El Taquito is closed as of January, 28, 2016. We were there on January 27, and while certainly not fancy, it was an exceptional value. We enjoyed the Corona buckets and the nachos and we had a good time.

Rest was close by and we were feeling like Mexican food. Not a bad place to stop by and have some food and drinks on their outside deck.

We did not eat here aside from some guacamole that was so so. The real draw was the cheap buckets of Coronas. The bar staff was friendly and attentive. If you are looking for some cheap brews right near the beach access, this will do.
