You get the feeling when you sit down that this restaurant is a family affair. The waiters appear to be a father and son. The Chicken soup is like mom made (if she was a great cook) the avocado added to it gives a creamy texture. The space is tight which encourages people to interact. We had a very nice... More

We have yet to visit Huatulco without having a bowl or two of chicken soup and a jug of jamaica juice at this wonderful family run restaurant. Still the best ever!!

Can't say enough about this little corner spot in Huatulco. The food is always fresh, the people are super friendly, and no matter what you order off the menu..... you will enjoy. Tacos, tostada, and enchiladas mole are wonderful..... but don't miss out until you have tried their Chicken soup.... Awesome.

Love everything about this place. It is true authentic Mexican food, the owner is friendly, the prices are great. We have now eaten here a handful of times and have never been unhappy or left hungry ... It is not a glamorous spot but it is a great experience!

This is a little spot which consistently serves the best chicken soup in Huatulco. We pick it up and take it home, to a friend's house or we eat there! Always superior! The owners are great and take pride in their food and their customer service! It is not fancy but has great appeal. Sit inside or on a bar... More

We were there tonight 23/04/2016 and it was great. Ordered the ribs and a dish with black beans, cheese and chicken stuffed in corn tortillas. Everything was awesome. Two beers and three gringos left 165.00 peso + tip lighter very very inexpensive. Good service and yummy home made Mexican food.

The place is small and simple but very nice and clean. If you're out for a truly Mexican food experience, this is it! You cannot leave town if you haven't tried Los Gallos' caldo tlalpeño. It's delicious!

The famous chicken soup is very good! The service is great. Go ahead and skip the mescal...not very good, but the beers are cold. BIG PROBLEM...the English and Spanish menu have different prices. Not a huge difference. For the soup on the English menu $60 pecos, on the Spanish menu $55 pecos. Not a lot of money, but I do... More
