“delicious tender take out ribs”
Review of Tino the Rib Man

Tino the Rib Man
Ranked #126 of 214 Restaurants in Isla Mujeres
Cuisines: Barbecue
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Apparently, Tino used to have bbq ribs only on Sat. and Sun. but we picked up an order on a Friday around 5:00, took it back to our balcony and feasted on succulent, well flavored ribs, sides of slaw, "beans" (seems like just bean juice) and warm tortillas. There's no restaurant, just Tino, his grills, and insulated "coolers" for storing the food. Delicious!

real deal BBQ on Isla. Only open on the weekends--get there early before all the meat is gone.
FANTASTIC pork ribs and chicken--and the meals come with rice and beans and tortilas and sauces--the whole nine yards. a fantastic way to kick off a sunday. went there early sunday morning and had the food for lunch on the beach. A+. easy to find--even though he is in a courtyard behind a wall--just follow the smell of great BBQ--you will see the smoke as you walk south on medina and bang a left on matamoras.

We had read about Tino but expected not to find him open due to the time of year (we heard he was only open during high season). But we spotted the huge cloud of smoke while on a golf cart joy ride and we knew we had to try some.

We ordered the ribs with bone, rib meat and chicken...bought some beers at a store across the road...then headed south to enjoy the meal on the coast of the pacific, sitting in the grass off the road. The food was great. Ribs with bone and the chicken being the highlights. The chicken skin (which I am a huge fiend) was divine. I will dream of it until I return for more.

Only open weekends Tinos is a great place for island BBQ. The ribs and chicken were excellent, fresh, and the price is right. The condiments were complimentary, although I'm not much of a fan of the watery beans, they weren't necessary. Get there early, earlier seems to = fresher.
