Fish tacos to set you in a beach mood! Great kitchen! They just need yo upgrade a bit the service and the bathrooms could use an improvement. Really tasty food for anyone looking to enjoy some seafood or fish tacos or dishes. Recomended.

Taco Loco is an excellent seafood lunch choice since they close at 6:00pm. Ask for a table in the aire condicionado section. It's located in the south side of the city and a little hard to find on foot or by driving (Chetumal doesn't always have street signs marked well) but by cab, just tell the driver "Taco Loco." All...

I have been visiting this place since I was a kid and is honestly worth it. This is fresh food, great service and typical mexican cuisine at its finest. The restaurant is an icon among the Chetumaleños in the city. It is a well known and cherished business, serving the best seafood and dishes. Their taste has been the best... More
