Nothing fancy. You can be dressed in attire at this beach close Mexican restaurant. Food is good, generous and restaurant has been family owned and run for 50 years. All their locations are great. Good service as well.

Great Mexican place. Guacamole is very fresh and good. My husband had the steak quesadillas and I had a cheese tamale with grilled veggies and beans. Great food. Easy access to the place. Great service. Highly recommend!

I was disappointed when I tasted their menudo because it was can menudo. Don't serve it if you don't make it. Other food was ok, I guess.

Food was very flavorful and service was very good. If you have any dietary needs, you need to be clear about those needs.

The restaurant was noisy and crowded (it was a Saturday night). The staff were efficient, but hurried. The food was okay, but certainly not exceptional.

We stumbled upon this place walking around. We definitely not disappointed the food and the service was amazing! The complimentary fruit and soup bar was great, they allowed our 2 year old to just eat from there.
