“Great tacos de camaron”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Very tasty food, a fair amount of food in each dish, and the fruit waters are gigantic.
Will come back for another taco de camaron.

“A local price with great food”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

I love aguas frescas, and they serve up some really good ones that are also huge for the price you pay. Food is good and reasonably priced.

“Great local flavor; inexpensive”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Living in Playa, we've hit many of the 'off the tourist map' places. El Jurado is one of our favorites. The enchiladas verdes here beat any we've ever had... the huaraches are delicious too... and if you think 'Taco Bell' when you hear the word Gordita, think again. At 19 pesos (~$1.50 US), you can't beat 'em! They also have a tamarind sauce and a garlic sauce- they make both there- in squeeze bottles. A little of each on a totopo and you will be amazed.

“El Jurado @ Playa del Carmen Sept 2013”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

On our frequent trips to this area we always visit this restaurant..this visit we once again had the Enchiladas-Verde. So good. Staff are friendly with some english understand, but they also have english and spanish menus so no problem if unable to speak the language. The lemonade is freshly made and very refreshing. A must if in the area and want some very authentic local food. Great prices...our meal was $20 including a tip. Ambience is not the best but if you want 'fancy smamcy' then go to a 5th Avenue 'americanized' restaurant and pay more. Your choice.

“Different but worth a try”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We ate 2 Huaraches here at 47 pesos a piece. We had Chicken Tinga and Chorizo and Potatoes.
The Chicken Tinga was very tasty, the topping was spread very uneven though across the base.
The Chorizo wasn't like we expected it as it doesn't come in slices and is served crumbled up in tiny little pieces so you don't get the same flavour at all.
We got the 2 salsas served on the side and the red one was the more interesting of the 2.
It made a light dinner and we would go back again.

They have English menus and the staff were polite and helpful.
