywhere down the coast from Cancun to Mahahual. And the food was great! We were just sad that we found it on our last night.More

This restaurant has the most TVs and the best selection of sporting events in the area. They also have what I call an overstocked bar meaning just about anything that you want to drink both alcoholic and nonalcoholic will be available. They also have a...pool table for those that are into that. The menu is quite varied with daily specials at very reasonable prices. The restaurant is located in the Casitas area of Mahahual also known as Nuevo Mahahual.More

Very few places in town have chicken wings and they have a few different kinds of wings to choose from. During sporting events this place has many people and is a lot of fun
