“Fabulous Flavor at an Amazing Price”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

We had take out chicken from this place twice during our visit to Puerto Morelos. It was such a delicious and filling meal I can't believe a half chicken with sides was only 45 pesos. It comes with rice and beans (the beans are more like a sauce than I'm accustom to) cabbage, tacos and a hot sauce. During the time we were there we only saw a choice of chicken or ribs so the menu might change from time to time. It is only open during lunch until the food runs out, which is why one person had trouble finding it.

“A Diamond in the Rough”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

My husband and I love, love, love this restaurant. We kind of stumbled across it last year when we were honeymooning at the Secrets Silversands and wandered into Puerto Morelos, and the flavor of the meats and chickens simply left our mouths watering. The quality of the food is outstanding, and it is truly an authentic gem. When they asked us what we wanted to drink, my husband asked for a beer...well, it was clear that they did not stock beer (we didn't know that at the time), and they literally ran somewhere to grab him a Sol. It was pretty incredible. We liked it so much, we remembered to go back this year, and they definitely did not disappoint. Same quality of food, great price, and my mouth is still currently watering for more! Hopefully next year!

“Wonderful Hole in the Wall Barbecued Chicken & Ribs”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

A wonderful little actual hole in the wall that serves in an open area barbecue chicken and ribs
Its spartan , has two friendly woman who speak only Spanish cooking , cutting chicken and serving
Point to the menu as to what you want - 1/4 , 1/2, 3/4 chicken etc
Its clearly labelled
One side of the menu ( slightly lower priced is take out)
Very nice and highly recommended - at least for the chicken
I went back twice and the chicken was both consistent and nice and juicy
I guess there is a bit of charcoal smoke in the air - yet that is the price to be paid for authentic

Is it still open? We have been up and down the street several times. Looking across from the Habanero Cafe.
