Very local, on the back roads a little, just two block behind El Squid Row. 1/2 rack of ribs with 1/2 chicken is about $7 bucks. English is not spoken, however over multiple trips, we get er' done.

Other TA reviews are spot on. I got the full order of ribs....juicy and delicious. Others got the chicken and rib combo. My son said that that chicken was 100x better than Costco chicken....so those are high marks indeed. They have Corona Light (5g carbs)...More

This was the best find for us during the week we spent in Cabo San Lucas. The chicken was so juicy and moist. The flavor is truly golden. The prices were dirt cheap. Cannot believe how close to the main area this restaurant was. You'll...More

Just off the tourist area in Cabo by a few blocks, you can find this great unassuming inexpensive Mexican restaurant. Their specialty is roast chicken. My husband and I each had the ribs and chicken combo. The servings were a quarter chicken, rice, beans, delicious...More

We found this place on our last trip to Cabo and we go back every time. The roasted chickens are the specialty and for 80 pesos for a 1/2 chicken with two sides you can’t go wrong. This place is a favourite with locals who...More
