Fat Fish has the best ribs and fish. We love going there, all the staff is very friendly and you smell the ribs cooked on the open fire. Very tender they just fall off the bones.

Unbelievable good food here. Yes it is small, yes it is crowded, yes you may be waiting, yes it is smokey inside, but it is all worth it! Try the smoked marlin stuffed peppers. All the offerings are fresh and delicious.

Fat Fish is great for cheap ribs. The service was fast, though we were 1 of 2 tables there. These are not award winning ribs, but for the price you can't beat it. I will definitely visit again the next time I'm in Mazatlan.
