Try Papa Loca in Zihua. They also have excellent twice baked potatoes.

This has actually been asked and answered numerous times if you try the Search feature, but what the heck. I think Los Braseros has the best Tacos al Pastor. Others folks may have different opinions.

Los Braseros is definitely a great spot for Pastor and other meats

Los de cabeza mixta en Peta con Limon are crazy good.

Thanks, Rob.

And although I know questions on restaurants are answered regularly, there is nothing like recent experience. Went to Los Braseros last week and was disappointed.

You may be at a point to ask your banda where are we going for tacos de pastor?

Or, ask your taxi driver and explore.

Hotel employees recommend Taqueria El Pastorcito years ago, it’s one of our must goes every trip.

Or, enjoy the local natural fare and at the same time support the local economy.

Ixtapa Zihuatanejo is not "famously" known for tacos del pastor.

La comida de Costa es por que es de Costa. The Mexican food you know from where are from, is that.

Come out and enjoy the local fare.

Thanks for letting me know. Sorry to hear you had a bad experience there. Care to share specifics?

Right you are about recent experience.

Thanks for following up.

They were probably short staffed, so food came very, very slowly. Dirty dishes were piled up on the side. The usual salsas were hard to come by, we had to ask a number of times to get 'refills'. And the pastores were meager, and the meat a bit over-done. The other food was as good as ever - I had a vegetarian huarache that was delicious.

We have some people visiting, and want to give them the true pastores experience.

Went last night and had a wonderful dinner at La Papa Loca. Great good, great service. Phenomenal al pastor tacos.
And yes, vibe is different than Los Braseros.

Thank you everyone!
