Cabo San Lucas

Going to Cabo San Lucas and was hoping for some recs on local favorites. TIA!

  1. We really enjoyed El Chilar in San Jose del Cabo, last year. Very reasonably priced and very good. We did get stopped by a poice officer as we left in our rental car for an "illegal" U turn. $20.00US saved the day. I think it's not unusual in this area to target tourists so obey every possible law!!

    1. Hope this isn't too late but, Mi Casa in Cabo, just off the old plaza, (a couple of streets behind the main drag), is one of my favorite places. Been going there for years and I think it is one of the best 'authentic' Cabo places. Also, try Pancho's, which not only serves food, but has a wall of tequila that is unbelievable. For tacos and cheap, try The Trailer Park for the fish tacos.

      1. I'll be going in September, so if you think of anymore please let me know.
        I've read some places close down for the month of September, should I be worried about this?

        1. Mi Casa was American Mexican - nothing special - in San Jose del Cabo there was a place - Don Emiliano that was EXCELLENT - you must have the octopus appetizer, not only delicious, but a work of art.

          1. I second Mi Casa and Pancho's. I think Pancho's also has a "Masters in Tequila" course which was fun. You take an hour long class with a tequila expert who teaches you how the various types of tequila and Mezcal are made, then you taste test, and then you get a very amusing diploma. Highly recommended!
