Next to the Catholic Church in the Hotel Zone there's a place called Carnitas Michoacan. Try it. We like it.

Are you looking at a particular resort or the area itself?

Casa Tequila is right across the street from Dreams Sands and is very good, also across the street and down a bit towards hooters is a mexican/seafood place called Calypso's. Really good and a short walk from your resort. 2 for 1 margaritas in the afternoon. They open at noon.

Casa De Los Abeulos! It was recommended to us as a place that local eat. Reminded me of a US fancy Diner. Food was amazing and reasonably priced. There is more than one location

I would take the bus to the center and explore a bit. That is where you will find the small authentic places, not the Hotel Zone. Doubt many locals ever eat in the Hotel Zone.
