“Best food in Market 28”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We have been going to Restaurante Atotonilco in Market 28 for over 20 years. Excellent service, very inexpensive & good service. The waiters remember you from year to year & are anxious to please. Go for lunch - 55 pesos for the comida del dia. You get a choice of two or three soups, a menu full of delicious meals which usually come with rice, beans & a little lettuce salad and your drink (sandia is the best!) is included. You can't go wrong with any of the meals. There are mariachi groups always playing music around the restaurant area. Plus you get a bowl of tortilla chips and sauces to munch on while your food is being prepared.

“Best Place to Eat in Mercado 28! Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

It is a shame that most people who visit Cancun do not even get off the island. This restaurant located in the center of Mercado 28 is worth the adventure. Be prepared when you venture into the Plaza of the Mercado. You will be attacked but menu wielding staff attempting to lure you into their Cantina. It can be a disquieting experience. My rule of thumb is follow the locals. Take a look at who is eating where. The busiest is usually the best. You definitely will not find too many gringos here. The food is authentic, the service friendly and attentive and a great value. We opted for the Mole Pablano and Sauteed Fresh Fish mojo del ajo (with garlic). The Guacamole of delicious, the beers cold and the food delicious.

“THE BEST RESTAURANT IN MERCADO 28”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

After frequenting this fonda ( restaurant ) in Mercado 28 throughout the years of visiting Cancun I thought it was time a write a review, First of all I have start by saying that off of all the restaurants inside Mercado 28 they are truly the best. Year after year their food is really authentic, fresh ,always tasty but most of all it by far inexpensive. Family of three ordering 3 main dishes with soups and chips, a bucket of beer ( 6 ) , and soda will average less than 30 US dollars. On this last visit we selected this restaurant 4 times over the course of our 10 day vacation. But I feel the manin reason for posting this review it is the genuine service provided by the staff. Year after year of eating there the staff remembers you and makes it a point of going out of their way to please you and let's you know that they appreciate your loyalty to their establishment.
