Best Tacos Ever
While you’re on vacation in Mexico, tacos are a must at some point! In Playa del Carmen, you might even hear the title for “Best Tacos Ever,” thrown around from time to time.
No doubt there are many contenders who vie for the throne of serving up the best tacos in town. One of those taco heavyweights is taquería El Fogόn. It is also one of the most well-known taco shacks in Playa.
Probably most famous for their oh-so-delicious tacos al pastor, El Fogόn serves up just about any other variety you may desire; ordered individually. Some serious burritos, steaks, and fajitas round out the menu. They bring out big portions of food for very good prices, which is all a part of what makes El Fogόn such a hit with travelers and locals alike.
There are two restaurants in Playa del Carmen, both being fairly close to one another. The smaller of the two sits just to the north of the MEGA grocery store on Constituyentes & 30th Ave. The second and larger restaurant [with two levels of seating] is a few blocks south, on the corner of 30th Ave and calle 6 Bis.
Word to the wise: the smaller spot, near MEGA, is often the most popular and more crowded of the two. There can even be a line running down the sidewalk of those waiting for a table in the evening!
(TIP: Show up before 6pm if you don’t want to wait. Or you can make the fairly short walk down to the other restaurant and more than likely get seated sooner.)
So while you’re staying at a downtown condo, take an evening at El Fogόn, sit down loosen your belt, and start eating! Who knows, at the end of the night you might even catch yourself saying, “those were the Best Tacos Ever!”
