This restaurant is located in an urban area a few blocks inland from the beach district. No ocean views or many tourists. Very popular with locals, expats and snowbirds. Large combination plates of grilled items can easily be shared. Good prices and credit cards accepted....TV's and occaisonal live music.More

If you visit Playa del Carmen, do not miss this. The specialty is the Taco Pastor, which is slow cooked pork which is carved in open view. It's hard to describe how tasty it is. And it's cheap! I also had a sirloin taco, also...very good.More

We just finished our dinner at El Fogon and it was the best, authentic Mexican food we have had all trip. The food is soo good we stuffed ourselves till we could eat no more. The portions are huge and the prices are very reasonable...(even cheap). Thomas was our server and he was fantastic - fast, efficient and very helpful. This place is well worth the 10 minute walk from the over priced, over crowded, mediocre food places on 5th Ave.More

This place is an awesome, awesome place to get tacos in what is an authentic Mexican style dinner! There isn’t much to look at, but I think that is part of the charm. We will definitely be back!

Best tacos in the whole Riviera Maya! And is really cheap! We tried the tacos, the nachos, the margaritas, they had live mexican music and entertainment! We found this place after asking many people (bartenders, receptionists, taxi drivers, etc) there which was the best place...for tacos and they all said this place! 10 out of 5 stars!!!!More

Great fast friendly service, awesome flavors and price! We had 5 different types of tacos and a skirt steak platter, also the ranchero beans and 6 ice cold beers. Our party of four ate until full, and our bill was under $40us dollars! This is...a stop NOT to be missed, so glad we stopped in on the recommendation of a local on where to get good authentic food. He was right!More

sorry for the late response this place is a 3 min walk from 5th ave on a very busy street right across from Megamart busy street and very safe but I believe they close early each evening check the website for that
