“Yummy”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

So glad we were with a friend who recommended this place or we may not have stopped here. From the outside it looks like a little orange shack, but sometimes those unassuming little spots turn out to be the best. That was the case here. The carne asada tacos were heaven. You can also get Mexican Coke in the bottle here which I ended up liking better than the American version. If you're not looking for atmosphere, but just great, inexpensive food, try this place!

“Great little taco spot!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We ate here while staying next door at the Catamaran resort. Good, tasty food and quick service. We tried to catch an early breakfast on Saturday before leaving, but they were not open at 8:30, so we had to go elsewhere.

“Excellent and cheap”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Amazing food, super cheap. There was a longer wait to place the order and receive the food, but that's just because of how popular it is and we went on a weekend.

“Great hole in the wall”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Great Mexican food.
Cheap prices.
Beach bum atmosphere.
The carne Asada and Al Pastor tacos (2 of each) were great and had rice and beans on the side for each along with 1 water and a large horchata was only 17$. Came out in about 10minutes. Tasty cheap and hits the spot.

“Mmmm delicious.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

If you're vegetarian, play with the menu a little, they're very willing to make substitutions. Don't miss the churros!
