We found this little nugget on Trip Advisor under the cheap eats section. This is a little traditional Mexican restaurant that the locals eat in. We got a taxi there as it is tucked away in a residential area. We had some of the sharing bowls, the famous tortilla soup, and baked potatoes, we also had a couple of home... More

We just left this quaint little restaurant. We are a family of five with three heavy eating teens. We had 18 tacos, (6 beef, 9 Chicken, 3 portabello), 4 bowls of tortilla soup, 5 bottles of local juices. 5 bottles of water, 2 servings of key lime pie, and two helpings of complementary tortillas, our bill came just over $56....

My daughter and I were hers pressed to find some good food one day at lunch time. We remembered someone at our hotel going here and gave it rave reviews. We found it easily and had the most delicious lunch yet! We shared tortilla soup which was simple in ingredients and very clean. We both got 2 tacos and were... More

Tortilla soup, skirt steak with potatoes, tacos all were excellent. A little place tucked away on a side street, not easy to find. Prices are good.

Unfortunately my wife and I only visited Las Cazuelas twice. I wish we visited earlier during our time in SJDC. The Tortilla soup was amazing as well as the key lime pie. Very neat and tidy facility. Don explained the menu and this made our decision easier. Don and his wife were very friendly and we enjoyed every moment spent... More

Our first visit to Cazuelas was three years ago and this time was every bit as good as the first time. We took a cab ride from the Grand Mayan. Still no beer or wine (license pending) and you cannot BYOB. The food is absolutely wonderful and we were lucky enough to have both Don and his wife as our... More

When I searched for delicious mexican food in San Jose Del Cabo this is where TripAdvisor led me. I was not disappointed! The owners are so friendly and they speak English. The food was incredible. If I lived here, I would be a regular customer.

If you are looking for something off the beaten path and away from the resorts and tourist restaurants, give this place a try. Service is friendly and you don't have to speak Spanish. The food is fresh and tastes like something homemade. The habanero salsa will get you warmed up for a great meal. The tacos are simple but flavorful.... More

We found this gem years ago, due to family that stays in San Jose a few months a year. We come back every time we are in town.

Wow, the food was amazing. Quite an authentic experience. The clay pots were delicious! The hosts were so sweet and informative. Not a fancy restaurant, but you get so much more than what a 'fancy restaurant' can offer. You just have to come and see for yourself =)

Description
The best charcoal grilled american steak cut, fresh local chicken and vegetable dishes, slow cooked in a traditional cazuela (clay pot) for additional, unique flavor... Simply delicious! El Don invites you to kill your capital sins... Bite by bite!! Where about: Coming from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo on the Transpeninsular Highway, you pass Walmart (on your right hand side), at 100 meter is a traffic light wait for the left arrow, cross the hiaghway (there is a "Gift Shop" right on the corner), we are on the same block as the Oxxo store but on the other corner.
