We found this gem after 2 attempts and let me tell you or was way worth the walk. Yes. We walked from downtown while staying at suites Bahia. It is tricky. But go down main strip to 11 th ave. which is right across from margarita vile. Or the street right after mega mart. It is on 65 ave on the corner of 19. Don't be afraid to ask around. This is not a tourist area but don't let that stop you. Billy and his food is amazing crazy. Steak and pork with chicken from the grill and tortillas limes and 2 comes for 155 pesos. And we had extra and bought another 50 précis of steak to bring home. This is soooo worth your travel. You won't be sorry.

This is not a place for those who can't stand watching their food come out of an ice chest and on to the fire. It's not for those who need climate controlled dining and can't stand a fly or smoke in their eyes. It's not for vegetarians or those who like fancy silverware. But if you want the best grilled meat around hot off the grill at great prices come here. Truly a local experience. We stumbled upon it by missing a turn leaving the airport. You wont walk here from the cruise ship unless your used to power walks. We have been here two days and eaten here twice. The menu is simple. Grilled pork, chicken, sausage or ribs. Sides are grilled onion, cole slaw, bean juice, rice and salsa picosa. A large stack of tortillas is with every order. Expect to pay $5-6 usd per head including beverages (no alcohol served here)

No trip to Cozumel would be complete without a stop by El Billy's barbeque. You'll know when your almost there as you'll see and smell the wonderful smoke from their barbeque from over a block away. They offer pork, ribs and chicken. Our favorite is the pork. Don't forget to get one of their whole barbequed onions to round out the experience. Their homemade salsa is the best salsa we've had since we've been here. We normally just get ours to go although there are tables if you want to stay and eat in. The value is un-matchable, you can feed a family of 4 for about $8 US.

We love Billy and his BBQ! We were on our way to visit the ruins, keeping an eye out for a snack when we spied a long line of locals at a very smokey BBQ joint. We told them we wanted a snack and to give us $5 worth. Billy invited us to dine in and as we were eating the best BBQ chicken ever, Billy kept bring us food. Needless to say our snack turned in a meal of epic proportions. Billy is obviously passionate about his food and loves to talk about his long standing family recipes. We kept coming back and I miss Billy's enthusiasm and of course his fab food already!
