Wow - really great authentic Mexican food. Great guacamole. A large variety of dishes, for example, you can combine your trio of tacos. Burritos are great. Fresh fish dishes always good. Really good Margaritas too! Fun atmosphere.

I can't express how much I love this place! Everything on the menu is great and they make the best margaritas (try the coconut - it's my favorite). The staff is always friendly and attentive and the prices are reasonable.

I went with family for a relaxed meal to eat and catch up. We tried a variety of items on the extensive menu. The biggest hit was the guacamole which was excellent. The other items were OK, but not great. The wine and beer lists...More
