We had the smoked Marlin taco. Great tasting and fantastic service. A short walk across the street from the airport. Air conditioning.

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.

Always tasty. I've been coming here for years, craving the sea bass burrito after a mountain bike ride. My husband usually gets the marlin, and the quality of the food never disappoints. Obviously you don't go for the ambience, but the service is always delivered with a smile as well.

Just enjoyed the shrimp 'taco' (it's really more of a burrito) yesterday before catching our flight. Just across the road from the airport, there is a foot traffic overpass. Cross that and voila! If you want a beer with your meal, you'll have to zip two doors down to the nice lady who has a corner store and bring it... More

This place has the best food for very little money. You have to eat here. I always have the marlin and shrimp tacos (they look like a burrito and are extremely large). If you leave here hungry or dissatisfied I would be amazed! It is right across the street from the airport. Just ask anyone in the airport and they... More
