Fodor's Review

The equivalent of a "soul food" restaurant for Los Guerrerense (the people of Guerrero state), this noisy, fun spot a few blocks from the beach, amid small shops and cafés, specializes in the traditional cuisine of the deep countryside. Tamales—16 different kinds—are the menu's most popular items. Ingredients ranging from pork and chicken to poblano peppers and squash blossoms are wrapped in masa, drenched in rich sauces, and baked in corn husks or banana leaves.

Pozole, a pork-and-hominy stew that is traditionally eaten on Thursday, is a specialty of the house. There's also a restaurant in Ixtapa at Centro Comercial los Arcos in front of the kiosk. Breakfast is served daily at the downtown Zihua location (in Ixtapa, daily except Sunday).

Great food for a great price

This review is actually for the Tamales Y Atoles Any in Ixtapa. The food there was soooooo good; you have to try the pozole. The people there were very nice and accommodating.

Unchanged, thank goodness!

Still the best tamales and many other dishes for the money in "Z". You can stuff yourself for a few dollars and it's very good. Service is spotty but friendly and it has an authentic atmosphere. I must warn that this restaurant is located at a busy corner in downtown "Z" and has 2 open sides to traffic and pedestrian noise but I think it adds to the charm and authenticity. Don't miss it.

Z favorite!

We like this place so much we ate here several times on our last trip. My favorite is the Pork tamale wrapped in a banana leaf.

Authentic Mexican Cuisine

This restaurant has authentic Mexican food. It features live entertainment on Thursdays, with dancers representing the different states in Mexico. Located in downtown Zihuatanejo on a busy street (which caused me to rate the "atmosphere" at a "3"), this is one not to miss.
