The manager opened to accomodate a business meeting. He was attentive and interested in the group discussion. The food was delicious and affordable.

Stopped by to grab some lunch and get takeout. Haven't eaten here in a few years. It did not disappoint. Tacos were so good, the ground beef had such a nice flavor. And the homemade flour tortillas, WOW! We will be going back.

After seeing a recent Virginia newspaper's review, I sought out this little gem. Fire occupancy quotes safely "33." So this is a small hole in the wall which I've been by many times. SO glad I stopped in for a take out. Yummy soft corn taco with ground beef & cheese. But, outstanding empanada!! Wow, woo! Terrific! And the salsa... More

Disappointed that they didn't serve margaritas or that their sangria wasn't homemade. The yucca fries were good and the tacos were good. Nothing to special about the place except their pork is suppose to be wonderful. I don't eat pork so I couldn't say.

We noticed the restaurant sign while eating at another place and looked it up. I was immediately interested because of the tostones and black bean dip appetizer. We had lunch there the next day and the tostones were some of the best I've had. This place is great is if you have vegetarians or gluten-free diet restrictions. The staff was... More

We were in the OBX for the week. I stumbled across this place from a Facebook post of a friend who lives there. It is located in a small strip mall. It is a small restaurant but packs a big punch with its entrees. Checking out the menu, we decided to go with soft shell shrimp tacos and the fried... More

So this won't be about the food as we didn't eat there. It's about the most unappreciative attitude we were greeted with. There were five adults and two kids in our party. As we walked in the door, the greeter informed us that they were incredibly busy (we saw at least 3 open tables and seats at the bar) and... More

The burritos are huge and really yummy. The chips and queso were great too. It's a white cheese dip - not the usual blah nacho cheese. The staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.
