We had a fantastic time at Fat Boys. Everything you would expect to see in Mexico seemed to be happening here all at once. Both good and bad. We will not hesitate to go back. Expect a lot of beach vendors, but a polite no, keeps them moving. Fantastic beach.

The margarita's are usually top notch but can be inconsistent. The sea food is the best on the beach and the chicken fajita's never fail to impress. You can sit right on the beach or... More

WOW. Talk about incredible food. This little beachside restaurant is the best seafood I've ever had. They specialize in fresh daily seafood. This is not your average seafood restaurant.

Great location beside the general market and town square area. We had read good ratings and weren't disappointed. Split the shrimp tacos (yummm) which came with a serving of rice w/corn and just right cooked mixed fresh vegetables. Pineapple and Mango Margaritas topped it all off for about 300 pesos. Excellent value, great food, toes in the sand and an... More

The Fat Boy Seafood was a great treasure find as was Bucerias in general! I enjoyed the shrimp quesadillas two nights in a row plus their own custom margarita.

Wonderful setting on the beach for a reunion with friends. Try the banana margaritas! Both the avocado stuffed with shrimp and the lobster were great. Great waiters...
