who nose
check out ronny's "grillmeister" big al
he will give you a tour
i think you will be impressed by the level of cleanliness
far beyond much of playa, as a careful german would be expected to act

ni modo, i aint got no horse in this race
good food, good price, clean place

go see for yerself
Believe me, snap, we will be heading into Ronny's place more than likely several times in our month + stay starting Feb 4! Loved him at Mannes, will love him there! So exciting that I can also buy some meats to take to my apartment to cook! Hmmmmmmm. German sausage, fried eggs and homefries for breakfast on the rooftop! Can't be beat!

If you can get to Chamico, get there. One of the guys went fly fishing. But this is a most secluded relaxing spot with a beautiful palm tree lined beach area.
What was this thread about? Sorry, I forgot.......Grillmeister.
Ha..I was looking for this...well hidden among the sausages.
Could you give precise instructions from the highway...which signs to follow anywhere etc? Only have car today and thought we might try to find it...
txs!

hmm....maybe the directions should be in a new thread tho?!

Not Al, and yeah, , but we found Chamico's last year and loved it there.
It's the same road that you used to take to Oscar y Lalo's. Just go right instead of left when you come to the end of the main road from the highway. Go all the way down that road to the end and you'll see it.
I was disappointed we didn't make it there this last trip.

Are there still no restrooms at Chamico? Or has that changed?

There is a bathroom...of sorts! Functional but interesting A room with a stone floor (more like a stone floor surrounded by tent), a door held closed with a piece of brain coral, a toilet base in 1 corner, an empty bucket, perhaps some TP and 2 big rain barrels outside! Put the pieces together and it works just fine

We went today...this place is fabulous but I wouldn't want it lost amongst the sausages again as I had a heck of a time trying to locate it....I think it deserves its own piece of thread

I'm sorry to hijack this thread but a bunch of pictures I took at Chamico's a year ago can be found starting here, in case you're interested. Love this spot!

Talking Good Eats at a Good Price!

Made a stop at Grillmeister last Thursday. Ronny is a very gracious host and spent quite a bit of time explaining how everything from the mustard to the curry sauce to the sausages are prepared fresh in-house.

Then, we tucked in to a couple of really good (and huge!) Short Rib Sandwiches and I had to add a Sausage with Curry Sauce, just to try it, for dessert. It all worked and it was yummy.

Well done, Ronny! We'll be back.
