We found this place by coincidence, after having a drink in a terrible place nearby.
We loved it: it's simple, humble and honest food at its best.
We had a couple of empanadas and a delicious rib eye, coming with french fries and a salad. The price we paid for this meal was like the place: very friendly !
If like us, you are tired of some of the pretentious bars and restaurants of Playa del Carmen, give it a try, you shouldn't be desappointed.

We ate here on a very raining night as it was close to where we were staying. Good choice. I got the burger just like I wanted (naked-nothing but bread cheese and meat). Husband got arracherra because they had just sold their last sausage (but turned out to be wonderful). The fries - so yummy. A few beers from next door and we were happy campers.

We had burgers here on the recommendation of a fellow traveler. It's hardly a dine–in experience but has great local ambience. Six or seven barstools and a single table make for a friendly, comfortable experience. The service was excellent, as were the burgers, probably as good as you can get in PDC. No wine or beer. Highly recommended. Oh, and be sure to ask about the dog on the roof :-)
