Really good Mexican food surrounded by Mike Pence, George W Bush, Richard Nixon. A colorful restaurant, bedecked with baubles and photos of famous politician patrons. Even Jack Kennedy!

The atmosphere is so cool! The servers are super friendly. We shared the shrimp enchilada with white wine sauce and it was delicious. The chips and salsa are so so yummy!!

Place in San Clemente that worth visiting. Parking can be a pain and some times a bit crowded when compare to other locations. Comparable to other mex restaurants in San Clemente so it should be on list.

The restaurant is very colorfully decorated on the inside so it welcomed us right in. We got there for happy hour and had a pitcher of margaritas (6 glasses) for $28! The food was great too. We were not disappointed.

Stopped here with a friend. View was great as were salsa and guacamole. I had a shrimp taco. Good, but nothing to write home about. The waitress seemed annoyed to be helping us even though there weren’t many patrons there during the lunch hour.

Great traditional Mexican food, good salsa, chips, but the drinks are pricey. It is worth going just for the experience even though parking can be s bit challenging.
