We ate here one evening and had a wonderful Mexican meal. I had the enchiladas and the Mrs. had the Taco Salad and both were quite good. It's located in a convenience store, but don't let that be off putting.......the food is good.

We spent the weekend on Lopez Island and stumbled into this little store and restaurant. We ate on the back deck at a picnic table. The rueben was meaty and zesty. The portabella mushroom sandwich was loaded with mushrooms. The service was very smiley, prompt...More

A surprisingly wide range of products - including a small but good selecion of organic fruits and veggies - make this a great little store to buy picnic items when exploring the south end of the island. Staff were friendly and helpful too :-)
