Nice Place With a Pretty Back Deck. Walked In Nobody Welcomes You Except The Cook Said Hi To Us While He tried To Give Us Somebodys Elses Order! Sat at a inside table.... Got Up grabed the menu from the bar bartender took my order 15 min later came out are chickenless Nachos lots of chesse and frijoles very little chicken. 15 min later are 5 tacos came out served by the server this time. Carne Asada And Pork Belly were Good the beer battered fish and tuna had no flavor. Got Up Payed the Check since nobody brought us one or checked backed on us. $30 for 5 tacos and chickenless nachos 2 sodas and a water just in case you wan to know the prices. probly the cheapest spot on culebra unless you go to a Panaderia. I you want good service sit in th back deck it seems like they focus more that way. And dont ask for a side of Rice And Frijoles as they do have it but dont sell sides of it. what kind of taqueria doesnt sell sides of Arroz y Frijoles. No Bueno! But ill be back everybody deserves otra oportunidad. closed on mon and tues, open wed thru sun 12-8pm

A busy little place with delicious food! The place was hopping when we visited so we were unable to sit on the beautiful patio, but we enjoyed sitting inside and chatting with other customers as well. The fresh chips and salsa were amazing as well as the burritos we had for dinner. I could have eaten there both of our nights on the island!

Food is tasty, pretty good for the price, always out of guacamole (how can u be out of guacamole at a taco place?), new bartender/server had terrible attitude and was rude. The first time we were there they were in the weeds with eleven customers there! Hard to find good food in Culebra. Zacos was underwhelming, but I wpuld have rated it a little higher had the staff been more friendly. We seemed to be bothering them by ordering food and drinks?

This place is not open late so get there before 8pm if youre looking to get service. They've got great margaritas, quesadillas, and tacos of course!
The bartender service was a bit odd, but hey its island life at island pace. While ordering our food at the bar, the bartender turned away and made someone elses drinks mid order. It was kind of weird but not a problem. We really enjoyed our time there.

Went with our family for lunch spent $40 with no cocktails/appetizers etc. and left hungry. Food was ok but like most places they were on "island time" so it took quite a while to make 3 plates of nachos. The kids were starved when it came and the order was wrong. We were told that they could choose to eat it that way or the kitchen could remake it but that would take about 15 minutes. Really? For nachos? My husbands plates truly contained 8 chips.. server was really pleasant but just not a place where you can get full for your money so it didn't really work for us with 2 very hungry kids who had been playing all day at the beach.
