To ensure the best quality for Porky's Smokehouse Meats, we start with the best meats available.

Marina's Restaurant - I would like to let everyone know about Marinas Restaurant in Pescadero. The food is well prepared, delicious and delivered in record time. Their Bacon Cheeseburgers are to die for, even if the french fries are the frozen type. You are so enamored with the size and flavor of the burger that the fries become a compliment.

The inside is quite large with many tables and even a pool table. They have a big screen TV with Satellite channels in English, well stocked bar, large kitchen, clean bathrooms, and an down-home ambiance. I ordered a Corona and got a very cold beer with freshly cut limon and had to comment to them about that because so many places pre-cut their limon and by the time it comes to the table it's dry and the juice is almost gone. Happy hour is 5-6 pm. Marina, Eduardo and Karin are English friendly and always have a big smile, a hand shake and hug available. Karin is a waitress (and wife of Eduardo) with gusto and detail to service.

From Todos Santos, pass the Pemex and the main paved road into Pescadero and then look immediately to the left and you'll see it. They have live music on Saturdays and Sundays. I highly recommend this place and would proudly give it the "Best Burgers of Baja" award! Enjoy! - Kathy Gordon, katiejay99 [- at -] gmail.com, Todos Santos
