We accidentally ran into the taco stands and decided to try the food. The place was packed with locals and visitors. The food was fresh, delicious and inexpensive. We went back a few times during our week long stay.

In my experience if locals eat the food, it must be good and it was. Ok you eat it on a local park bench but food is very tasty and great value. Would definitely recommend you try and we ate here on a lunch a couple of times, do try you won't be disappointed!

This is always a must stop for the best tacos you will ever eat!. I know a lot of people are afraid to eat from carts in Mexico, but we love it and have never gotten sick. Probably the cheapest and best meal you'll have in Playa. We've eaten here dozens of times! Get there early.

Too bad they were made to move. Don't be afraid of the walk, it is safe. There are usually about six or more taco stands. Most serve pork, chicken and some serve sandwiches with beef, etc. The tacos are nothing fancy, but the pork tacos are outstanding. When we have been there we are they only Americans or non Mexican.... More

A taco for 10 pesos, how can you go wrong? Local cheap eats, tasty and fast. Don't be afraid to jump in, there is often someone who speaks English who will help you if you stand there looking hungry and bewildered. They're open for breakfast (food is fresh) and late night brings a slightly different menu. Look for the churro... More
