We ordered a few drinks and my wife tried a taco. The waiter never asked what she wanted on it or waited for my order. He just brought her taco out with some meat on it..Very strange..That was it. We left and went elsewhere.

We were referred to Taco Rigo by a local and it did not dissapoint. The tacos were fantastic and the service was speedy!! It was a busy hotspot that was a bit hidden, but worth finding.

Service and food were good but nothing crazy. The tacos were all right. Guacamole was good and prices were okay.

We found this place on Yelp and gave it a shot. Very happy we did. The tacos were delicious and super cheap! They make the authentic small thin street style tortillas that I cannot find in Florida. Make sure to ask for their Pico de Gallo to have with the chips or top your tacos. They make it delicious!! Only... More

We went to Tacos Rigo meanwhile our trip to Cancun. We had heard many good thing of the tacos they have and they were right. Great place to try a variety of tacos and great atmosphere. Servers were always courteous and fast in bringing our order. Id really recommend for someone trying to eat something other than bistec tacos.

We go to Tacos Rigo every time we're in Cancun. The tacos are the best around with a huge selection of fillings. They've now opened one in the Hotel Zone so we don't have to go to the downtown location anymore.

We ordered tacos and beers after reading good reviews and walking about 15 minutes from the bus station. Service was efficient and nothing to complain about with the food! Fun bright atmosphere if you want to have some drinks with dinner.

Description
We took the downtown Cancun bus, got off by the big grocery store, Chedraui, and cabbed to the restaurant for 25 pesos. It is bright and cheery and has an awesome mural on the wall across from the cooking area. The variety of meat fillings and combinations for tacos is amazing and everything was delicious and inexpensive. No more La Parilla for us!!
