We lived in Encinitas for two years before hitting up Las Olas. HUGE mistake! Great location—right across from the beach, lots of parking and great salsa. Enough said!

I don’t know how long this restaurant has been but I think it’s a long time. Seems to be a real tradition in the area. Casual since it is across from the beach but good food and drinks.

Cute beach restaurant that is super casual. Fun atmosphere atmosphere and the service has always been good and the margaritas and chips and salsa are excellent after a day at the beach. A bit touristy, but thats to be expected for the location.
