I was really disappointed considering all the good review. But I can understand where they came from. El Asadero is extremely tourist friendly and will give you a good vibe when you walk in. It definitely caters to Americans more than most places in town....More

This place was recommended to us during our visit to Tulum. We love steak so went along. My steak was ok, but my wife said her burrito was the best she’s ever had! In which case I guess this place is a must visit!

Obviously this place is very popular as the place was packed but our waitors were still very nice. Those chorizo tacos though. Some of the best I have ever had and very VERY affordable.
