A popular spot a short distance from The Reef RV Park where we were staying. Reasonable beer prices. I ate a Chimichanga while my husband had fish tacos. They were tasty and very reasonable.

Let's get this straight from the get go. JJ's was never meant to be place for uppity people looking for resort style cuisine and kiss butt service. JJ's is also not a dive bar that attracts the wrong element and serves you when you get...More

I was there for Circus Mexicus so the fun was already there. Mostly this place had its act together (and I own a music venue). About my only complaint is they could hardly take pesos!
