Description: From steak to seafood, vegetables to burgers, anything that Rufo can throw on his grill he does -- and to much success, too. The outdoor restaurant fits perfectly with the charcoal grill flavors, fresh corn tortillas and hearty homestyle portions that makes Rufo's so popular. There's often a crowd during high season but it's worth coming early or staying late to get a taste. Rufo is a personable host and takes extra effort to make each customer's experience unique and fully satisfying. He has even been known to bring out a large platter of grilled steak, ribs, fish and shrimp for a group to sample when they can't make up their mind. There isn't a huge bar selection but the margaritas are strong and the beer is cold. On a hot Zihuatanejo night, what more could you ask for?

They have live music. The staff and food were amazing. The menu is extensive from fresh fish to beef and ribs. The best margaritas. We loved it.

We ate supper here twice and the food was very good. There was a singer one night and dancers the other, both were very entertaining. The local cat and dog wandered in and out which didn't bother me but my traveling companion was not to thrilled with the cat rubbing up against her legs. Why is it cats can always tell who doesn't like them?!

Rufo's food is absolutely wonderful! The arrachera is the best! My husband loves the Sierra fish! The food is cooked on a charcoal grill and is so tasty. They have live music on certain nights and if you ask, Rufo will play his guitar! He is quite good! Don't miss Rufo's for a great meal and a fun night with music!

Delicious food (try the ribs!) in a casual setting. Loved the musician playing jazz standards on keyboard and sax. Very reasonable prices. Definitely worth seeking out.
