There are new owners and updated menu including a children's menu. The best Margaritas in town made with fresh limes. Plenty of free parking. The loaded nachos are the best in town. Great entrees and service to match. Try fried ice cream for dessert.

This is a typical South Florida Mexican restaurant. The chips and salsa are made in-house and are very addicting. The margaritas are made well. The food is yummy!
