“DELICIOUS AND FRESH MADE-TO-ORDER TACOS!!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

I am so happy I stopped one day on my way to get my laundry (next door)...and found out that luckily for me, only a block away from where I live are some of the BEST TACOS ever! Not only are they DELICIOUS...but they are fresh and made-to-order, very affordable AND the staff is delightful and super friendly tpp--you feel like you're sitting in your back patio with friends. I LOVE IT. And being a vegetarian, it's hard to find things to eat here in Mexico...especially tacos....but they have vegetarian taco options on the menu as well! I am ecstatic about this! I have tried 2 of the 3 already and they are out of this world YUMMY!!! Tacos come with all the fixings and salsas on the side and include a side of fresh coleslaw. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!

“Great Tacos”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We tried this little taco stand two times during our visit and each time it was wonderful. The food is more mayan, super tasty, especially the pulled pork tacos. This stand is about a 1/2 block off fifth on 38th, definitely worth the walk there. No alcohol, but you can get beer or wine at the little store next door and bring over. Oh there is also vegetarian options which worked well for some in our group. Will be back!

“Love good tacos at the beach!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoyed Playa del Carmen as you have the best options to have fun, but specially great food options like this small but delicious "Mexican antojitos" restaurant. I couldn't have enough of their cochinita, you have to try it if you want to taste Mexican flavor.
