Try the mole chicken! Won't disappoint! And the takeout rotisserie chicken is succulent and a meal by itself with macaroni salad, rice and tortillas (pollo entero).

We are always looking for places where the locals go to eat. This restaurant was highly recommended by shop keeper that we meet in Cabo. It is located away from the busy tourist area. The first thing that I noticed when we got closer to the restaurant was the wonderful smells that was coming from inside. There were many locals... More

This is a spot we eat 3 to 4 times a week while we're in Cabo for the month. I usually get the 1/2 a chicken and make 5 to 6 chicken soft tacos with the extra tortillas they give you. This place is amazing!

Visited a year ago with friends. Came back again this year.....TWICE..... for dinner. Very good food. We will definatly be coming back here. We both had the Rib /Chicken combo. You get plenty of food with the order. We actually split the last meal and still had plenty. We will be back. DO NOT be afraid to try this one.... More

Went looking for this restaurant after seeing it on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. Will be returning. Fast, friendly service. Looked like they also had carry-out. Had a combo plate and everything on it was delicious. Had to leave some on the plate, could not eat it all, but made a gallant effort.

This was a place that not many tourist were there but a lot of local families were eating. Food was great, Service was good, the decor was not all of that but I was happy eating. The Chicken was very good along with the ribs. I would recommend this place

This place is probably my favorite restaurant I ate at while visiting Cabo. The food was great and the price was even better. I ended up going back multiple times. The chicken soup was my personal favorite. Five of us ordered dishes, appetizers, and drinks, and the bill came to about $50.
