This place was right in the heart of a party atmosphere area. Tons of bars and restaurants. Great really busy area. Food at Panama Joe's was fantastic, so were the drinks. Had the jalapeno steak tacos with jalapeno cabbage. Mmmmm. Chips and salsa were awesome. I think I ate 3 bowls myself. Happy hour was a great deal. Buy 1... More

Slow service with one waitress for pretty much the entire place for lunch. Appetizer cam out with lunch. Nacho chips tastes rancid. Fish and shrimp tacos weren't edible. Left half of the burrito Badness all around

This was a great place to go for my 1st ever visit to Cali. The staff was great...special thanks to Fab for taking care of me while I was there. Will definitely be making a return visit. The security was tight all night Brandon was keeping things in check. Met some great people that night.

I eat lunch here 4 times per week. I love the fresh double tostadas. And this place has primo cheeseburgers...the meat is excellent. If you don't want the fries, they'll give you beans at no extra cost. Join the lunch club M-F, every 5th lunch is free up to $10. Nachos are awesome, so is the salsa. I used to... More

Or looking for one. Took 10 minutes to get bar tenders attention, than another 10 to get an order in. If you're hungry or thirsty, you could starve here. Good looking place, but they cater to college girls mostly. Food was ok when I got it but didn't have the patience to continue. There are plenty of great places in... More

Before heading to the Queen Mary we walked down Belmont Shores 2nd Street shopping district. We wanted some lunch and stopped here. One friend had the $4.99 egg, bacon and Hawaiian bread french toast, which she enjoyed. The two other of us had their hamburger plates at about $15 each. Buns were brioche buns which were soft and flavorful. Hamburger... More

We went a little earlier then happy hour started. Order a drink and a late lunch. Enjoyed the meal. Then happy hour started. Ordered a drink, got 2!! Awesome. Pina Colada's are one of the best I've tasted. Had to be made with real Coconut milk. Delicious.

The best chorizo I have eaten without question. The cheeses, jalapeño cream, eggs, and chorizo make a savory blend. Chips and salsa were disappointing as the chips were sprinkled with a flavored red powder - note to restaurateur, don't do this; your food doesn't need the help. If possible, request a table either on the sidewalk patio or just inside... More
