Great tacos and grilled meats. El pastor is a must if you visit here as it is one of the best in Playa. A few locations and typically busy late at night.

The tacos were soo delicious definitely recommend the tacos with chorizo and cheese. Place is not that big so you may need to wait for a table but it’s totally worth the wait.

This restaurant was located near our hotel and was filled with local people. We ordered nachos, tacos and quesadillas, and all three dishes were very tasty. Would recommend. The menu was only in Spanish.

Go for lunch or a casual dinner. You won’t be disappointed. We had the fajitas pastor guacamole and a few beers for $17.

Sorry thought you were asking about another place. Here I had tacos I forget the Spanish word for what it was but it was first on the menu and we got a variety. We also got a burrito type thing and that was great as well.
