I think most people that eat tacos in Mexico order the popular tacos al pasto(pork). We do not eat pork; therefore, we only have the option of ordering beef tacos. Unfortunately, the tacos we have eaten throughout our road trip in Baja Caifornia Peninsula, have...More

If you want lots of food at a very low price, check out the Rancho Viejo. I've eaten their at least once for the last 7 to 8 years and always find it to be a fun experience. I particularly like their grilled pork which...More

Food was aight. Service was slow. They have one guy making tacos, which are quick, but for anything off the menu, this seems to come from a different kitchen. No explanations or apologies made, however. If you want awesome tacos, go to any of the...More

Homemade delicious food! Good prices, great location on the Malecon. Chorizo tacos are a must, really great!

The food's great and "real." No ridiculous pandering to the Tex-Mex crowd. They specialize in grilled meats, with all the trimmings. Open 24 hours a day, the space looks as if the owners bought one property, then another, then another as they expanded. No frills:...More
