Always our go to place when in Cabo. Javier is such a wonderful and humble man. He has made the best tacos for years and great prices too. Our now adult sons still want to make this our first stop.

The fish tacos were sublime but once Gordo got started singing I was astounded! What a treasure! This has been on my list for years and so glad we finally found the doors open.

Do not walk past this hole-in-the-wall. Javier makes amazing tortas and tacos, and they cost basically three dollars. If you're lucky he'll sing to you while accompanying himself on tiny toy instruments. It's an unforgettable experience!

We saw him June 15, and he looked tired. He smiled when we asked about his health, but he had obviously lost weight. He said the "government" was the reason he couldn't sell beer right now, but the tacos are as good as ever.
