Happened upon this restaurant while walking and looking for a place to eat. The menu looked confusing so I told the man at the counter, owner I think, that I didn't know what I wanted but that I was hungry. He said he would take care of me and I told him not too much. I was brought a dish... More

Barbecue is great ! And very inexpensive! If you leave here hungry , something is wrong ! We ate lunch here twice during our week stay. Servings are HUGE, a chicken , kabob , chorizo platter is mouthwatering. Also includes tortillas, slaw, beans, potatoes and onions. The hot sauce is great . You will have plenty left over for another... More

I was going to have some friends over for dinner at the house I was staying at and had heard great things El Billy’s so I figured take out. I went up to it in the early afternoon to check their hours and found that they close at 5PM but I could put in an order for pickup near closing.... More

We heard about El Billy's on a diver website. On the surface, this appears to be a simple place that caters to local take out orders, but we experienced a truly exceptional meal here. There are two tables for eating in, which are located in the open air kitchen. Billy sent a guy out to pick up beer for us... More

Billy's is probably my gut favorite in Cozumel, especially in the mid-afternoon when you are really hungry and beat - like after a good day of diving! A massive grill full of perfect meats - poc chuc, chorizo, chicken, ribs. Amazing. And their grilled papas and cebollas (onions) are delicious, too. And the cole slaw, beans sauce, homemade hot salsa,... More

This is as authentic as it gets. I visited recently on a cruise port day. I purposely went here because of the photos and reviews on trip advisor. It was wonderful. I really enjoyed watching locals pull up on their scooters, get their food to go, and take off. If you have any questions about their food, these frequent stops... More

Very interesting restaurant. My son had been there before and took us on our visit. He had marvelous food. We picked up food for 24 people and it was enough for us to continue snacking for 5 days! Delicious!
