We stopped in for dinner after walking around Mercados 23 and 28, after reading how incredible the tacos were. We ordered margaritas and beer, and decided on the food. We each ordered something a little different, including dessert, but the clear winner of the night...was the Coapenito tacos. The meat was seasoned perfectly, the chicharron a nice addition, and the red sauce dribbled on top rounded it all out. Don't forget to add the spicy onions! We plan to go back again this trip, as the prices were very reasonable and the food fantastic.More

I‘m sorry to say but the food was awful. The beef in the tortas was bland and tough and the tortas itself was not cross. The vegan taco as well was not good. We now need to go to another restaurant…

The food here was amazing. The flavors of their tacos were the best I had in my time in Mexico. Our waiter Pedro was wonderful, funny and extremely helpful. The man may be responsible for my tequila addiction. lol! Seriously, if you are in Cancún,...do yourself a favor and stop in. You will not regret it.More

Amazing food, service, and Margaritas!! Thank you to Hugo for your awesome service. He is clearly the best waiter in Cancun. We arrived slightly before opening after a couple hours shopping at Mercado 23 and they let us in and served us. We weren’t sure...what to order so Hugo made it easy with awesome recommendations. Such a welcome change of pace from the strip or your hotel. Thanks again!! Hugo Rocks!!More
