Best mex you'll find along north coast. Think the owner is from SoCal, so they know how to do it right. Awesome fish tacos, awesome burritos, be sure to try the homemade margaritas

The "special" fish tacos are amazing. This is basically a lunch spot. It's not a real restaurant; more akin to a fast food joint. But it's great.

Met the owner, super nice guy and they have fresh, tasty and reasonably priced food as well. Highly recommend this restaurant. Like Chipotle, but even better (fish tacos are the best!)

What can you add to the sterling reviews? Really nice, friendly people work here-they recommended the fish tacos-and they were very good. Great location for us, as we were at the Millennium Hotel, just a little bit west. Nice menu selections-great for lunch.
