What a cool place! Yes, the food was good, the menu was huge and it was nice to be able to order tacos individually to try out a few. Margaritas were large and served in heavy glass goblets. Great food and margaritas are easy to find in this town, but the exuberant live music, incredible decor and vibrant spirit of this place makes it a feast for all the senses! I could try to describe more, but you should really just experience it for yourself!

We stopped in for dinner, the place was packed (I hear it always is) but we were quickly seated. About 5 people waited on us...a bit confusing as we would have ended up with 10 beers if we weren't careful.

The food was all show I guess and really just average. We had the fried cheese - skip it; we had a volcano bowl - touristy; a some sort of potato out of the skin, wrapped in foil and then stuffed with...stuff. Nothing was remarkable.

A bit disappointing from all that we heard about this spot and not in the resort area...kinda parked in the hood.

Great setting and atmosphere. It's not located in the hotel area next to the beach, but it surely is worth it to trek into the city to get to this restaurant. The food is great, the setting is cool, and the service is good. So what else do you need for a great dinner evening? Appetite... The tacos al pastor is one of their specialty.

May not be the greatest food, although there are dishes that I can't get anywhere else; the bar is sporadic but usually good drinks; at times the worst music we've ever heard; they never add the bill correctly, but the place is hoot, and we go back again and again... it's all about the atmosphere and I often recommend it right as the first meal off the airplane -- gets you right in the San Jose del Cabo mood right away!!

A little off the beaten track. Excellent moderate fare. Good size portions. Casual party atmosphere with live music, open kitchen, hustle and bustle. Fun meal.
