    I came here for lunch twice during my stay in Las penitas. The food is good (burgers / Mexican), the service better. Great little place to grab a bite, a beer and shoot the breeze with the owner. A solid choice.

    If your looking for food I cannot recommend this place more. If you want an open friendly bar with great conversation, hosts and music there is nowhere to compare. So good we came back 3 times, our home from home. Will be sad to leave.
