The food was great, the service was great, fresh guacamole made right at your table! When we were leaving the guacamole guy ran out to grab us a taxi. Great Staff. Must go!

This will sound crazy, but their CHIPS were so good! Authentic and light and crispy (not oily) and their guacamole was handmade in front of us - as spicy as we like! We ordered several items as well as a margarita (which is a HUGE "jumbo" style margarita anywhere else.) The shrimp in the fajitas was great - even though I was stuffed I kept picking at them. Best part was that the meal was so well priced. For all that we ate and drank as a part of 5 we ended up less than $40 USD total with tip.

The margaritas here are the best--and biggest--in PV. I love the watermelon, with the coconut a close second. The food is simply delicious, but share because the plates are enough to feed an army. Great place to dine every year.

Pipi's had been recommended to us when I asked about a place to go for good authentic Mexican food. What the locals would eat. Well, this was not the place for it. Upon arriving at the restaurant, there were flags strewn across the street which made it feel very festive. There was quite a line of people waiting to get in. We thought, okay, this is a good sign. Although, there was a waiting line we managed to get right in. We were a group of 4. The décor of the restaurant was fun, festive, and it was loud but not overly so. The staff seemed a bit rushed, although it seemed that they weren't short on help for the amount of seated tables. The best thing of our entire experience was the guacamole. They make it table side and the preparer was very fast at it. Made it a fun experience. By having it made tableside, flavors don't get a chance to meld as they should but we still enjoyed it. Once looking at the menu, it was difficult to decide on a dish. It was apparent that this was not going to be authentic Mexican food but food geared to the tourist crowd. Once the food arrived, clinched that this was not going to be enjoyable. The sauce on the dished obviously had not been something that gets a chance to develop flavors. It's more like a sauce that comes right out of a can, very light in coloring. Almost a slightly modified tomato sauce. There was no spice to it and just not flavorful at all. I did notice that the margaritas were enormous. This restaurant is definitely for the family of tourists that are not looking for 'authentic' Mexican food.

We always make this a top choice when in PV. Went straight here after arriving Saturday night. Lots of good energy. Service is SO FAST. Huge margaritas arrived immediately when ordered. This trip was for our 25th anniversary. The mariachi band played 'You're too good to be true' for us. PV Tradition. Great to observe the other groups enjoying the experience.
