This is the best Al pastor in town. We make several trips every time we are here. Wish they were open during the day.

Wanted some local tacos while visiting Cozumel with friends and El Pique was recommended. Wow what a great place in the heart of the real Cozumel not the tourist area. There were four of us and we ate tacos and beans and Pique till we couldn't eat anymore plus two or three beers each and our bill was $35 usd.... More

We arrived for our week long stay in Cozumel late...We asked the locals a good place to eat and they told us El Pique...Our family of 9 went back three times on our week stay. It was delicious and the waiters were very friendly. We ordered many things off the menus each time all were wonderful!

A great taqueria for travelers who are hoping to get a more authentic taste of Cozumel! We got 6 tacos (the gringas- pastor tacos with cheese), 2 beers, and 2 bowls of beans all for $10. Everything tasted fantastic and the price could not be beat! Add on top of all that- the staff were all super friendly and very... More

Starving when we arrived, we found a table even though the placed was very busy. Menu choices are painted on the wall - a nearby table of women helped to explain with our limited Spanish skills! Chicken (pollo) was great, so was bistec (steak) - get with cheese. Chorizo also great. Can't miss here. So cheap and good! Service is... More

Love this place- cold beer and cheap good tacos. Gringa Tacos are the best. It opens after 7 pm at night so no need to get there two early. Another plus is there is a grocery store across the street.

Ok why did you come to Cozumel and if you stayed in an all inclusive and never left you did not experience the cultural of Mexico you need to get out eat where the locals eat, experience a place that serves great street tacos and El Pique is one of the best.

We eat at El Pique multiple times each time we are in Cozumel. The service is great and the food is outstanding. Love everything I've tried but particularly the queso fundido and tacos gringas con queso. An absolute bargain for American travels. It's popular with locals and tourists. The staff is very patient with Americans with minimal Spanish communication skills.

The first time we came here was in November 2015 and it was Great and vowed to come back every time we're on the island and now the last time was November 2016. Tacos are good service is somewhat ok. I guess it's good enough since it's for basically for the locals. One example is, as my wife was ordering... More
