Every chance we get to head down to Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point), my family seeks out Chino! He's moved around a few times, but his food has always been fresh & deliciously awesome! You're the best, Chino!

The carne asada tacos are fabulous. Our group of 13 raided them! Initially and husbands and teen boys found chino's for a little appetizer! But then we had to go back for more, since they kept raving about them. They were amazing!

There were two Chino's, and I think the previous reviewer who said Chinos is closed was referring to the Chinos on the main road; however, as far as I know, the one across from the Hacienda furniture store is still open. They have wonderful tacos and quesadillas.

Chino has been serving street food in Old Port for years, and the flavors are first rate. My favorite is the quesadilla special - awesome!

Was hoping to try, but it has closed down. Din't know if it's a temporary victim of the road closure/construction on the main drag into town or what.

Oh yeah baby. He'll even grill a fresh fish or shrimp for you (BYO). Best sidewalk food in Penasco- maybe it looks sketchy if you are not used to food stands, but if you go up onto his patio, it's made of stone and higher than the street and quite nice. These are great peeps who treat their customers right... More

Watch out for the grilled jalapenos, I love super spicy food but today I threw on my taco & it brought tears to my eyes. Very friendly & you meet the nicest people because there are only three tables &... More

Chino is so friendly, and always remembers who you are! This is not a restaurant, it is a taco stand. This photo that was shown is not a pic of his work....but his carne asada is delish! His wife and daughter are usually helping him.. He is now located on the corner - on the up street from the Malecon.... More

Chino is a taco genius and makes amazing food, including tacos, quesadillas, caramelos, etc. Bring him seafood and he'll make you fresh dishes with it! He cooks from his home and you eat in his family's front yard. He always has a smile and a hug and is ready to cook. Food is served up with fresh radishes and cucumber... More
