“THIS IS THE PLACE TO EAT SOUTH OF THE BORDER FOR U.S. CANADIAN FOOD!!!!!!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We feel very fortunate to have the talents of "Chef Paul" here. "Godzilla's Monster Burger" has a great family menu at the best prices! I should know. i have lived here for over 34 years!

No matter what is prepared it is with their own daily fresh baked bread. This restaurant not only caters to foreigner's, but also to the Nationals who we are seeing there more and more.

We have seen over time that to exist in a famous beach resort as Manzanillo, it is important to maintain clientele from both commumities, year after year foreign and Mexican. It appears that is the only way they can have success all year round.

What is amazing is that the quality of Paul's menu is consistent! As General Director of a Foreign Community Association, A.C. All of Mexico and beyond! called HELP! I recommend this Restaurant to everyone we know that is visiting.

Congratulations Paul. Keep up the great job. And thank you for the great Corned Beef and Cabbage on St. Patrick's Day!!!

“The Best. ”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Sometimes I can't help but question that one of my favorite restaurants in Manzanillo is a "hamburger joint." How odd, right?

Manzanillo, essentially, has no gourmet cuisine, no one fabulous "go-to" destination for fabulous dining.

The few cafés here that are good, that prosper, that attract both local & foreign diners are good and simple.

The good cafés create good comfort food from scratch, from quality local sources, and without any pretensions whatsoever.

Godzilla's is that sort of wonderful cafe/pub/casa otra.

The beef comes fresh from a farm, hand-selected sirloin ground & grilled perfectly with any topping or any side dish imaginable (think: cheddar, bacon, blue cheese,etc.)

The fish is fresh. The bread is homemade. The Negra Modelo beer is on tap & arrives in a frosted mug or pitcher.

The wait staff is young, attentive, sweet & mostly bilingual. Many stay forever, a testimony to good mgmt.

The owner is friendly, funny, & charming.

Oh. And the ribs. Oh!

The 80s MTV channel & the decor sort of suck, but big deal.

“Awesome Burgers!”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

It was great to have an awesome burger when you are in Mexico. I highly recommend stopping by, if you are staying at a resort in Mexico. Some times you get tired of eating the same old thing. Our resort didn't have bacon the whole time we were there, so of course the bacon cheese burger did the trick!

“Great burgers!”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We ate at Godzilla's a couple of times and really enjoyed the burger and fries and the Dorado fish and chips. The burgers are really large and the beers cold. Very simple, somewhat strange décor, but the burgers make up for that. Quite a walk from the Barceló Karmina Palace but you can walk it or take a bus.
