Haven't been to it in a few years but went today to see wrestling, but shucks, no lady wrestlers. The Fest has been really improved since first starting. There was all kind of food vendors but naturally heavy on the BBQ. The one complaint was very very limited seating. People were walking around with trays of food looking for somewhere, anywhere, to sit down and eat. Some of the new attractions were a camel ride - yes a real camel: pony rides for kids, there was a psychic reading cards and palms. There was even one booth which I guess was set up by Muslims with a sign saying, Discover Islam. I couldn't believe it. I imagine it will be packed again for final day on Sunday

    I lived here for years and didn't even know Tuxpan was there. There's no prominent sign out front, nothing flashy. Upon first entering, the place looks rather unspectacular... but the food and the service are top-notch. Tuxpan is solid and reasonably-priced, my go-to now for good Mexican food.

    Outstanding Mexican food. And they deliver!
