Get the Al Pastor tacos, beware of the habanero sauce (delicious, but very hot!) and enjoy! Delicious food at an incredible low price. Every time I went somewhere else I kept thinking about these tacos. A real diamond in the rough.

Offers tacos and tortas. The food and drinks are very cheap and generally good. Service is also quite fast. Located on the main street and popular amongst locals and tourists alike. The ambiance is what it is.

This is one of the best places in Tulum for proper, simple, local food. It may be simple, but it really is fantastic. A must for a real foodie.

The food is extremely cheap. But that's what you get as well: atmosphere is horrible, food is very basic, drinks are very basic.

Al Pastor are the tacos made with the meat being cut off the rotisserie. Best thing on the menu. Empanadas and panuchos are good too. A note about sauce: It is very entertaining to watch people (mostly men) load up on sauce, and the try to hold their head together as it explodes. Go easy the first time. The red... More

So, first of all, note that it's not open until 5 PM. We showed up for lunch and had to come back later. Second, no one is speaking English to you at this place. This is a no frills, just come in and eat until you're stuffed and go kind of place. The waiters are not the friendliest on earth,... More

Awesome food. Very inexpensive $7/taco (pesos). Definitely go here you will not be disappointed. There is usually a line up to get in so that's a good sign.
