We stayed a block away at the Buenaventura and this was on my radar from almost the minute we booked. It did not disappoint! We ordered the tacos el pastor of course (apparently they offer other items as well! LOL). As good or better than...More

I'm not an al pastor person. But these tacos are something else. 9 tacos + 2 drinks = 170 pesos. Grab a seat outside if it's busy and a waiter will come take your order. Super friendly staff. Self serve salsa by the taco stand....More

True street food. Tasty el pastor, and neat trick of catching the pineapple behind his back. There is street seating, of a fashion, and inside (hole in the wall style) seating. Very friendly and attentive service.

We tried several places all very good but this one beats them. Fluffy fresh tortillas great price and great service! We recommend to everyone going to Puerto Vallarta. It is also well located close to Malecon.

A bustling hive of great things! The tacos al pastor are great, and not easy to find at home. This is real food, not tourist food, and quite inexpensive. I can also highly recommend the papas rellenos (stuffed potatoes) - baked potato with melted cheese,...More

This is the good late night Al Pastor place. It’s a bit outside the Zona... but well worth the short walk. Don’t forget to try the home made salsas!

We loved the environment, the tacos and the 4 different sauces. It is a small place but full of people and delicious tacos.

I believe it opens around 4-5pm and closes around 12-1am. There are tables indoors and plastic chairs outside.
