I went once because they had vege options. Got the special nachos with extra guac and some chunky fries. It was amazing, I went back every day for a month, same meal, everyday. I miss those nachos.

Came here a few times on my 2 week visit and have to say that the food here was excellent. A great atmosphere inside and friendly staff accompanied by a fantastic menu which incorporates traditional food with an American twist. The best burritos in mancora.

This place made me actually enjoy mexican food years ago. Now, every time I’m in town I HAVE to stop by for a burrito!

We had the beef skewers & beef medallions! Both cooked to perfection with fantastic flavour. We liked it so much we went back a second night! Highly recommend a meal here when in Mancora. Staff were super friendly & attentive.

Cool atmosphere and good food. Portions were good for the price and the service was good. We did have to wait a bit for our food, but that seems to be the norm on Moncora.

We had the ribs to share, massive portions, very tasty. Staff friendly and very helpful. Not expensive, good value for money.
