The breakfast burrito was off the chain! You'll only eat half of it because it comes with a nice heaping hot batch of hash browns. Eat the other half for lunch. Service was great and very fast.

Not only the best cheeseburger in Cabo, at $6US from 12-5:00pm, probably the least expensive. Have a late lunch, from 3-5:00pm M-F Happy Hour, and get two for one margaritas, mojitos, beers, and daiquiris made by Fidel, the best bartender in Cabo! Cash only.

We visited this restaurant twice on our most recent trip. I'm obsessed with their fish tacos with pineapple; the pineapple is the best addition! My other favorite thing is the blended mango daiquiri (also available as a margarita). The best drink I had all week....More

It’s the Mexican government 16% tax. No way we can get around it, sorry!

Yes we do! Our website has all our menus. Trip advisor won't let me post the actual site. But it's what you would think it would be, the whole name of the restaurant. We look forward to seeing and serving you in August!

Sorry you feel that way, we do serve very generous potions and feel our quality deserves the cost. Most agree and we hope you rethink it and check us out again.
