Service was great, food was amazing! We got the shrimp, shrimp and marlin and shrimp and crab burritos to go, ate them while waiting to board our plane. It was amazing and fresh and probably the best burrito I've had in a long time! Super close to the airport, 5 minute walk, so it is very convenient to stop by... More

A little secret….Airline employees fly in and run across the road to grab a bag of these for their crews going to the states !! Its that good ! Enjoy….the secret's outta... More

We had some time to kill before our flight so our family, who happen to be locals, suggested we swing by for lunch. I have been to Vallarta 20+ times and I'm not sure how I missed this delicious spot. It's by far one of the best places I've eaten in the city. Everything is very fresh and it's all... More

So glad we learned of this place via the TA community - a great spot to grab a bite after a flight into Puerto Vallarta. Upon exiting PVR, we walked to the left and wheeled our bags across the pedestrian overpass to the other side of the highway to check this place out. The first thing we noticed upon arrival... More

This guy started out selling out of his car. I used to work ata hotel and we would go from hotel to hotel to sell his food. Hands down the best marlin and shrimp burritos. In 6 yrs living in PV I never had anything like it.

We stopped here first after landing in PV based on all the TA reviews we had read. My husband got the shrimp and crab burrito and I had the shrimp and smoked marlin burrito. His was excellent, mine got to be too much after about 1/2. The smoked marlin has a very distinct taste.
