“BEST TACOS EVER”

I seriously think about these tacos weekly when I'm at home. I get chicken w/ cheese and salsa verde. Can't go wrong!

“For authentic tacos and other dishes try Taqueria El Pique”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

I was directed to Taqueria El Pique by some some ex-pats. El Pique is away from the square and the main water front drag. The clientele is local for the most part, with a smattering of gringos, Canadians and others. This little brightly-colored restaurant has several things going for it in my opinion 1) the food is authentic Mexican; 2) the food is delicious; 3) the place is unpretentious, friendly, and clean; 4) the wait staff are great; 5) the food is very reasonably priced; 6) you can enjoy your meal in the back jardine; 7) the clientle are mostly local.

You order your food off of the wall chart similar to going to a Wendy's or other fast food place in the U.S. A variety of meats and other freshly made sides can be ordered. There are plenty of salsas of various types. I prefer chicken as a meat so I have had chicken tacos, chicken fajitas, etc. Give it a try when you are tired of running the restaurant gauntlet in the touristy area of the Cozumel square and main drag along the water front. It's on Avenida 30, between Benito Juarez and Calle 2. Worth your time, for sure.

“REAL DEAL!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

Truly authentic mexican food. Best tacos in cozumel, this is not a tourist oriented restaurant thats why in my opinion makes it the best. I suggest you try tacos de chuleta with cheese, in fact try them all . Fantastic place to eat.
