The Hangman (El Ahorcado) serves up fantastic cheap eats in an authentic super casual atmosphere. Restaurant was super busy when we arrived (we got the last table) but service was friendly and efficient. Great tacos and quesadillas - their corn tortillas were probably the best I had while in Cabo. Full bar. They have a myriad of interesting and delicious... More

We love Hangman. Their tacos and quesadillas are excellent and very cheap since the dollar is strong against the peso and this is still a place where locals eat too. We love the following tacos and quesadillas; Champoines (mushroom), Huitlachoche (corn mushroom), Pollo a la Espanola (Spanish style chicken). And finish the dinner with Flan. It's the best. Do be...

We ate here our last meal on vacation, and it was easily our favorite meal. The habanero cream sauce, habanero soaked carrots and all the homemade sauce options are absolutely remarkable. We had the bean soup, six beers, a couple of diet cokes, six tacos, and the flan for dessert, all at $18 USD, before tip. Stupid cheap for the... More

the hangman is a little out of the way and off the main drag, but the food is excellent and very cheap. A somewhat limited menu, you basically get tacos, small quesadillas, or a cheese dip (optionally with meat), but it is definitely worth it. originally recommended as a place locals go, it appears to be gradually catering a bit...

Found it on tripadvisor. Really cool looking building that is open air. The food was really inexpensive but good. Great place for lunch away from the hotel style vanilla eateries

The overwhelming majority of reviews of The Hangman are positive. Reviewers refer to good and inexpensive food and drink and a friendly staff. I agree. My family and I went there for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the tacos--we all had different types of tacos, including the beef tongue. Although a bit small, because we each had three we were all...

Unfortunately, we only found this place on the second last day of our vacation. We were blown away by the full flavours and the variety available. The prices were right and the quality was outstanding. The service was excellent and the decor was so great. We will be returning our last night and will regret that we didn't get to... More

As the Concierge at our hotel suggested "This is where we (locals) go when we want tacos that are different and unique." After reading some reviews about The Hangman and the food, I was intrigued. The food was incredibly fresh and prepared so well. Our family of five felt right at home all ordering different things. The flank steak tacos... More

The Hangman offers a big menu of items and we tried several of them. Loved the various tacos we chose and they come with a variety of different salsas to top them off with. Fun atmosphere, service was great and enjoyed the music. We filled up with food and margaritas for $25. Will be back.
