This is the best place in PDC to help you with your al pastor craving. Watch the chef launch the pineapple slice into the tortilla before he starts adding the al pastor. This guy is a master!

Mexican cantina with authentic Mexican food. Food was delicious and prices were very low. Portions were sooo huge so were the margaritas. We enjoyed Mexican atmosphere with local music and local people.

Felt a bit off the beaten path. Fun to see the areas around the touristy playa streets. Great tacos, loved the cucumber /radish with lime and salt plate. So simple but so good with tacos. Was nice to be among what felt like locals.

Always an experience. Effecient service, excellent prices and good food freshly cooked in open kitchen which of itself is entertaining to watch. Live music by a variety of local musicians. A must when in Playa. Both locations are excellent.

Sorry thought you were asking about another place. Here I had tacos I forget the Spanish word for what it was but it was first on the menu and we got a variety. We also got a burrito type thing and that was great as well.
