El Fogon is the most authentic and delicious Mexican food in the areas. The food is great, the service is outstanding, and the drinks are glorious. Don't skip it! You might have to wait, but it is well worth it.

If you want traditional Mexican food this is the go to place in Playa Del Carmen. El Fogon is possibly the best authentic Mexican grill restaurant in Playa Del Carmen. It's casual dining so don't expect a posh silver service; just expect great food reasonably...More
