    Our favorite place to go in the Yucatan and even tho the food is great - the true pull to Lizard Joe's is Paul & Cynthia! Fabulous place to hang out and meet new friends and then re-meet them as old friends the next time you go! The food is fabulous, the music ROCKS, and the folks that hang out there are the best!! Can't wait to go back next winter!

    I am a huge fan! Food is amazing, and Paul and Cynthia make you feel like a guest in there more than a customer in restaurant!

    Lizard Joe's is a blast, great food, great music and super great owners. We have been several times and have had the best times ever!!! The live music is awesome, but most of all the people are so friendly. Come and see for yourself. Karen

    Lizard Joes ia a great place to hang out, the owners welcome all, newcomers, regulars, with a warm and sincere hospitality. Friday nights is a great gig for fellow muscians like myself, and a wealth of local talent from Chelem, Chuburna, and many, many other areas alike, the food is great, and the service amazing.

    Check it Out, for sure.
