We ar staying across the street from the split coconut we have been there a couple of times. Have not had the ribs but they look had bought a couple of Huachinangas that morning as the fresh catch was coming in. For just a couple of dollars they grilled the cleaned fish and served it with some small potatoes and... More

Tried the split coconut for the highly recommended ribs, seems everyone thinks they are the best. They maybe the best in town, but defiantly not the best I have eaten. Do like the beach location, the live music, and the large amount of people that seem to frequent the bar. We all tried the ribs, not impressed, they are tender,... More

While most people come to Brad's for the live music, the food is actually really good and good value. We had the ribs twice this trip and they are excellent. Ask for extra bbq sauce. We really like going early to catch the sunset. This is a great spot right on the beach. I will say the last time we... More

Great ribs. Didn't get a chance to try the arrachera. Band music great. Another band tonight, so seems to have lots of live music. Gringos seem to flock to this place. Very reasonable for the food and drinks. Wait staff, Anna, fabulous. She has a great memory and looks after multiple orders and keeps everyone happy. Great place. Try it... More

Six of us went for dinner. Best arrachera I've ever had. Others had ribs (excellent) and chicken. There was a choice of two or three sides including fries, potato salad, coleslaw and beans. Service was prompt and friendly. Everyone received their meals at the same time. Great table on the beach with the sun setting, cold drinks and good atmosphere.... More

The ribs here were one of the best meals we had on recent trip to Southern Mexico while sitting outside at tables on the sand. Good quantity of meat with a variety of roasted vegetables cooked to perfection. There is often live music in the evenings.

Food is as I've always remembered it, big portions, full flavours, and affordable. Great atmosphere. I almost always get the arrachara as it is so good. Burritos are one of the best bargains on the menu though. Always a unique blend of veggies come as a side with the dishes that come with a veg side too.

We went when they had battle of the guitars. The guitar players were amazing. The food was very good and reasonably priced. It reminded me of an old fashioned bbq with the family back home! Brad is very welcoming and the staff is very friendly. You will enjoy yourself here!!

We recently visited the Split Coconut to have dinner and enjoy some live music . It was very busy so we had to find our own chairs from a pile of broken ones in the back. No one came to see what we would like so we went to the bar and ordered ourselves. We were told that there was... More
