While staying in Lewes for a couple of days we were told of this restaurant for some good Mexican food. It was more that good to us. We both loved our dinners. Very good Mexican food. When I talk of Lewes, I mention this.

The staff and atmosphere were great! It was fun to watch the very busy bartenders creating craft cocktails while being very attentive to their customers. We loved the food. Although the place was extremely busy, The service and food was wonderful.

Stopped in for lunch after reading reviews. We enjoy Mexican food and I always sample a margarita. The drink here was perfect. Started off with chips, salsa and queso. Only negative is most Mexican restaurants have complimentary chips and salsa. Other than that no complaints....More
