Want a good 'ole burger? Need some 'comfort' food?
Here is our short list of the best restaurants offering up American style food.
5th avenue between Calle 10 & 12
Wings, sliders, burgers, mac'n cheese, BLT's and more... The Tequila Barrel offers seating inside with A/C or outside where you can watch the passerby's on 5th avenue. They have multiple large TV screens that show live sporting events and even allow you to bet on the games. Daily happy hour specials and the kitchen is open from 9am to 1am daily.
8th street between 25th and 30th
Served up fresh and coming in diverse sizes of deliciousness, 3XL serves up some damn good burgers that are as flavorful as they are juicy. And these grilled goodies don't just come with a piece of lettuce and a slice of tomato sandwiched in between the buns. With a well-stocked condiment bar you'll turn that tasty burger into a monument of culinary excellence that's as good as it is made to order.
Calle 4 and 30th Avenue
Where everyone knows your name! This is the Cheers spot for Playa del Carmen. Located above Mom's hotel, this bar serves up homemade food like pork chops, burgers and their famous pulled pork. Want a laid back atmosphere with super friendly staff? Make sure you head over to Mom's Bar anytime from Monday to Friday from 5pm-11pm.
5th avenue between 20th and 22nd streets
This burger stop offers up all your favorites. 8 choices of burgers (including vegetarian and fish for the non-carnivores), ribs, onion rings, chicken wings and tacos. They also have big screens for sporting events. You're best to double check the bill as reportedly they already include the tip in the final amount!
Pig & Cock $$-$$$
5th Avenue between 38th and 40th
Forget cock fights, 'cause it's all about the succulence of the meats at this meat lover's paradise deep in the heart of Playa del Carmen's Fifth Avenue. Beef brisket, roasted chicken, corn on the cob and some rockin' porchetta. So wipe the drool off your keyboard, step outside that all-inclusive enclave, and go get you some cock. Or pig. Either way, bon appetit!
