Los Fabulosos Tacos Playa Del Carmen

Los Fabulosos is a taco and Mexican food restaurant on 10th Street. It is just off 5th Avenue so you might come across it an think this is a  good place to get something to eat. So is it?

The menu here has tacos, burritos, volcanes, tortas, and  the usual Mexican food items. There is a bar with cocktails and beer here. Prices are the same or higher then other similar type restaurants in the center of Playa. Tacos are 14-46 pesos each with arachera meat making the highest prices. Non alcoholic drinks are 25-30 pesos and cocktails about 75 pesos and beer from 25 pesos to 55 pesos.

It is hard for a taco restaurant in Mexico not to be good but we were disappointed in this place. First off there are just two salsas here, both red and in plastic bottles. No fresh pico de gallo (fresh copped tomatoes, onion, an cilantro) salsa or a range of other options like many other good taco restaurants have.

Below is a photo of their taco de pastor. It was good and basic but with limited salsa options it does make it a little boring. The other photo is the volcanes. It was a bit disappointing with a hard crisp tortilla and just meat and cheese. For 70 pesos for the 3 you cannot help but think what else I could of gotten at other restaurants. The volcanes are much better right next door on the second floor restaurant of Santanera.

This restaurant is very accessible to the late night crowd and is an easy option to eat at if you are going to the bars on 10th Street. In fact, it helps if you are drinking so you don’t mind eating basic quality food. If you are not drunk and value a little more about what you what you eat, be sure to check out some of the other taco restaurants in Playa in the below mentioned articles.

It is easy to spend over 100 pesos per person here but is it worth it?

  1. We found this taco place late at night and were glad they were open. We don’t know if it was an off night but it seemed like people just served drunk people and tourist and the quality of the food was not fabulous. We have had much better tacos at El Fogon and a couple other places in Playa Del Carmen. If you want authentic tacos or good ones, skip here.

    We stopped in this taco restaurant with some friends and they thought it was really good but we knew better. Compared with other taco places in Playa del Carmen this place is just average. They want to get the late night crowd fed. Don’t go here for an authentic meal, there are much better places.

  3. They should call it “Just ok tacos” Nothing special except the location is near the clubs.

  4. El Fogon is the real place to go. Much better even for tourist to go to. You can get to El Fogon fairly easy as well.

    I would give this place an average rating. I have had worst and better tacos.

  6. I’ve learn some good stuff here. We wanted to try some authentic Mexican tacos and were looking for restaurants to try. You have a very informative website. Thanks for all your articles.

  7. This place is just for nightclub people that want tacos late at night.

  8. Good day! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give
    a quick shout out and say I genuinely enjoy reading your posts. Thank you so much!

  9. They should call these tacos ho hum as in just average tacos. I like El Fogon better for tacos in Playa del Carmen.

  10. Hi therᥱ. We always send our friends to El Fogon on Constituyentes Avenue for tacos in Playa Del Carmen. They are also consistant and out of the tourist area.

  11. The three taco places by Constituyentes and 20th Avenue are all better for tacos. This is just ok and nothing special.

  12. I think El Fogon is much better for tacos in Playa del Carmen. This place only lives off the location and grabs innocent tourist to give them basic food.
