Ranked #1 of 172 Restaurants in Jaco
Price range: US$2 - US$10
Description: It’s fresh, colorful and full of bright flavors – yes, we are talking about authentic Mexican food! We take very special care to source authentic and fresh ingredients to ensure we present you with a wholesome Mexican experience. The richness of Mexican cuisine varies greatly by region but there are distinctive factors that savvy eaters can immediately place a finger on that distinguishes our menu from your regular Tex-Mex joints. For those looking to surrender themselves to the COMPLETE Mexican experience, we’re bringing out our Trompo too! Who doesn’t love some well marinated pineapple and pork, slow cooked on a vertical rotating spit that is exploding with the traditional flavours of Mexico. We promise just a slice of this in your taco and you’ll be coming back for more! We’ve got it all air conditioned so you can enjoy in style and comfort and that’s not even the best part. We’ve got TV screens so you don’t miss a match while smashing back some of the best Mexico has to offer!

We were welcomed with open arms!! I speak no Spanish and was able to communicate very well and order everything I wanted! I personally got the chicken fajitas and a pina colada. But we also shared a platter of different types of tacos!! Amazing food and great atmosphere!!! Will definitely be back!

Two thumbs up! Ate a chicken burrito. My goodness, I'm from Vegas/SO Cal area where we have thousands of taco joints, this burrito had SO MUCH flavor. Literally juices dripping. Sauteed onions and peppers ,cheese. It's like fajitas wrapped in the most heavenly tortilla, which They toast/grill the outside...Like I said, if you're afraid of flavor...go somewhere else. Lol.. Also. Service was great. Beyond friendly staff. Karol was what put the cherry on top. Genuine hospitality. We went twice in one day, she was still there and remembered us and our order. We felt at home.
