There were lots of ribs, and they were good. The price for two rib dinners were extremely inexpensive.

We had dinner at Fat Fish. It is simple and cheap. It is a basic restaurant and they close early. It is always very busy.

This is our traditional dinner spot the first day we fly into Mazatlan. Love the ribs and steak, love the pit master and love the music. Always great.

Was told by the locals to try this place, they said 2 full rib dinners for 220 pesos which is less than $16 for 2 people to enjoy ribs that fall off the bone. The restaurant is not pretty but it is always full.

Went with a local who recommended Fat Fish. It's one of those places you could walk by without a second look, except for the aroma of the ribs being cooked out front. Indoor and outdoor seating. Unpretentious. Meals are 2 for 1 any time - 220 pesos, about $15CDN. The rib dinner is 1 1/2 racks, coleslaw and baked potato.... More

The ribs are great and the chicken is also. Very inexpensive. Service is varied. Drinks are bad. Nice to get a salad before dinner and it's safe!

Ditto what everyone is saying. Great ribs..lots of food.. very reasonable. Beware... the map is misleading. It's on the main strip.. not near the marina.
