Description: A lot of places claim to be for the "locals" but this place actually is where they eat. The name means "crazy potato" in English and that is their speciality. Huge baked potato's filled with buttter, sour cream, cheese and then a variety of meats. Their tacos al pastor and pico de gallo are the best I've ever tasted. Nothing on the menu is more than $50 peso's or about $4usd. Very popular spot with the locals and tourist's that want to experience authentic Mexican food..

Lapapa Loca is an amazing place for real authentic Mexican tacos and an extraordinary whirl on the baked potatoes! It’s a must try while visiting in Zihuatanejo! The amount of food given, the price occurred and the service was unbelievable! Delicious so say the very least!

If you're in town and you don't eat here you wasted your trip. I am not exaggerating. Easily the best thing I've eating in recent memory. 10 tacos, one papa loca (feeds two), three beers and two baskets of chips for $14. We were the only tourists in the house and the smartest tourists in town!

Delicious! We each had one of the potatoes. And all were very tasty. Inexpensive beer and soda served in the bottle. A great little gem. Casual and fun. Great for families (even picky eaters)!
