Affordable and great-tasting corn-tortilla tacos (pastor, chuleta (pork chop), chorizo were my favorites) plus their "pique gringas" - large flour tortilla tacos with melted cheese and meat. Excellent guac. The frijoles are not just beans - they're more of a soup-stew with beans, cheese and meat. Good place to come after a night dive!

One we found this place for dinner, we just kept going back. The food was excellent and inexpensive. Our regular waiter was awesome...his English was better than our Spanish and he was very attentive. We tried tacos, gringo pique, fajitas (soooo good!) and the guac...all of which were exceptional. This small place doesn't open until 7PM but its a happening... More

Walk away from town and enjoy VERY inexpensive tacos and such. Limited English by the servers but your needs are met. With the peso exchange being 20:1, a meal of variety can certainly be had. FYI...across the street is a major grocery store. Excellent local food for those who want to get away from the tourist restaurants in town. The... More

This place had the best tacos that we had in Cozumel. The menu is very small. But, that doesn't matter you just want the tacos! They're very cheap, and taste wonderful. The food comes out quick. The kitchen is open so you can watch them cook. However that makes it very hot inside. They have a nice covered patio outside... More

A cabbie recommended this place for authentic tacos and sides. We made the request for some interesting head tacos. You can get them here. The menu is up on the wall, in Spanish. Servers speak little to no English. We ordered tripe, surtido (mixed, anything in the cow), and sesos dorados (golden brains). One taco was better than the next... More

This is the best Al pastor in town. We make several trips every time we are here. Wish they were open during the day.

Wanted some local tacos while visiting Cozumel with friends and El Pique was recommended. Wow what a great place in the heart of the real Cozumel not the tourist area. There were four of us and we ate tacos and beans and Pique till we couldn't eat anymore plus two or three beers each and our bill was $35 usd.... More

We arrived for our week long stay in Cozumel late...We asked the locals a good place to eat and they told us El Pique...Our family of 9 went back three times on our week stay. It was delicious and the waiters were very friendly. We ordered many things off the menus each time all were wonderful!

A great taqueria for travelers who are hoping to get a more authentic taste of Cozumel! We got 6 tacos (the gringas- pastor tacos with cheese), 2 beers, and 2 bowls of beans all for $10. Everything tasted fantastic and the price could not be beat! Add on top of all that- the staff were all super friendly and very... More

Starving when we arrived, we found a table even though the placed was very busy. Menu choices are painted on the wall - a nearby table of women helped to explain with our limited Spanish skills! Chicken (pollo) was great, so was bistec (steak) - get with cheese. Chorizo also great. Can't miss here. So cheap and good! Service is... More
