This is one of our favourite restaurants in Cabo, excellent food at such reasonable prices. Service is so friendly it makes you feel like family rather than customers, we usually have Umberto serve us, but all staff our wonderful, food arrives fast but you are never rushed. They have amazing chicken which is cooked on rotisserie, and their dry rubbed... More

First the not so great part ... right as we were ordering they ran out of their rotisserie chicken so we wound up having ours grilled and had to wait a really long time (45-60 min) to get our food. BUT when it can it was great (though likely not as good as the rotisserie would have been) and they're... More

Their chicken and ribs combo are great at a great price (around 6-7 USD). Great Chili Relleno with their home made sauce. Drinks are also at a great price.

I ate most breakfast meals there, and the young men and women are so friendly and helpful with explaining what is on the menu. It is very reasonable for good food at a reasonable price. $3-4 dollars will get you eggs, and meat or an omelet. I had a very large piece of fish and wine for an evening meal,... More

We always eat at this local place at least once while in Cabo. It's a local place with great roasted chicken. Low cost with good service.

We had the half roasted chicken and chile relleno. Food came out within five minutes. Good food. Had a beer and water with this. Total bill for this was $11 which included the tip. Would come back again. A lot of locals come here.

Ate here with a large group of friends. Our waiter busted his butt keeping our drinks filled. The food was great (chicken fajitas, shrimp, roasted chicken all very good) but the most impressive thing about this place are their prices. With a couple drinks our tabs were still less than $10 a piece, only wish we had discovered it earlier... More

We'd already eaten lunch but we knew we wanted some chicken and ribs so we went to El Pollo de Oro, sat at a table, ordered a beer (Pacifico) and a full order of chicken and of ribs to go. Rather than the standard macaroni salad, we asked for the mixed (lettuce) salad and it was provided at no additional... More
