We loved the side street cantina so much we ate there twice while at the beach for a week. The food and drinks were excellent both times! The service is a little on the slow side, but everyone was very friendly!

Affordable, delicious family food. Service was friendly and efficient. Our whole family ate for a fraction of other restaurants. Their white salsa is addictive!

Really enjoyed the food and drinks and it's super convenient to our hotel across the street! Menu had seafood and meat options and wasn't expensive. Staff was okay.
