A good place to get cheap tacos hang out and drink cold beer. There is shopping around. There is a Saturday farmers market you can easily access.

Someone told me the tacos were good, here. We stopped in on the way out of town... Had shrimp tacos. The service was fast, which I appreciated. They have all kinds of various things to put on the tacos---delicious.

Our group had a variety of dishes for breakfast. All were very good. We had intended to return, but found ourselves in other places each day, so didn't make it back. I will definitely eat there when I return to Los Barriles next year.

Breakfast and lunch option, closes at 3 p.m. So reasonably priced, do not need a "local's night" for deals.
What would be the price range for "El Viejo"?

By US standards, cheap. By Mexico standards, moderate. My wife and I eat lunch for under $15 combined (and often under $10) including drinks.

I don't see reviews for any of Los Barriles' many restaurants or the local attractions for that matter. I live here and would be glad to provide more information about this great little town if you are interested.
