Description: From steak to seafood, vegetables to burgers, anything that Rufo can throw on his grill he does -- and to much success, too. The outdoor restaurant fits perfectly with the charcoal grill flavors, fresh corn tortillas and hearty homestyle portions that makes Rufo's so popular. There's often a crowd during high season but it's worth coming early or staying late to get a taste. Rufo is a personable host and takes extra effort to make each customer's experience unique and fully satisfying. He has even been known to bring out a large platter of grilled steak, ribs, fish and shrimp for a group to sample when they can't make up their mind. There isn't a huge bar selection but the margaritas are strong and the beer is cold. On a hot Zihuatanejo night, what more could you ask for?

For those who have visited Rufo's in the past and are worried that the new wall alongside may have a negative impact on your experience there -- no worries! The new wall is lined with gorgeous plants and hung with some of the best paintings I have seen in Zihuatanejo. All of which are for sale at extremely reasonable prices. The total effect is to make this special little spot feel even more special and intimate. As always, the food quality and service are top-notch. Their salsa is my favorite in Zihua. I have eaten there many times and the quality is consistent.

I have eaten there several times and it is always great. Take your own bottle of wine if you want, or order off the menu. You will not be disappointed.

Rufo's Grill serves delicious dinners from a home made grill made from a fuel drum that has been sawed in half and filled with wood coals. And the rustic ambiance is peppered with the whimsical paintings of Zihuatanejo's most creative artist abd set to the cool jazz of Zihuatanejo,s best musicians. My dinners at Rufo's were the highlight of all my dinning adventures in Mexico.,
