Late Night: Taquería El Gran Pastor is hugely popular with tourists, primarily the late night bar crowds that spill out from downtown bars like Rips, Cabo Wabo, Tanga Tanga, and Jungle Bar. There is no seating here. This is a stand up taco shop, and the crowds are often three deep on the sidewalk out front. Gran Pastor specializes in tacos al pastor, of course, made with meat from a giant spit of marinated pork. These tacos should also include cilantro, onions, and pineapple (traditionally cooked on top of the pork so that an enzyme found in the fruit will make the meat particularly tender), but the pineapple isn't a given in Cabo San Lucas. El Gran Pastor, therefore, is a happy exception, and one of the town's great late night pit stops.
