A small place you might drive by if you blinked but the friendliest staff and amazing food. Only in the Area for 10 days and went three times. And that was only because I didn't find the place till day 4. A modern day cheers. Sit at the bar during happy hour and instantly feel like you've been going there... More

My wife and I went here for evening food during a stay prior to a cruise. Choice of Mexican food was good but the presentation could have been better.

Wow! This place was quite the surprise! The front is almost unassuming, almost tucked back and 'dive' looking from the outside. The chicken nachos were a delicious surprise and the chicken fajitas were the best I've ever had. Reasonable prices.

Great Mexican food - I ALWAYS look forward to the fajitas when we make the decision to return and they never disappoint :-) The burritos and margaritas also get great reviews from my travel buddies. It's in a good location with parking close to the beach, not too much frontage so you can go past by mistake but the prices... More

The only way to describe this place is average. Food and drinks were just OK. Nothing stood out at all about the place.

The place is a great location, friendly staff and good service. Really cheap too. The food, however, is pretty bad. It seemed microwaved. My favorite is to get standard soft tacos, which they didnt have.
