The Best Restaurants in Rocky Point

As you drive into Rocky Point, there is a chicken stop just off the main drag on Benito Juarez (Pollo Lucas). If you like grilled chicken, you need to stop here and get some chicken. You will not be disappointed. Every time I come into town this is our first stop.  Sometimes we will just take the chicken back to the condo. It normally stays hot because the resorts are all fairly close. I also strongly recommend getting the beans. WOW! These could be the best refried beans I have ever eaten. It is fairly inexpensive and the only downside is that during the high season, it gets fairly busy. Even during that time, it is worth the wait!

Rocky Point Seafood Restaurants

Years ago there were no gourmet restaurants in Rocky Point. Now we have several as well as some of the best chefs in Mexico. We are more than gringo Mexican food. Our chefs at Pan y Vino, Mar Blu, Garufa, Chef Mickey’s, Moo Steakhouse, and Blue Marlin are not afraid to inject spice into their food.

All of the restaurants make use of what Rocky Point is known for and that is seafood like big beautiful shrimp and fresh fish. The shrimping season starts by the end of the summer and it provides some real beauty from the Sea of Cortez. Here we have fresh grouper, triggerfish, sea bass, and other larger species being brought in daily. There are a couple of places that will offer lobster, but it does not come from the water here. You can get the freshest of clams and oysters harvested daily and served in many delicious presentations.

Our favorite restaurants for seafood are Mar y Blue and Puesta Del Sol.  They are both just amazing seafood but each with its own qualities.  I personally love calamari and clams and May y Blue just has the best calamari.  Their octopus is also pretty amazing but the views from the tables are beautiful.  At Puesta Del Sol, get their large seafood platter.  The great thing about Puesta Del Sol is that on weekends, it is a little more lively.  It has live music and it’s a better atmosphere.  Their clams, squid and octopus that come with their seafood tower are amazing!  You can’t go wrong with either of these choices.  There are many other places to get great seafood, these are just personal favorites.

Besides fresh seafood… there is steak!

Many restaurants serve up some wonderful steaks from the state of Sonora. The area of Caborca and Hermosillo (the state capital) provide us with tender and favorable beef that is some of the best in Mexico as well as the United States. Sonora is known for its beef that is not fed to grow quickly, but rather to age properly. Most restaurants serve fresh-cut, never frozen steaks to insure the flavor is there.Rocky Point also has great little taco stands that open up in the late afternoon, which will fulfill your taco craving.

If you are just looking for carnitas tacos, there are many places with great tacos.  The street side tacos seem to be the favorite of visitors to Rocky Point.  My personal favorite is La Vaca Chenca on the strip.  As for actual steaks, Garufa is a very nice steak restaurant but you will be paying a pretty penny to eat here.  It is definitely worth it.

New Rocky Point Restaurants

There are new places opening frequently and thriving. There are a couple of restaurants that specialize in Mexican food both regional and from the south of Mexico. Regina’s will provide you with the tastes from the south of Mexico whereas La Curva gives you more traditional Sonoran Mexican food. Pizza has become a popular thing here in Rocky Point and you can get it in several places, for either dine-in or take-out. We now have companies that offer delivery to your home or condo, so you never have to go anywhere.

Check all of these delicious options for food in the following Rocky Point restaurants
