If you like authentic Mexican food with a little kick to it, this is the place. The food was very good, and the staff, mostly Hispanic, were very friendly and provided excellent service. It is located just off the beach.

Go at your own risk. Bad service and worse food. Don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but just not a good place to eat. Could be so much better. I wish them luck but hope for a better operation to take over.

Delicious authentic Mexican food. My husband and I have never had something we haven't liked. The staff is always polite and courteous. Sit down restaurant/bar or call in take out options. I highly recommend the shrimp burrito.

Will not go back! Service was awful! I had to hunt down our waiter to get the bill. He came to the table twice, once to get our order and once to bring the food and that was it!!

We went there after hearing about the good food, and it was close to where we stayed in the area. Our wait staff didn't speak a lot of English, so we had trouble asking questions about the food. My wife asked about one item to...More
