We were looking for a place to eat and noticed this place was full with additional people standing outside. We decided to try it, it was delicious! We had their chicken and oven-baked onions. Super place, full of locals and some tourists.

I was super excited to eat here after reading the reviews. We got the whole chicken and sides to go, and ate at home. The first thing is that they do give a great deal, I think it was about 120peso for a whole chicken, sides and tortillas. The chicken is just butterflied and cooked on an open fire, not... More

Fast food in the U.S. has nothing on this place. I walked in for a "to go" order and was out in less than a minute. Not only that, this is some of the best tasting grilled chicken you could ask for. There's nothing fancy about it. They just know how to season and grill a delicious, simple meal. It's... More

We've been in Tulum in a boutique hotel all week eating at some fine places on the beach. Today on side trip into town we came across this remarkable place. Hey it's not fine dining but if you want remarkable roasted checkin at prices that are so low I felt guilty not paying more - this is your place. El... More

The service was good. The food was not as good as the reviews led me to believe. The staff were washing the plastic cutlery and reserving it when we went ..which turned our stomach...I would pass on this one.

Our tour guide from Transfers USA, Juan Miguel, brought us here for lunch as part of our cenotes tour - what a wonderful surprise! The chicken was absolutely delicious - so simply prepared, but so tender and so flavorful. We had to stop ourselves, it was so good!

We tried 2 other places that bbq chicken and this was by far the best. Served with a traditional set of rice, salsa, and tortillas this is an amazing lunch to grab on your way back from a few hours at the beach. For only $4USD (80 pesos) you can get a half chicken plus all the sides, entirely too... More

Awesome chicken, we had with the queso mashed potatoes. They serve with corn tortillas & cabbage, hot sauce. We sat outside, but most people do take out, and they seem to do delivery we noticed. Very reasonable for $230 pesos with beverages for 2.
